Learn what it takes to be an effective professional teacher with SCHOOL: AN INTRODUCTION TO EDUCATION.

With this text, authors Edward Ebert and Richard Culyer have developed a compelling and timely approach that gives you a thorough overview of what it means to be a successful teacher. You'll read first-person accounts and get helpful strategies and tips from prominent educators--as well as in-service teachers--that give you realistic insight into what it means to be an educator in today's rapidly changing society.
