Book Description

April 13, 2009 1426649339 978-1426649332 12
This comprehensive collection of high-interest readings drawn from a wide range of sources (contemporary, classic, academic, and popular) is designed to correlate with the goals of Introduction to Education and Foundations in Education courses. Accompanying pedagogical features, such as introductions, focus questions, post-reading notes, discussion questions, and a glossary, engage students and guide them in thinking critically about the readings. The book's diversity of articles and writers -- from the classic John Dewey and Carl Rogers to the contemporary Diane Ravitch, Elliot Eisner, Linda Darling-Hammond, and Alfie Kohn -- makes it highly flexible and responsive to a broad variety of course needs. Topic areas include students and teachers; schools and instruction; curriculum and standards; foundations, philosophy, and reform; educational technology; and diversity and social issues.

1.0 out of 5 stars Be Careful October 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Amazon does not make it obvious that this is a yearly publication, and that the Kindle version they sell is from 2009. This is no light reading, so you are probably ordering it for a class. Save yourself money, and order the correct edition from another seller.

Amazon would not refund me the money or replace it with the edition that I needed, so this product was neither what I needed nor refundable. Call it user error if you like, but Amazon certainly played a very sneaky role in this debacle. Look elsewhere for a deal on an e-text.

I had to get this book for a class. It's turned out to be pretty interesting though. The articles are all very insightful and helpful for a new teacher.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK. Required for class March 3, 2013
By Randy
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
OK. so I'm editing my review because for some reason I thought I was reviewing the company that sold me the book, not the book itself. I think it's OK so far. I wouldn't have baught it if it weren't required for a clas though. As it turns out, the articles that I've been requred to read have been available online anyway. Again, it's OK, but not a purchase I would make if not required.
