The most reader friendly text in its field, the tenth edition presents a comprehensive overview of education in America. It provides in-depth commentary on educational history, philosophy, and governance, while giving special attention to current critical topics such as the changing federal role in educational finance. Newly revised for this edition, Chapter 4 (Life in School and at Home) now includes obesity, eating disorders, and a revised section on poverty. A major revision of Chapter 5, now titled Reforming America's Schools, includes updates from the stimulus plan based on new reports on federal programs and new funding formulas. Chapter 6 on Curriculum, Standards and Testing has a new section on emerging trends in the curriculum.
Teaching Tips boxes. These are at the suggestion of our users, and we think they are a great addition of practical tips for the reader’s first year in the classroom. A few examples of Teaching Tips boxes are Working with “Helicopter” Parents, Elusive History (on the use of primary sources), and Writing Your Philosophy of Education.
Revised Reader The Reader offers greater depth on topics, different points of view, case studies, and video clips that allow you to apply your skills and insights to specific situations. The Reader includes 52 readings (more than 29 are new in the tenth edition), 23 case studies, and 17 classroom videos. We are excited to announce our Curated Collection of Online Videos, new Teaching Tips boxes, a contemporary design, and much more. To better emphasize global education, we’ve included our Global View annotations in both the instructors edition and the student edition. In Chapter 7, we added a section on education in Finland, and throughout the book we included example of education in other countries . All of the portfolio and reflective activities were reorganized to reflect the new INTASC: Core Teaching Standards.
