Annotation: For future teachers, Canestrari and Marlowe (education and educational psychology and special education, Roger Williams U.) collect 23 readings by classic and contemporary educators, administrators, teacher educators, and policy shapers from the US and Canada. They challenge the currently popular at-risk perspective and the idea that there is a single path to learning, and show teachers how to critically reflect on education issues and develop their own critical questions. Readings are organized by key questions: why teachers should teach; who today's students are; what makes a good teacher; what good schools look like; how to assess student learning; and how to develop a critical voice. This edition has a new section on moving forward; a new essay on the experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender students; and new introductory vignettes and recommendations of additional readings. It omits essays that were only tangentially related to the questions and adds those that more directly answer them. Annotation ©2013 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
