Summary

Those Who Can, Teach is a dynamic, reader-friendly text that helps students make informed decisions about entering teacher education programs. This best-selling book uses multiple sources, including biographies and dialogues, to increase student interest and involvement with the material. The authors encourage students to regard becoming a teacher a positive challenge. This text is organized around four themes--"Schools and Students," "Teachers," "Foundations and the Future," and "The Teaching Profession"--and a series of questions that are key to the central issues and concerns of teaching and learning. The Tenth Edition emphasizes reflection and reflective teaching, as well as diversity. The "Open to Debate" feature explores controversial education matters. In this feature, the two authors express opposing views on issues about which they truly disagree, providing readers with a balanced perspective instead of an established theoretical agenda. The "Voices from the Classroom" feature provides interviews with real teachers, administrators, and other school personnel who give tips and advice to new teachers on key topics. "Pause and Reflect Questions" appear 3-4 times in each chapter to encourage students to stop and consider an idea and its relevance to their own experiences. Increased coverage of standards-based education throughout the text includes a new correlating table that connects textbook content to INTASC (Interstate New Teacher Assessment & Support Consortium) teacher standards.
