Summary

This text features high-interest readings drawn from contemporary, classic, academic, and popular sources. Many of the newer readings explore current trends in teacher education, such as standards, assessment, diversity, and social issues. The pedagogy includes introductions, post-notes, discussion questions, and a glossary and helps students get the most out of each reading. The new "Education Classics" logo highlights the articles that are considered classics in the field of education. A rationale for deeming the article a "classic" is provided in the pedagogy. The "Kaleidoscope Online" Web site includes approximately 18 articles—half from the book and half unique to the Web site—with additional, enhanced pedagogy.
