Sharpes' approach synthesizes historical, philosophical, and cultural perspectives. ADVANCED EDUCATIONAL FOUNDATIONS FOR TEACHERS couples practical teaching applications with theoretical approaches while emphasizing diversity and other multicultural issues. It also covers the history of schooling from ancient times to the present, including biographies of major non-Western figures as well as the cannon of educational innovators This book follows the development of math and science among the Greeks, through its turbulent history during the Renaissance and Enlightenment, to contemporary controversies. Sharpes focuses on the central figures in the history of education and explores their influential roles, beginning with Confucius and Socrates and advancing to Mann and Dewey. This unique study links current multicultural and postmodern perspectives with detailed histories of the educational tradition. ~ Back cover of the book.
