Abstract:

"In this book, education's venerable iconoclast, Seymour B. Sarason, examines the opportunities, problems, and realities of the teaching profession as he guides prospective teachers through their career decision process." "Teaching is a demanding, complex profession, and many who choose to teach make their career choice without thinking about how well their own motives and expectations fit into the realities of life in a classroom. The more potential teachers know about the teaching profession - both what it is now and what it should and can be - the better equipped they'll be to take an active role in changing the system. Matching their style, needs, and goals to the obligations, responsibilities, and problems inherent in the job will not only give prospective teachers a better sense of what they're getting into, it will allow them to take responsibility for their professional choices and their personal and intellectual growth."--Jacket.
