About The Solution

Overview

Created through a “student-tested, faculty-approved” review process with hundreds of students and faculty, TEACH is an engaging and accessible solution to accommodate the diverse lifestyles of today’s learners at a value-based price. TEACH is centered upon an underlying and thoroughly integrated objective--to help students uncover whether they are a “good fit” for the teaching profession. In Part I, the author asks students to reflect on why they want to teach and to consider who they are, and whether “who they are” is a teacher. In Parts II, III, and IV, the text covers the traditional topics of the course. Through both the pedagogy and the exposition, the author continually asks readers to reflect on how the information provided affects their decision to pursue teaching. Along with the text theme, the author stresses the two most important topics in K–12 education today and their impact in the classroom: the effect of technology and the Internet on teaching and learning, and the importance of understanding the roles that diversity and culture play in the lives of teachers and their students.


Additional Product Information

Features/Benefits

  • An innovative combination of content delivery both in print and online provides a core text and a wealth of comprehensive multimedia teaching and learning assets based on input from student focus groups and surveys, and from interviews with hundreds of faculty and students.
  • Shorter, comprehensive chapters in a modern design present content in a more engaging and accessible format without minimizing coverage for your course.
  • Chapter In Review Cards at the back of the Student Editions provide students with a portable study tool containing all of the pertinent information for class preparation.
  • Instructor Prep Cards at the back of the Instructor’s Edition make preparation simple with detachable cards for each chapter, offering a quick map of chapter content, a list of corresponding PowerPoint® and video resources, additional examples, and suggested assignments and discussion questions to help you organize chapter content efficiently.
  • A full suite of unique learning tools that appeal to different learning styles is available to students with the purchase of a new book. Quizzes, audio downloads, video podcasts, and more are only a click away.
  • The supplements package includes all of the content and resources you would expect for your course.
  • Teaching Stories are real-world examples that provide context for the philosophies, strategies, and teaching approaches explained throughout the text. The stories are intended to “interrogate” readers’ thinking, and to challenge prospective teachers to imagine themselves in similar situations.
  • Writing and Reflection sections, appearing once per chapter, prompt students to write about how current issues influence their desire or ability to become a teacher.
  • Video Case boxes integrate the text with TeachSource Education Video Cases, bringing key topics to life and simulating classroom observation by referring students to view relevant cases and supporting material online.
  • Instructor preparation cards assist instructors with planning their classes providing learning objectives, discussion topics, activities, and project ideas.
