An engaging overview of who teachers are, the work they do, and the realities of life in the classroom Your Introduction to Education takes readers on a journey into authentic classrooms and guides them through life in real classrooms lived by real teachers and real students. One of the core goals of this work is to help readers discover whether teaching is for them and, if it is, what their potential strengths and weakness as educators might be. The text weaves the real-life experiences of eight teachers and eight students from four schools across the country into its content. These people and places are drawn from urban, suburban, and rural settings, allowing readers to 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. Your Introduction to Education, 4th Edition is also available via Revel(TM) , an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience.
