520    This book documents the "brave new world" of teacher, 
       administrator, school, and student accountability that has
       swept across the United States in recent years. Its 
       particular vantage point is the perspective of dozens of 
       new teachers trying to make their way through their first 
       months and years working in schools in the New York City 
       metropolitan area. The issues they grapple with are not, 
       however, unique to this context, but common problems found
       today in urban, suburban, and rural schools across the 
       United States. The stories in this book offer a compelling
       portrait of these teachers' encounters with the new 
       culture of accountability and the strategies they develop 
       for coping, even succeeding, within such demanding 
       settings. Learning to Teach in an Age of Accountability: 
       *introduces research on teaching and engages the "big 
       ideas" concerning teacher research, highlighting what we 
       know and where that leads us; *offers a rich set of 
       teacher narratives that are organized to widen the angle 
       of vision from biography, to classrooms, schools, and 
       society; and *includes questions and activities to 
       encourage discussion and further research about the ideas 
       raised; and *addresses the possibilities for best practice
       and curricular decision making in light of the issues and 
       ideas presented in the book. This volume--unique in its 
       portrayal of new teachers' encounters with issues of 
       accountability--makes a singular contribution to the 
       educational literature on new teachers. It is relevant to 
       everyone interested in the contemporary world of teaching,
       and is particularly appropriate as a text for preservice 
       and in-service students. All readers who believe that the 
       key to a good school lies in attracting and keeping good 
       teachers will find the issues presented here both 
       personally engaging and deeply troubling
