Introduction to Teaching: Becoming a Professional, Fourth Edition, introduces beginning education students to the real world of teaching, providing education students with an honest look at the students, classrooms, and schools they'll encounter.


Three themes central to teaching today-professionalism, diversity, and reform -are woven through the text to give students deeper understanding of and better preparation for the teaching profession. Two central questions frame the text: “Do I want to be a teacher?” and “What kind of teacher do I want to become?” provide students a core examination of key topics. The fourth edition continues to provide a comprehensive and readable introduction to the teaching profession.


With the most comprehensive coverage of diversity in the introduction to education market, the Fourth Edition introduces a new Chapter 5 Student Diversity: Development, Ability, & Exceptionalities that explains how developmental differences affect both teachers and students. This edition now provides three diversity chapters and an Exploring Diversity feature in every chapter. Teaching in urban settings discussions in seven chapters introduces the challenges and rewards of teaching in an urban setting and are set off by a marginal icon.
