Summary ""Preparing Change Agents for the Classroom: From Paradigm to Practice" is for teacher educators who want to address the need for classroom teachers who know how students learn and how to teach to support this learning. The practical applications of constructivist teaching and true-life "Turning Points" included in this book can be used to provide the knowledge, skills, and dispositions that candidates need to cultivate their own learning in the college/university classroom, and in turn, foster the learning of their future students"-- Provided by publisher.
