Product Overview

Based on rapid advances in what is known about how people learn and how to teach effectively, this important book examines the core concepts and central pedagogies that should be at the heart of any teacher education program.  Stemming from the results of a commission sponsored by the National Academy of Education, "Preparing Teachers for a Changing World" recommends the creation of an informed teacher education curriculum with the common elements that represent state-of-the-art standards for the profession.  Written for teacher educators in both traditional and alternative programs, university and school system leaders, teachers, staff development professionals,   researchers, and educational policymakers, the book addresses the key foundational knowledge for teaching and discusses how to implement that knowledge within the classroom.  "Preparing Teachers for a Changing World" recommends that, in addition to strong subject matter knowledge, all new teachers have a basic understanding of  how people learn and develop, as well as how children acquire and use language, which is the currency of education. In addition, the book suggests that teaching professionals must be able to apply that knowledge  in  developing curriculum that attends to students’ needs, the demands of the content, and the social purposes of education: in teaching specific subject matter to diverse students, in managing the classroom, assessing student performance, and using technology in the classroom.
