Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Classroom Teaching: An Introduction provides both prospective and practicing educators with a provocative examination of some of the most practical concerns of teaching. Topics include classroom management, effective and creative teaching methods, classroom violence, motivation, legal issues of teaching, technology, diversity, and parental involvement in their children's educational progress. Throughout this volume, special attention is given to respect for the profession and to the capacity for self-direction among educators. Both practical and visionary, Classroom Teaching: An Introduction examines the challenges of today's classroom new and exciting ways and engages teachers with questions involving educational purpose, curriculum development, contemporary educational politics, the various contexts in which schooling takes place, and the conceptual frameworks on which teachers can ground their teaching. This is a smart book on the nature of teaching and how to do it well. There is no other book like it.
