Summary

Created through a "student-tested, faculty-approved" review process with hundreds of students and faculty, TEACH is an engaging and accessible solution to accommodate the diverse lifestyles of today's learners at a value-based price. TEACH is centered upon an underlying and thoroughly integrated objective--to help students uncover whether they are a "good fit" for the teaching profession. In Part I, the author asks students to reflect on why they want to teach and to consider who they are, and whether "who they are" is a teacher. In Parts II, III, and IV, the text covers the traditional topics of the course. Through both the pedagogy and the exposition, the author continually asks readers to reflect on how the information provided affects their decision to pursue teaching. Along with the theme of the text, the author stresses the two most important topics in K-12 education today and their impact in the classroom: the effect of technology and the Internet on teaching and learning, and the importance of understanding the roles that diversity and culture play in the lives of teachers and their students.
