Introduction to Teaching.
Stinnett, T.M.; And Others
This book is written for the student who is considering a career as a teacher or in an education-related occupation. It suggests ways to explore the life of a teacher and to gather first-hand observations of public and private school employment. It examines the job possibilities available in the light of the dwindling demand for teachers. It also explores the characteristics and qualities that are found in successful teachers. The following considerations for the prospective teacher are discussed in depth: (1) teaching as a career; (2) opportunities and careers in education; (3) the work of the teacher; (4) expectations and realities in teaching; (5) the teacher and the culture of the school; (6) the teacher and the community; (7) teaching as a profession; (8) legal requirements for teachers; and (9) the personal qualities of the teacher. A glossary of education terms and suggested readings are appended. (JD)
