Product Description:

A unique introduction to education text designed to help pre-service teachers identify and confirm certification levels for their future careers in teaching. The book focuses on 12 students, as well as teachers and administrators, using them as examples in the opening chapters as well as throughout the book. Along with the book comes a DVD that is also unique in that it includes classroom footage of the focus students and teachers featured in the text. The overall theme of the book is “how are the children?” This serves as a reminder that all teachers must always remember to think of the student first.

The text brings teaching to life by taking the reader into a real school with real teachers and students. All but one chapter begins with aTeaching in Focusfeature that focuses on one of the ten-featured teachers and an experience from their classroom that fits with the content of the chapter. Rural, suburban, and urban schools are represented to help teaching students decide if teaching is right for them, what kind of teacher they want to be, and what age students they would like to teach.

Some of the other pedagogical features in the book include:

Teacher’s Days, Delights, and Dilemmas-In each chapter a state Teacher of the Year writes about experiences and lessons learned related to the chapter content.

FAQ'S

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?

4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer.

If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.

It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
