Description

The Teacher in American Society: A Critical Anthology examines the nature of the teaching profession in the United States and the purpose behind the work of primary and secondary teachers. It does so through reading from a wide range of historical, sociological, and literary sources. The anthology references films and other sources in popular culture, such as cartoons, as a means of understanding not only the work and experience of teachers, but the perception of them in American society.
