Educational Foundations: An Anthology of Critical Readings Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This anthology of critical readings (for students about to enter the teaching profession and for those interested in carefully examining schools and schooling) features provocative, engaging authors whose views are politicized, but whose writing and opinions matte - not because they are gadflies, but because their ideas work and their achievements as teachers, principals, and policy shapers are so notable.</p> <p></p> <p>Educational Foundations: An Anthology of Critical Readings is organized around the following questions: Why teach? Who are today's students? What makes a good teacher? How should we assess student learning? What does a good school look like? How does one develop a critical voice (in the face of state mandates, administrative edicts, and the continuous cycle of reform and retrenchment)? </p> <p>Alan S Canestrari and Bruce A Marlowe's answers are bold and refreshing. They eschew the unquestioning compliance so characteristic of new teachers. Also, by taking a hard look at traditional educational practice, they serve as models for the kind of reflective practitioners we hope pre-service students will become when they enter the field.</p> <p></p> <p>The key feature of this anthology are the readings by authors who have discovered their own critical voices so that new teachers can begin to develop their own.</p> <p></p> <p>These readings offer a platform for discussion and debate that may be used by instructors to increase student knowledge of pedagogy and to provide authentic opportunities for potential teachers to think critically about teaching and learning.

Book News Annotation:

Aimed at students about to enter the teaching profession, this volume presents 24 classic and new essays reflecting on various educational practices. The editors have intentionally chosen authors with strong views that reflect particular biases. Topics include, for example, Ebonics and culturally responsive instruction, the inclusion of students with disabilities into general education classrooms, and the current emphasis on standardized testing.

Synopsis:

Click 'Additional Materials' for downloadable sample chapter The authors have here assembled a wonderful collection of classic and new essays by some of the masters in the field. You will experience the exhilarating highs and crushing lows that teaching offers. If you can't get engaged with these essays, check your pulse to make sure you still have one. - Gerald W. Bracey, George Mason University and High/Scope Educational Research Foundation Its greatest strength is potentially in its use of some classic pieces (and voices) in combination with a spread of contemporary voices in subsectors of education. - Dr. Fred Bedelle, Jr., Dean of Graduate Studies, Lincoln Memorial UniversityEducational Foundations: An Anthology of Critical Readings provides an exciting alternative to foundations texts currently on the market.
