Becoming a Teacher
Becoming a Teacher, Sixth Edition, takes a straightforward look at what it means to be a professional teacher in today's high-stakes environment of education. Building upon a strong mentoring message that has long been the tradition of Becoming a Teacher, the Sixth Edition helps students make difficult decisions about their teaching future by fostering an awareness of the realities of teaching in America today. This no-nonsense approach provides students with the tools and information necessary to answer the questions, What does it take to become a professional teacher? and Do I want to teach? Along the way, the authors provide practical perspectives for meeting the challenges of teaching. Organized into four parts, the book addresses both practical and foundational topics to give readers a well-rounded view of the teaching profession. The book's Companion Website reinforces this decision-making with rich Internet resources, activities, multimedia, and study aids.
