"Captures the sense of urgency, excitement and challenge all teachers face as they prepare students for a future that is already here. Such an environment calls for extensive research into understanding how the forces of change, and emerging waves of interest associated with these forces, inspire and invite us to imagine a future of learning that is as powerful as it is optimistic for learners from early childhood though to tertiary education"--Back cover.

"This book trains the teacher to meet two of his chief problems: (1) How to make use of the instinctive tendencies of the child to give him a well-rounded education; (2) How to minimize the effects of all tendencies that obstruct correct learning. This book organizes, describes, and evaluates modern trends in education in the light of psychology and of standards, gives special emphasis to the objectives of education, and studies the specific practices by which these objectives are reached. It presents concretely the problems faced by the teacher, and helps the latter to solve these problems. In general, it covers: (1) A survey of the backgrounds of education as generally accepted; and (2) An exposition and analysis of current ways of teaching. The book clarifies the relation between theory and practice by means of a concrete exposition of the backgrounds of teaching. It shows the relationship among the various teaching techniques, and presents a critique of their respective values"--Book. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2014 APA, all rights reserved).

In an accessible and meaningful way, Early Childhood Education examines foundational topics that encourage early childhood education students to think, reflect, and develop opinions, theories, and philosophies about their field.

Service-learning is a powerful method of teaching and learning that has been used effectively for more than two decades. This volume contributes further to the Advances in Service-Learning Research series that focuses upon service-learning in teacher education. Research and theory indicate that knowledge of service-learning pedagogy and how to implement it in teacher candidates’ future classrooms can enhance field experiences of teacher education and the civic mission of schools. However, research also reminds us that that the practice of service-learning is nuanced and complex. No two service-learning experiences are alike, yet universal characteristics across service-learning experiences define its essence and distinction. It is through research that digs deep into these nuanced issues that we can learn more about the different characteristics of the experience that define service-learning and guide implementation. The preface provides an interview with Andy Furco, an early advocate of service-learning and noted leader who has fostered service- learning in K-12 and higher education throughout the United States and across the globe. Andy Furco’s commentary offers an historical overview of the field as well as how the field can advance, providing insights for those new to the field as well as those who have engaged in service-learning. The preface and thirteen chapters together provide empirical and conceptual support for including service-learning. Concurrently, this scholarship provides guidance for implementing service-learning in teacher preparation and in K-12 education. Interrelated themes include self efficacy, connections with communities, diversity, and program development in teacher education.

Written by a teacher and coach, this book is filled with stories and tools that enable teachers to use a coaching approach in the classroom. We can rely on the fact that living and working conditions in the world change, have always changed and will continue to change, and probably change faster, and faster. Education is the way communities have developed for preparing the next generation for their living and working lives, learning from what's been done before. The Education System is continuously looking for the best ways to get the best results for ourselves, now and in the future. Any well-functioning system uses feedback to learn from its own results. Coaching (the art of questioning) is an empowering way to learn from results in order to deal with continuous and accelerating change. Coaching moves the communication focus from "Tell" to "Ask." A coaching approach is a natural addition to a teacher's or headteachers' skillset.

Tomorrow's Teachers, Tomorrow's Schools, and Tomorrow's Schools of Education are a collection of reports from the Holmes Group, and later the Holmes Partnership, addressing principles of teaching as a profession by focusing on the teachers' roles in the schools, the role of schools in communities, and the role and obligation of schools and colleges of education in the preparation of teachers. Tomorrow's Teachers (1986) outlines the principles of teaching as a profession, which include making the education of teachers rigorous and relevant, providing defensible standards of entry into the profession, and connecting schools of education with K-12 schools. Tomorrow's Schools (1990) covers the principles for the design of professional development schools including promoting more ambitious conceptions of teaching and learning, adding to and reorganizing knowledge about teaching and learning, ensuring responsible research and development is done in schools, providing professional development for veteran teachers and administrators to improve schools, creating incentives for college faculties to work in schools, and strengthening relations between schools and the broader political/social/economic communities in which they reside. Tomorrow's Schools of Education (1995) advocates a new core curriculum for all prospective education professionals and the necessary restructuring of the organization of schools, colleges and departments of education in research universities. This collection is useful for courses on teacher education, curriculum development, restructuring schools of education and teacher preparation, educational administration, principles of teaching and learning, school reform, teacher reform, research on teaching and learning, research on the development of schools.
