EDUCATIONAL FOUNDATIONS, Second Edition, explains today's schools for those who are trying to picture themselves within the education profession. The book makes educational foundations topics relevant and personally meaningful to both young learners and mature adult learners-while also offering the comprehensive scope, scholarly depth, and conceptual analysis of contemporary issues that will help readers understand the field and transition smoothly into their career. This new edition includes a greater emphasis on InTASC and Common Core State Standards, and incorporates a number of new features that enable readers to gain a realistic and insightful perspective of the education profession.
  • The text has been thoroughly revised to reflect current standards, including InTASC and Common Core State Standards. A list of relevant InTASC Standards to be addressed is presented at the beginning of each chapter.
  • “Did You Get It?” quizzes allow students to measure their performance against the learning objectives in each chapter. One question for each learning objective is featured in the textbook to encourage students to go to CengageBrain.com, take the full quiz, and check their understanding.
  • TeachSource Videos, introduced throughout the text and viewable at the Education CourseMate website, feature footage from the classroom to help students relate key chapter content to real-life scenarios. Critical-thinking questions encourage students to reflect on the video content.
  • An “American Educational Spotlight” in each chapter contains personal and professional portraits of notable individuals from diverse backgrounds who contributed to the topic under discussion in a meaningful way.
  • “FlipSides” present students with a range of philosophical and practical education dilemmas, garner arguments for each position, and invite readers to decide for themselves. For example, the “FlipSide” in Chapter 8 asks, “What are the best practices for teaching a challenging and rigorous curriculum to low-income and minority students: the traditional approach or the cultural competence approach?”
  • “Diverse Voices” in several chapters present personal essays from individuals who have lived issues discussed in the text-such as disability, race, sexual identity, poverty, and academic interest-and suggest ways teachers can help students deal with them. For example: “A Teacher Finds His Niche” explores the question of how teachers can keep academic expectations high for students who are not “academic stars.”
  • “Reflect and Discuss Activities” help students develop the essential skill of being reflective practitioners. Located immediately following major concepts in each chapter, these “minds-on” thought exercises help students make the information they just read relevant and personally meaningful. Instructors can adapt and revise these socially mediated or individual activities in accordance with their instructional goals.
  • Icons, which are visibly incorporated throughout each chapter, flag topics in the text that highlight issues of diversity, Common Core State Standards, InTASC Standards, 21st century skills, and technology.
  • Written in an appealing, conversational style, and using examples that immediately resonate with prospective student teachers, this thought-provoking text provides a timely and insightful perspective of American education. It addresses students' needs for relevance and meaning as well as professors' needs for respected foundations content and conceptual challenge.
  • The textbook's “A Closer Look” feature presents primary sources for students to further explore and analyze key issues related to education, teaching, and learning.
