About this Book

Foundations of Education was created as a broad introduction to the teacher education program at SUNY Oneonta. The faculty of SUNY Oneonta designed this book with the intention to give an overview of topics that would be returned to throughout the student’s preparatory program. The authors strove to create a reader-friendly overview that would be used as the basis for classroom discussion as they welcomed future educators and asked them to reflect on what kind of teacher they will be.
