Preparing Teachers to Educate Whole Students offers a wide-ranging comparative account of how innovative professional development programs in a number of countries guide and support teachers in their efforts to promote cognitive and socio-emotional growth in their students. The book focuses on holistic educational outcomes in an effort to better serve students in the twenty-first century and examines seven programs in all-in Chile, China, Colombia, India, Mexico, the United States, and Singapore.

Fernando M. Reimers, Connie K. Chung, and their contributors focus on a pair of issues of great significance to educators throughout the world: the need to identify and promote a full range of competencies in students as they prepare for work and life in the twenty-first century, and the need to create and enhance professional development programs for teachers that will help them cultivate these competencies in their students. Preparing Teachers to Educate Whole Students offers a unique and helpful contribution to our understanding of fundamental educational goals and the professional development programs for teachers that aim to further those goals.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Preparing Teachers to Educate Whole Students shows that the future of twenty-first century teaching is already here. With many examples of promising approaches to teacher development from around the world, the book demonstrates how we can become better at getting good ideas out of schools and into the education system--rather than keeping education systems busy pushing traditional ideas into schools." --Andreas Schleicher, special advisor on education policy to the secretary-general, and director for education and skills, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development
