Description

This text continues to focus on the dominant political, philosophical, and cultural ideologies of each historical era. The authors use a variety of pedagogical methods to tell an engaging historical story about school and society that will encourage students to create an educational philosophy of their own. This material will help prepare educators who are able to reflect critically on their teaching practices in social and institutional contexts. There are many new primary source readings that have been added throughout the entire text. Students will also benefit from the expanded discussions on charter schools, native American issues and contemporary social changes that affect the culture of teaching.
