The International Handbook of Research on Teachers and Teaching provides a fresh look at the ever changing nature of the teaching profession throughout the world. This collection of over 70 original articles addresses a wide range of issues that are relevant for understanding the present educational climate in which the accountability of teachers and the standardized testing of students have become dominant.

The international collection of authors brings to the handbook a breadth of knowledge and experience about the teaching profession and a wealth of material across a number of comparative dimensions, such as between developed and developing countries and between Eastern and Western cultures. In addition, many articles address the emerging challenges to education and to the lives of teachers which are brought about by the globalization trends of the 21st Century.
The handbook is divided into two volumes, and focuses on the following general topic areas:

Theory and Research on Teachers

Becoming a Teacher

Characteristics of Teachers

Teacher Behaviors

Teacher Life Cycles

Theories of Teaching and Learning

Teaching in Classrooms

Teaching Specific Student Populations

The Teaching of Individual Subjects

Great Debates about Teachers and Teaching

The handbook is written for students and researchers in the fields of education, the social sciences and the behavioral sciences. In addition, it is a valuable resource for policy-makers who want knowledge and insights based on the latest research findings. Many author recommendations are relevant for the development of educational reform policies in both developed and developing societies.
