K 12 Classroom Teaching Excerpt :

This is the eBook of the printed book and may not include any media, website access codes, or print supplements that may come packaged with the bound book. K-12 Classroom Teaching: A Primer for New Professionals is the perfect text for a foundations or general methods text where the basic knowledge, skills, and dispositions required for classroom success are addressed. It presents core content such as planning, instruction, assessment, management and discipline in clear, reader-friendly language. Readers appreciate its illustrative anecdotes and practical suggestions. The Primer is solidly grounded in the newest research (with hundreds of new citations) and well versed in the demands of classrooms today. This edition is grounded by a conception of inclusive and responsive instruction: a conception that places students and families at the center of each educational decision and includes them all as critical partners in the educational endeavor. The inclusive and responsive approach requires teachers to continue their learning—about themselves as a starting point—in order to gain the dispositions and skills necessary to push each student toward high standards through authentic relationships and through careful planning, management, and active instruction. This edition also focuses sharply on the demands of the 21st Century and prepares teachers to meet those demands by developing in themselves and their students competencies such as critical, creative, and systems thinking, collaborative skills, and Information and Communication Technology literacy.

Becoming a teacher Excerpt :

This book disseminates original research on learning in and from practice in pre-service teacher education. Authors such as Lederman and Lederman describe the student teaching practicum (or work-integrated learning [WIL]), which is an essential component of pre-service teacher education, as the ‘elephant in the room’. These authors note that 'the capstone experience in any teacher education programme is the student teaching practicum… [a]fter all, this is where the rubber hits the road'. However, many teacher educators will agree that this WIL component is sometimes very insufficient in assisting the student teacher to develop their own footing and voice as a teacher. This is the ‘gap’ that this research book addresses. Most of the chapters in the book report empirical data, with the exception of two chapters that can be categorized as systematic reviews. WIL is addressed from various angles in the chapters. Chapter 6 focuses on research related to what makes Finnish teacher education so effective, and in Chapter 4 researchers of the University of Johannesburg disseminate their findings on establishing a teaching school (based on Finnish insights) in Johannesburg. Chapter 3 highlights the challenges faced in open-and distance learning teacher education contexts. Several of the chapters disseminate research findings on alternative interventions to classic WIL, namely, where “safe spaces” or laboratories are created for student teachers to learn and grow professionally. These could either be simulations, such as software programmes and avatars in the intervention described in Chapter 2; student excursions, as the findings in chapters 5, 7 and 10 portray; or alternative approaches to WIL (e.g. Chapters 11 and 12). The book is devoted to scholarship in the field of pre-service teacher education. The target audience is scholars working in the fields of pre-service teacher education, work-integrated learning, and self-directed learning. The book makes a uniq
