Teachers Schools and Society with Student CD Sadker 9th Edition

Teachers Schools and Society with Student CD Sadker 9th Edition

Teachers Schools and Society with Student CD Sadker 9th EditionThe most reader friendly text in its field, the ninth 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 the changing federal role in educational finance. Newly revised for this edition, Chapter 4 (Life in School and at Home) now includes obesity, eating disorders, and a revised section on poverty. A major revision of Chapter 5, now titled Reforming America’s Schools, includes updates from the stimulus plan based on new reports on federal programs and new funding formulas. Chapter 6 on Curriculum, Standards and Testing has a new section on emerging trends in the curriculum.

My college uses this for their introduction to education course. The book touches on the history of education in America, learning styles, multiple intelligences, g/t, special education, students’ cultures, ESOL, laws pertaining to educators, reform movements, and so much more. 3 years later this book is always in my living room, car, or backpack. I have referred to it for EVERY education class as well as some content area classes. Well written with a story to open each chapter which is referred to throughout the chapter, tying together concepts. Useful inclusion of graphic organizers, one of the most comprehensive websites I’ve seen for a textbook. I would highly recommend this book for any college or university looking for a text for their first course in their education sequence, and as a supplement for any education student that did not feel their assigned text was useful.

Review
Other reviews of this and the previous edition are the brief introduction to the training, so keep in mind that the revision date is before this text was published.
In reading the other reviews, it was obvious that the reviewers missed the point of the text – to be used in an introductory course, not a degree program in which teachers or practice would be to design lessons and units.
This text provides a great overview of educational issues and problems that someone plans to become a teacher should consider before investing time, energy and money to get certified. The short version is much better, more updated and students to use the Sadker and Sadker original text.
For anyone contemplating being a teacher, the themes presented in this book can help you decide if you really what it takes to be a teacher. It provides an overview of the challenges of political, economic and social front of educators, as well as the historical perspective of American education.
