Genre: Business & Economics

The underlying and thoroughly integrated premise of this text is to help students uncover whether they are a good fit for the teaching profession. In Part I, the author asks students to reflect on why they want to teach and to consider who they are, and whether who they are is a teacher. In Parts II, III, and IV, the text moves on to cover the traditional topics of the course; through both the pedagogy and the exposition, the author continues to ask readers to reflect on how the information she is providing affects their decision to pursue teaching.Along with the theme of the text, the author stresses the two most important topics in K-12 education today and their impact in the classroom: the effect of technology and the Internet on teaching and learning, and the importance of understanding the roles that diversity and culture play in the lives of teachers and their students.

Simon and Schuster Quick Access Reference for Writers

Author: Lynn Quitman Troyka
Publisher: Prentice Hall

Release Date: 2003-07-01
Genre: Language Arts & Disciplines

PREFACE TO STUDENTS A personal message from Lynn Troyka to students Many of you as writers have much in common with me. Sure, I've been writing longer, so I've had more practice, and lots of rules are cemented in my head by this time (though some stubbornly refuse to stick, and I still need to look them up). Rather, our shared experiences during the act of writing define our commonalities. After all, we're each trying to put into words ideas worthy of someone else's taking the time to read them. When I write, I'm often unsure of how to begin (starting in the middle and then working backward and forward usually helps). Not infrequently, I'm stuck for examples sufficiently effective to get my point across (running my thoughts past my friends can often get me going). Somewhat regularly, the precise expression that I'm looking for eludes me as I rummage through the clutter of words in my mind (using a thesaurus commonly helps me sort things out, as long as I attend to the subtle differences in meanings of synonyms). I offer this book to you as my partners in the process of writing, hoping that its pages suggest strategies that enhance your abilities to give voice to your thoughts. You're always welcome to write me [email protected] express your reactions to my book and to share your own experiences as a writer. I'd like to end this message with a personal story. When I was an undergraduate years ago, handbooks weren't as common as they are now. Questions about writing nagged at me, and no one seemed to have the answers I sought. One day, browsing through the library, I found a dust-covered book sitting on the wrong shelf. Its title included the words "handbook" and "writers." I read that book hungrily and often. Back then, I could never have imagined that someday I might write such a book myself. Now that I've completed theSimon & Schuster Quick Access Reference for Writers,Fourth Edition, I'm amazed that I ever had the nerve to begin. What this proves to me—and I hope to you—is that anyone can write. Students don't always believe that. I hope you will. With cordial regards, Lynn Troyka HOW TO USE QUICK ACCESS YourSimon & Schuster Quick Access Reference for Writersis a reference book, like a dictionary or an encyclopedia.
