Your Introduction to Education is an engaging overview of who teachers are, the work they do, and the realities of life in the classroom. The text takes you on a journey into authentic classrooms and guides you through life in real classrooms lived by real teachers and real students. One of the core goals of this work is to help you discover whether teaching is for you and, if it is, what your potential strengths and weakness as educators might be. The text weaves the real-life experiences of 8 teachers and 8 students from 4 schools across the country into its content. These people and places are drawn from urban, suburban and rural settings, so you can examine teaching and learning from a variety of perspectives.
The 4th Edition has been significantly updated to address topics like preventing bullying, teacher evaluation, social media, cultural and linguistic diversity, LGBTQ students and teacher effectiveness research.
