For an undergraduate Introduction to Education and/or Foundations of Education course.

Experts and novices shape a journey through foundational content toward professionalism.

The ninth edition of Becoming a Teacher continues to listen to the voices of those who know – professionals and expert teachers, novices just learning the ropes, students in America’s classrooms, and pre-service learners deciding of teaching is their best career path – to help readers discover the answer to the question Is teaching for me?

With the help of these stakeholders, the new edition focuses on teacher quality through deeper attention to:

• teacher leadership, political activism, and change facilitation • diversity and culturally competent teaching  • social justice and democracy
