Using a straightforward and versatile question and answer approach, the Second Edition of Ask the Teacher speaks directly to the teacher candidate with a wealth of tips about educational issues in foundations, history, psychology, curriculum, methodology, classroom management, and family involvement. Designed to guide the student throughout the curricula of a professional education program, this text poses universal questions and provides responses that are grounded in educational theory and practice as well as the expertise of the author, Mark Ryan. Because its purpose is to stimulate reflective thought, Ask the Teacher is not for the passive reader but for one who desires a contextual intellectual discourse--a dialogue that promotes a genuinely reflective understanding of the diverse classroom in the 21st Century. This useful, comprehensive handbook on teaching can be used as a core text or supplement in introductory education courses. Its targeted and useful information will also continue to be of use to the beginning teacher in their formative years of teaching.
