Summary

The most reader friendly text in its field, the eighth edition presents a comprehensive overview of education in America. It provides in-depth commentary on educational history, philosophy, and governance, while giving special attention to current critical topics such as student diversity, standards and testing. New to this edition is a broader coverage of different kinds of diversities, with a new Chapter 3 focusing on multicultural education and group diversity. Chapter 2 is now focused on different ways of learning, with new sections on how gender relates to learning styles and on GLBT students; additionally, coverage of different groups (formerly in Chapter 12: The Struggle for Educational Opportunity) is now integrated throughout the text. Also new to this edition is an integration of the most recent uses of technology in the classroom, allowing readers to consider the influence of technology alongside the topic at hand whether it be curricular issues, learner diversity, or teacher effectiveness. For the Instructor, Sadker is accompanied by a new Instructor Resource, PrepCenter. PrepCenter is the when-ever, where-ever, how-ever approach to creating a more engaging classroom experience every time you step in front of your class. This new online instructor resource allows you to search our assets by chapter, by concept, or by media type.
