Teaching in America: A Cross-Cultural Guide for International Teachers

Dr. Charles Hutchison, University of North Carolina at Charlotte, has published a new book entitled Teaching in America, A Cross-Cultural Guide for International Teachers and Their Employers (Springer Publishers, The Netherlands, 2005). Dr. Hutchison’s book grew out of his doctoral research study as well as his 9 years of teaching in American schools as an international teacher himself. Born and raised in Ghana, Dr. Hutchison talks about his own experience making the transition from teaching in Ghana to America. He then tells the stories of three other “international” teachers, how they made the transition to teaching in American schools. I think you will find this to be a very revealing and important book on education.
