About

Overview

THOSE WHO CAN, TEACH, 14th Edition, offers a state-of-the-art, dynamic, and reader-friendly approach to help students make informed decisions about entering the teaching profession. Using multiple sources, including biographies, narratives, profiles, and interviews with top educators and scholars, the text exposes students to the realities of teaching while inspiring and welcoming them to a rewarding, high-impact career. The acclaimed author team's direct, conversational tone invites readers to reflect on the satisfactions and problems of teaching in the United States, and casts a teaching career as a positive challenge.

Features and Benefits

  • Two 'bookend' sections, “Let's Get Started” and “Before You Close This Book,” offer important reflection questions to guide students before and after they read the text.
  • “From Pre-service to Practice” case studies portray the realities (both positive and negative) of teaching.
  • TeachSource videos, introduced in the text and viewable online, feature footage from the classroom to help students relate key chapter content to real-life scenarios. Critical-thinking questions provide opportunities for in-class or online discussion and reflection.
  • Coverage of InTASC standards includes a chapter-opening list of standards to help students identify where key standards are addressed in the chapter. These callouts and a standards correlation chart help students make connections between what they are learning in the textbook and the standards.
  • The text's overarching theme, “Why Teach,” is posed in Chapter 1 and reinforced in “A Final Word” sections at the end of each chapter, encouraging students to remain focused on the question throughout the text.
  • Significant content includes a balanced look at accountability issues such as standards, high-stakes testing, and reform; other topics include technology, cheating, bullying, sexual harassment and homophobia, diversity, vouchers, and legal issues.

What's New

  • NEW MindTap for Education is a first-of-its-kind digital solution that prepares teachers by providing them with the knowledge, skills, and competencies they must demonstrate to earn an education degree and state licensure, and to begin a successful career. Through activities based on real-life teaching situations, MindTap elevates students’ thinking by giving them experiences in applying concepts, practicing skills, and evaluating decisions, guiding them to become reflective educators.
  • NEW Learning Objectives: The learning objectives correlated to the main sections in each chapter show students what they need to know to process and understand the information in the chapter. After completing the chapter, students should be able to demonstrate how they can use and apply their new knowledge and skills.
  • NEW Material on Technology and the Teacher: Because today's students learn so much through technology, new technology coverage is integrated throughout the book. In addition, a full chapter entitled “What Should Teachers Know about Technology and Its Impact on Schools?” has been completely rewritten to reflect current thinking and practice. The chapter addresses the many uses of technology to increase and enhance learning for all students, including students with disabilities.
  • NEW Up Close Feature: This new feature portrays the realities (both the good and bad) of teaching and presents relevant research findings.
  • NEW Digital Downloads: Downloadable and often customizable, these practical and professional resources allow students to immediately implement and apply this textbook's content in the field.

MindTap® Education for Ryan/Cooper/Bolick, Those Who Can, Teach 14e represents a new approach to teaching and learning. A highly personalized, fully customizable learning platform, MindTap helps students to elevate thinking by guiding them to: know, remember, and understand concepts critical to becoming a great teacher; apply concepts, create tools, and demonstrate performance and competency in key areas in the course; prepare artifacts for the portfolio and eventual state licensure to launch a successful teaching career; and develop the habits to become a reflective practitioner. As students move through each chapter’s Learning Path, they engage in a scaffolded learning experience designed to move them up Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy from lower- to higher-order thinking skills. MindTap helps instructors facilitate better outcomes by evaluating how future teachers plan and teach lessons in ways that make content clear and help diverse students learn, assessing the effectiveness of their teaching practice, and adjusting teaching as needed. The Student Progress App makes grades visible in real time so students and instructors always have access to current standings in the class. Additionally, MindTap for helps instructors easily set their course since it integrates into the existing Learning Management System and saves instructors time by allowing them to fully customize any aspect of the Learning Path. Instructors can change the order of the student learning activities, hide activities they don’t want for the course, and—most importantly—add any content they do want (e.g., YouTube videos, Google docs, links to state education standards).
