Teaching, Leading, and Learning encourages pre-service and in-service teachers to question the "why, what, when, and how" of instructional strategies. The text combines theory and current research with practice in order to help teachers understand the performances, dispositions, and knowledge base required for success. Teachers are encouraged to consider the "big-picture variables": professional development, teachers as leaders, the intangibles of teaching, parents and families, and working creatively within the system. With an emphasis on meeting current standards, each chapter includes marginal icons that reference INTASC (Interstate New Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium) standards, as well as recent developments related to the No Child Left Behind Act. Coverage of hot topics in the field includes how teachers should respond to terrorism and bullying, the use of portfolios to meet requirements for beginning teachers, and assessment and accountability. Unique coverage of strategies for teachers who work with young children underscores the significance of neuroscience and brain-based learning for children from birth to age eight.
