One that “makes prospective teachers really think about the profession and their impact on it.” Written with the express purpose of developing a meaningful understanding of the critical role teachers play in the development of young people, Diaz, Pelletier and Provenzo use six themes as the foundation of their writing: professionalism, values and assumptions, multiculturalism and diversity, standards, linking theory to practice, and ethics and social justice. Through the use of a carefully designed pedagogical plan, the authors involve readers in the considerations and decision-making teachers undergo on a day-to-day basis and stimulate prospective teachers to consider their own future and begin to develop their own professional plan. The result is a book that shares an honest overview of teachers and their work, and inspires prospective teachers to remember that if children represent the future of the world then teachers do indeed touch the future.
