Introduction to Teaching, third 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 decision-making— are woven through the text to give students deeper understanding of the teaching profession and to better prepare them for that profession. Two questions frame the text, “Do I want to be a teacher?” and “What kind of teacher do I want to become?”. Case studies at the beginnings of chapters provide a frame of reference for understanding chapter content while numerous teaching vignettes throughout the chapters provide vivid examples that increase reader understanding and interest.
