Highly respected for its substantive coverage and analysis of all foundational areas--social, philosophical, historical, political, economic, curricular, and legal--FOUNDATIONS OF EDUCATION, International Edition, helps students understand the key educational issues and policies affecting American education. Through an array of applied features, the authors help to prepare students for their careers by tying the book's themes to students' future practice.

Reflective pedagogy encourages students to form their own unique philosophy of teaching, laying a strong foundation for a lifelong career. Completely up-to-date throughout, this eleventh edition also provides the latest information on accountability, technology, diversity, and many other important topics.
- "Preservice to Practice" features help students apply and think critically about concepts discussed in each chapter. Students are asked to read vignettes that describe situations in which new teachers might find themselves, and answer questions that encourage critical and applied thinking about how they might best respond in each situation.
- "Taking Issue" charts present controversial issues in the field of education, offering arguments on both sides of a question so that students can understand why the topic is important and how it affects contemporary schools. Instructors may use these charts as the basis for class discussion or assignments.
- "Technology @ School" features in every chapter help keep students up to date on relevant developments regarding educational technology, and provide information that they may find useful to apply during their teaching careers.
- Study aids include "Focus" questions at the beginning of each chapter, which provide students with an advance organizer of chapter material. "Refocus" questions after major chapter sections help students reinforce their comprehension by asking them to connect concepts discussed in the text to their own situation. "Topical Overview" charts summarize and compare key topics, providing a concise tool for reviewing important chapter concepts.
