This book is a concise social history of teaching from the colonial period to the present. By revealing the words of teachers themselves, it brings their stories to life. Synthesizing decades of research on teaching, it places important topics such as discipline in the classroom, technology, and cultural diversity within historical perspective.

"This is an accessible and informative narrative, laced with the unique perspective of pioneering teachers. Those preparing for teaching careers at all levels will profit from this book, its thorough bibliography, and several informative appendixes." -"History, Summer 2001 "This is an accessible and informative narrative, laced with the unique perspective of pioneering teachers.
