Om boka

Teachers, Schools, and Society: A Brief Introduction to Education, 6th Edition, offers a broad, diverse, and stimulating view of education. Written in an engaging, student-friendly style, readers are immersed in an inspiring world of the teacher where current education headlines are brought to life. The text provides broad yet precise exposure to the realities of teaching and the role of education in our society. The text helps to answer important questions such as: Do I want to become a teacher? How do I become the best teacher possible? What should a professional in the field of education know? How are schools and teaching changing? The authors have added key findings from the research on how people learn, how to think critically about information, and how this research translates to the classroom. Focus Questions continue to provide a roadmap to the chapter content. And, McGraw Hill Connect (R) for Teachers, Schools, and Society is an interactive learning environment where you can access articles, case studies, and videos for each chapter which especially help guide students through a virtual learning environment. Instructors will also appreciate the robust resources available with this text (test bank, media videos, instructor manual, PPTs).
