This comprehensive collection of high-interest readings drawn from a wide range of sources (contemporary, classic, academic, and popular) is designed to correlate with the goals of Introduction to Education and Foundations in Education courses. Accompanying pedagogical features, such as introductions, focus questions, post-reading notes, discussion questions, and a glossary, engage students and guide them in thinking critically about the readings. 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 highly flexible and responsive to a broad variety of course needs. Topic areas include students and teachers; schools and instruction; curriculum and standards; foundations, philosophy, and reform; educational technology; and diversity and social issues.
