Preparing Teachers to Educate Whole Students offers a wide-ranging comparative account of how innovative professional development programs in a number of countries guide and support teachers in their efforts to promote cognitive and socio-emotional growth in their students. The book focuses on holistic educational outcomes in an effort to better serve students in the twenty-first century and examines seven programs in all--in Chile, China, Colombia, India, Mexico, the United States, and Singapore.

Fernando M. Reimers, Connie K. Chung, and their contributors focus on a pair of issues of great significance to educators throughout the world: the need to identify and promote a full range of competencies in students as they prepare for work and life in the twenty-first century, and the need to create and enhance professional development programs for teachers that will help them cultivate these competencies in their students. Preparing Teachers to Educate Whole Students offers a unique and helpful contribution to our understanding of fundamental educational goals and the professional development programs for teachers that aim to further those goals.
Fernando M. Reimers is the Ford Foundation Professor of the Practice of International Education and director of the Global Education Innovation Initiative and of the International Education Policy Master's Program at Harvard University. Connie K. Chung is a researcher and former high school English teacher who works with education organizations that are focused on ensuring young people can thrive in a rapidly changing world.
