Synopsis

The second edition of Introduction to Teaching: Making a Difference in Student Learning is the ideal beginning text for aspiring teachers. Acclaimed authors Gene Hall, Linda Quinn, and Donna Gollnick thoroughly prepare students to make a difference as teachers, presenting first-hand stories and evidence-based practices while offering a student-centered approach to learning. The authors focus on how to address one of the biggest challenges facing many of today's schools-making sure that all students are learning-and help teachers make student learning the primary focus in all that they do. From true-to-life challenges that teachers will face (high-stakes testing, reduced funding, low retention, Common Core Standards) to the inspiration and joy they will discover throughout their teaching careers, this text paints a realistic picture of the real life of a teacher.
