ONE STEP FURTHER...FOUNDATIONS OF AMERICAN EDUCATIONGOES BEYOND PEDAGOGICAL KNOWLEDGE TO PROVIDE A COMPREHENSIVE APPLICATION OF RESEARCH AND THEORY TO ACTUAL CLASSROOM PRACTICE. With the goal of providing future teachers with current, truly useful information, the fourth edition of this classic text examines the philosophical and historical roots of education, its current structures and practices, and the future of the field. Material from sociology, economics, politics, public administration, finance, and law places education in a realistic context, while findings from psychology inform discussions of teaching, learning, and meeting the needs of at-risk students. Features new to the fourth edition include: Expanded discussion of major school improvement models. New video segments from the ABC News/Prentice Hall library integrated into the text. Discussion of the emerging research on technology's effect on teaching and learning. Coverage of the most current issues in education, including professionalism, equal educational opportunity/ inclusion, and school violence. In-depth discussion of the standards movement, including the push for accountability, increased student and teacher testing, new models of teacher compensation, and the redesign of teacher education.Webb, L. Dean is the author of 'Foundations of American Education', published 2002 under ISBN 9780130452320 and ISBN 0130452327.
