Teaching is a great text for students considering a career in the field of education. Teaching helps teachers of tomorrow explore the world of education and discover what makes a teacher effective. Your students will learn about the history of education in the United States and how schools impact society. They will learn about all types of learners – how they change physically, intellectually, emotionally, and socially – and how that impacts the way they are taught. They will also learn how to design an instructional plan, choose teaching strategies, and create an effective learning environment for their future students.Teaching includes the following four units:
  • Unit 1, You: The Teacher of Tomorrow, focuses on what a teacher does, the qualities of an effective teacher, and steps to becoming a teacher.
  • Unit 2, The Learner, explores human development, various theories of development, and the various developmental stages of children through teens.
  • Unit 3, The School, describes the early history of education in America, modern history of education, and current aspects of schools, including federal, state, and local responsibilities.
  • Unit 4, The Teacher, covers learning diversity, what makes an effective teacher, lesson planning, instructional strategies, technology, assessment, classroom management, and the student's future as a teacher.
