A critical anthology that examines the nature and purpose of the teaching profession in the United States
Drawing on first-person accounts and sociological, historical, and literary sources, The Teacher in American Society: A Critical Anthology examines the nature of the teaching profession in the United States and the purpose behind the work of Kâ€“12 teachers. In addition to selections from novels and first-person accounts, editor Eugene F. Provenzo draws from a wide range of popular culture sources, including films, cartoons, and â€œYouTubeâ€ videos to convey not only the work and experience of teachers, but also how teachers are perceived in our society.
- Popular and classic selections demonstrate that learning to teach well is a deeply reflective act.
- Critical questions at the beginning of each reading encourage students to think about teaching in the context of a wide range of cultures, traditions, and teaching [b1] experiences.
- Further Readings and Linking to Popular Culture sections in each Part opener lead students to a range of resources beyond the text.
