Teach: Introduction to Education

Welcome to the SAGE edge site for Teach, Fourth Edition.

The SAGE edge site for Teach by Janice Koch offers a robust online environment you can access anytime, anywhere, and features an impressive array of free tools and resources to keep you on the cutting edge of your learning experience.



Teach is a concise introduction to education that challenges students’ preconceived notions of teaching in order to transform them into reflective practitioners. Empathizing with the difficulties students face as they move from the college classroom to their own classrooms, revered author Janice Koch invites readers to both reflect on their own dispositions for teaching and look outside of themselves to the demands of the profession, making the philosophy of teaching and learning accessible and relevant. The Fourth Edition emphasizes the changing student population and the role of technology and globalization in the field, while also including the Interstate Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium (InTASC) standards correlating with each chapter’s content. With the guidance of this supportive text, students will gain vital exposure by engaging with professional standards from the very start of their career.
