Introduction to Education
- Janice Koch - Emerita, Hofstra University
Teach is a concise introduction to education that challenges students’ preconceived notions of teaching in order to transform them into reflective practitioners. Empathizing with the difficulties students face as they move from the college classroom to their own classrooms, revered author Janice Koch invites readers to both reflect on their own dispositions for teaching and look outside of themselves to the demands of the profession, making the philosophy of teaching and learning accessible and relevant. The Fourth Edition emphasizes the changing student population and the role of technology and globalization in the field, while also including the Interstate Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium (InTASC) standards correlating with each chapter’s content. With the guidance of this supportive text, students will gain vital exposure by engaging with professional standards from the very start of their career.
