Each chapter concludes with a "Glossary of Terms"to improve student content comprehension; an "Action Research"project helping the reader create meaningful questions to examine through investigation; and a case studyproviding the reader with and immediate application for the chapter content covered. Technology advantage - Video clips from this text's Companion Websiteinclude clips of teachers demonstrating effective practices that accompany the text. Includes unique pedagogical features to maximize student comprehension: "What Do Teachers Think? "where classroom teachers offer a candid view of the classroom life associated with chapter topics. "Field-Based Experience"offers suggestions for classroom and school setting activities; opportunities for the reader to practice what they have read. "Application Activity"suggests activities for student teaching, applying theory to practice. "This is the type of textbook that students like because the activities lead the students to think, reflect, and act. This type of critical pedagogy structure is excellent in that students do not need to react to political terms, Marxist themes and writers that have used this system. Instead the Vygotskian style of assisted learning provides guideposts just as one would hope teachers would do in the classroom." Professor Maria E.
