Both pre-service and in-service teachers are sure to learn strategies for developing the reinforcing elements of IDM, from planning inquiries to communicating conclusions and taking informed action. The curricular and pedagogical examples included make this practical book essential reading for researchers, students of pre-service and in-service methods courses, and professional development programs.

R492 Discovery Miles 4 920 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

International trends in initial teacher education (ITE) and induction increasingly emphasise the importance of school-based learning for beginning teachers, and recent policy shifts have given many more schools a leading role in ITE.

Beginning Teaching is part of the successful Critical Guides for Teacher Educators series edited by Ian Menter.

Chris McRae, Aubrey Huber

This book uses the metaphors of practice spaces and practice sessions to demonstrate the connection between creative and performance practices, and critical pedagogy. It offers a conceptual framework for using performance and creative practices as starting points for developing philosophies and practices of teaching that are grounded in aesthetic, creative, and critical approaches to education. The practice sessions for pedagogy presented include a range of creative endeavours, such as performance workshops, musical routines, crafting practices, and writing. By focusing on the critical function of creative practices, the book emphasizes the ways creativity can reveal the relationship between everyday acts, and social and cultural ideologies and structures. Creative practices also present the opportunity for imagining new, more socially just and inclusive, configurations of these relationships. This book is designed for teachers and students interested in critical pedagogy, performance, and creative educational practices.

Putting Learning Before Technology! - The Possibilities and Limits of Digitalization (Paperback): Klaus Zierer Putting Learning Before Technology! - The Possibilities and Limits of Digitalization (Paperback)
Klaus Zierer
R632 Discovery Miles 6 320 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

For many, digitalization is the key to revolutionizing education. But what do we know about its impact on the learning process? What benefits are on offer and what are the risks? What are the consequences for educational interventions? Putting Learning Before Technology! discusses these questions and more in a thorough exploration of the use of technology in educational settings. Central to the author's argument is that digitalization as a sole and structural measure will bring little benefit and that the teachers who bring lessons to life are much more important. Features of the book include: evidence from Visible Learning research to scientifically frame the effectiveness and pitfalls of technology in the classroom; real-life classroom examples; graphics to clearly illustrate key concepts and studies. This book is a fascinating analysis of the impact, possibilities, and limits of the use of technology within education, and will appeal to teachers and teacher-trainers in any setting or country.

It covers, in detail, the theory of character education as well as advice and guidance about how this should be applied in practice in primary schools." Professor James Arthur, University of Birmingham Character matters. As more and more schools are choosing to teach Character Education, trainee and beginning teachers need to know more.

The text also looks at character beyond the classroom, how parents and the wider community can be included in the teaching of character and how outdoor learning and education can contribute.

R921 Discovery Miles 9 210 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

The principles of democracy, freedom, and the rights of individuals are taught from textbooks, but the principles of autocracy and dictatorship are still practiced in most schools and homes. It is no wonder our children feel unsettled, defiant, and even outright rebellious. Many of our young people are growing up ignorant of, and uncommitted to, the great principles upon which our nation was founded. The way to make children committed to our democratic way of life is to make them full participants in it. This new guide is provided to assist educators and parents in making our schools and homes models of democracy, giving our kids the freedom of choice, and bestowing on them the basic rights of citizenship. Parents and educators must unite as democratic leaders to guide, coach, and stimulate our young people to assume responsibility for themselves. The future of our nation may depend on it!

The chapters also analyze the connection of agency to other relevant topics, such as teacher identity, emotions, positioning and autonomy.
