Ever since its first edition, education professors have relied on the Sadkers for their comprehensive coverage of all aspects of American education. From the underlying principles of teaching and schooling to the operation of schools, the fifth edition retains that same great coverage. But, it also builds on this foundation. Now, fully updated, with more exciting new material than ever, "Teachers, Schools, and Society, Fifth Edition" offers a structure unsurpassed in breadth. Written in an informal and highly engaging style that appeals to students, "Teachers, Schools, and Society" is punctuated throughout with interesting features and sidebars. Over 50 contemporary issues are discussed and there is a special guide that walks you through them. At an end of the text is a forty-page handbook on observing schools and classrooms that is filled with helpful tips and activities. The fifth edition offers new material on induction, technology, ethics, student diversity, multiple and emotional intelligence, national standards and testing, and the emergence of EMOs (Educational Maintenance Organizations).
Combine all this with an excellent author team, detailed appendices, and a complete supplements package, and you have an extraordinary resource for introductory coverage of American education.
