For Philosophy of Education courses.It's an often-asked question: "How do I use educational philosophy in my classroom teaching?" This text is a comprehensive answer. To clearly establish the applicability of philosophy to classroom teaching, this text presents the basics of philosophy; examines all of the major educational philosophies-idealism, realism, pragmatism, existentialism, and post-modernism-and their main proponents; and provides students with a thorough knowledge of each philosophy's fundamental discourse around education. To this theoretical framework are then added real scenarios from real classrooms that demonstrate just how these erudite explorations translate into actual, in-front-of-the-children teaching.
