Foundations of Educationincorporates relevant interdisciplinary perspectives and emphasizes coverage of key issues in education, with up-to-date research, primary resources, and documentation. This text provides comprehensive and substantive coverage of all "foundational" areasincluding social, philosophical, historical, political, economic, curricular, and legalfor students who are preparing for a career in teaching and for those who simply wish to learn more about significant contemporary issues in education. The authors have included strong, thought-provoking pedagogy, and have emphasized the growing role of technology in education. This Teaching in Action Edition is packaged with a special guide that correlates text material with the HM Video Cases. Well known for its detailed and practical explanations of reading, writing, and study strategies,Secondary School Literacy Instructionis required reading for all non-literacy teaching majors. Its motivational pedagogy especially appeals to pre-service teachers, who quickly realize that the text will help them improve their students' progress. Two hallmark chapters on content area teaching (Chapters 10 and 11) have brought this text wide acclaim for its unique application of literacy and study skills in all secondary subject areas. The text also is recognized for its proven pedagogy, including the popularMeeting the Challengefeature that appears in every chapter. New!Focus on English Language LearnersandStruggling Readersfeatures highlight the important applications for students with special needs in separate, easy-to-locate sections in each chapter. With diversity coverage integrated more meaningfully throughout the chapters, Chapter 12, "Content Literacy for Diverse Students" has been eliminated as a stand-alone chapter. Updated!Substantial revision to Chapter 1, "Content Area Literacy in a Changing World," features an updated section on digital literacy, fluency, gender issues, writing instruction, and the impact of legislation such as the No Child Left Behind Act. A newMeeting the Challengevignette addresses English language learners. Updated!Significant updates in Chapter 2, "Integrating Technology in Content Area Literacy Instruction," include new coverage of media literacy (television viewing, videotaping, video production, use of "blogs," "fanfiction" writing, use of cell phones and digital cameras, use of collaboration software) and a newMeeting the Challengevignette on the use of web logs. Houghton Mifflin Video Cases, four- to six-minute video modules presenting real classroom scenarios, enable students to observe the day-to-day challenges and rewards of teaching from the convenience of their computers. Available on the Online Teaching and Study Centers, HM Video Cases are enhanced by classroom artifacts, Viewing Questions, Interview Transcripts, Key Terms, and bonus video footage. AMatrix of Content Area Coverage,located on the text's endpapers, indicates pages throughout the text where various content areas are referenced to enhance the text's relevance to prospective content area secondary teachers. Similarly, for added convenience, aContent Area Marginal Iconhighlights specific content material (math, science, English, history) as it appears in the text. Updated!PopularMeeting the Challengevignettes present several new real-life cases throughout the text.
