Your Introduction to Education Explorations in Teaching


Your Introduction to Education Explorations in Teaching by Sara Davis Powell

Sara Davis Powell's Your Introduction to Education is the Introduction to Teaching/Foundations text - built from the ground up on authentic classroom experience - that empowers future teachers to explore content and classrooms, reflect on what they're learning, and develop their own sense of the kind of teacher they aspire to be.


Where Do I Stand inventories at the beginning of each chapter - and then the opportunity to re-evaluate at the chapter's end - offer students an opportunity to discover personal thoughts/beliefs. This is a major intention of the introduction course. Special features brought these chapters to life. Baetta Stoney, Kansas State University Where Do I Stand? and Where Do I Stand Now? sections are valuable as diagnostic and reflective tools for students. The Teaching in Focus sections bring real life classroom stories into the content of the chapter. Also, the availability of viceos of real classrooms and teachers
interviews and room tour is a valuable asset for future teachers. Elsa C. Ruiz, Universityof Texas, San Antonio The content is broken down into reasonable chunks that wil allow all learning styles to be able to grasp complex topics through a variety of media. Information is well presented with the supplement of MyEducationLab for virtual classroom strategies. Students can see and hear the lessons and strategies, and reflect on their personal experiences. Colleen M. Wilson, Jacksonville University I found the writing to be clear, concise and student

-friendly with a nice compliment of real life scenarios, inventories, graphs, tables, and guiding questions for the student. Carol Higy, University of North Carolina at Pembroke
