Explore the world teaching today through first-person stories and in-depth coverage of current issues

With a bright and engaging writing style that enlists the voices of experts as well as novices, Becoming a Teacher explores what it means to be a professional teacher in today's climate of accountability, high-stakes testing, and changing legislation.

Becoming a Teacher embraces and articulates the challenges of the field of education, outlining ways to be an agent of change in the profession; pinpointing meaningful uses of technology in the classroom; clarifying the realities of diversity in the classroom; and clearly outlining past, present, and future thoughts on curriculum, instruction, assessment, management, philosophy, and issues in education. The down-to-earth and straightforward approach provides students with the tools and information necessary to answer the question, "Is teaching for me?"

Fully revised, the 11th Edition includes increased emphasis on culturally responsive teaching; two new chapters that address curriculum, standards, and student learning (Ch. 11) and becoming a professional teacher (Ch. 13); a thoroughly revised chapter on integrating technology into teaching (Ch. 12); emphasis on teacher preparation and STEM; and expanded chapter coverage to address the most current trends and issues in teaching such as students of undocumented immigrant parents, adverse childhood experiences (ACE), and trauma-sensitive schools. Becoming a Teacher, 11th Edition is also available via RevelTM, an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience.
