The reader includes 48 readings; more than half are new in the 9th edition, 23 case studies, and 17 classroom videos.How can instructors use The Reader? Some assign certain readings on topics they will explore in greater depth in class; others assign readings if they lack the time to cover them in class. The case studies are focused on real-life, practical, problems facing a teacher. They bring a reality test to the ideas in the text. You can explore them individually, in small groups, or in class discussions. The classroom observation videos share short clips of classrooms, teachers and students in action. They are designed to provide you with additional views of what teaching looks like. Just like the readings and case studies, the classroom videos include analysis questions to help you explore the issues raised. The inside front cover of the book includes a table of contents for The Reader. We hope you and your students enjoy and grow from the opinions and ideas that emerge from The Reader.
