This collection of high-interest readings drawn from a wide range of sources (contemporary, classic, academic, and popular) is designed to bring to life the topics covered in your Introduction to Education and Foundations in Education courses. Each selection is accompanied by features such as introductions, focus questions, post-reading notes, discussion questions, and a glossary, to help guide your thinking. 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 a useful career resource. Topic areas include students and teachers; schools and instruction; curriculum and standards; foundations, philosophy, and reform; educational technology; and diversity and social issues.
