Lessons for New Teachers by Vito Perrone, head of Harvard’s graduate school of Education, combines an historical perspective on teaching with the daily issues and challenges of today’s classrooms. The text creates a basis for ongoing reflection on the teaching and learning exchange. It introduces pre-service teachers to core concerns within the profession such as assessment, classroom management, and different approaches to teaching. Lessons for New Teachers begins with the belief that those going into teaching already possess strong social and intellectual commitments, that they are desirous for ways to think about teaching and learning, schools and communities, in more constructive ways, to develop strong dispositions toward reflection, a more powerful professionalism. It is also premised on the understanding that teachers want the teaching-learning exchange to be more productive and the schools more engaging for children and young people.
