What makes Corwin books essential resources for your education courses?

This page is for faculty in North America, Central America and South America. For all other regions except Australia please click here. Requestors in Australia please click here.

Our books do more than simply summarize existing knowledge. Although Corwin books are based on theory, research, and/or practical experience, they discuss the implications of that theory, research,or experience for universal practice. Our books draw on real-world examples and practices to illustrate points, offering practical, hands-on advice to educators who want to be successful in their careers. These substantive, yet user-friendly works make them ideal for use as supplements in Teacher Education, Educational Administration, and Special Education courses.

Corwin specializes in peer-reviewed expert resources in all areas of K-12 education including school leadership, professional development, teacher induction, assessment and evaluation, curriculum development, teaching and learning styles, and exceptional students.
