Summary

Foundations of American Education emphasizes the defining topics in education today – a diverse population, an increasingly globalized society, and the impact of standards and assessment on student learning. Explore this text to gain an understanding of how the evolution of education affects today’s teaching and learning in a constantly changing world.

Read, think about, and respond to current educational issues through an engaging ABC News and Video Insight feature providing video and thought-provoking questions connecting chapter content to current and controversial issues in education. In addition, a Controversial Issue feature asks you to consider your values and beliefs as you read about and reflect on controversial school issues complete with for and against statements for your consideration.

Readers will find a new chapter on Assessment, an important part of the teaching and learning process, of particular interest as it highlights the major purposes and types of educational assessment and the role of assessment in standards-based education. A heavily-revised chapter on Education in a Global Context focuses on current educational trends including globalization, changing demographics, and the role of technology in this global environment.
