It is important to identify what is and what is not acceptable in our 21st century schools.
Professionalism in Education enlightens pre-service and newer teachers to prepare for their first years of teaching and creates an atmosphere that engages and exudes that of favorable practice and behavior. This text enables all practitioners to consider suitable interaction with students, parents, supervisors, and colleagues.
Professionalism in Education:
- provides information to preservice teachers on how to conduct themselves, what to say/what not to say, how to manage students and parents, and the “common sense” tactics.
- approaches professionalism from a “real world” perspective.
- has three distinct sections: “Foundations of Professionalism”, “Getting the Job”, and “Keeping the Job”.
Professionalism in Education is aimed at teacher licensure college programs and is a must for any Educational Foundations course!
