Bring the classroom to life using an interactive, case-based approach     
Introduction to Teaching: Becoming a Professional helps beginning education students make informed decisions about becoming a teacher and ensures that they have an up-to-date picture of the ever-changing face of education. Issues in reform, professionalism, diversity, urban education, and using technology in day-to-day teaching situations are emphasized throughout the text. Cases, classroom examples, and hands-on applications bring topics to life, allowing students to better relate to, understand, and apply the material.

To keep readers informed about the constantly changing education profession, the 7th Edition includes new topics and significant updates about important developments in education. Examples include: teacher walk-outs (Ch. 1); the opioid crisis and schools (Ch. 2); minorities and special education (Ch. 3); combatting unreliable information on the Internet (Chapter 9); data-driven instruction (Ch. 12); and the Every Child Succeeds Act (Ch. 12).  The most interactive and applied text in the field, Introduction to Teaching keeps prospective teachers actively involved in their learning and provides a realistic look at the world of teaching.
