The book starts by exploring who the Intermediate and Senior Phase learner is – physically, socially, emotionally and cognitively – and then focuses on the skills of reading and viewing, writing, and speaking and listening.

The day-to-day complexities of teaching in South African classrooms are particularly challenging for novice teachers. Although equipped with knowledge and competencies from their years of study, often there is a gap between what few teachers know and how to apply that knowledge in a ‘real’ classroom. Practical Guidelines for Novice Teachers bridges some of these theory–practice gaps and aims at providing teachers with skills to remain motivated, professional and successful during their first years in the classroom. The authors are experienced teachers, who take the readers through the various critical aspects of teaching, giving practical advice based on their own classroom experiences. They tackle a wide range of aspects, including African perspectives on teaching, looking after your finances as a teacher, and dealing with sensitive curriculum topics.
The book includes the traditional foci of philosophy, sociology, psychology, and teaching and learning, and emphasises how these foci influence the practice of teaching. Classic theories, that informed and continue to inform teacher education, have dominated the engagement within education but this book shifts focus to current research and innovative theories that have evolved to promote teaching and learning in a challenging and complex educational context. Hence, this book makes a deliberate attempt to map out influential classical theories that have informed the study of Education as a backdrop to explore how contemporary theories are currently influencing teaching and learning.
