The Professional Practice of Teaching contains a wealth of information that pre-service teachers need to know in order to learn to teach effectively. Written specifically for the New Zealand setting, it highlights the range of knowledge and skills that teachers require in order to make a positive difference to their students lives. Every chapter in this fourth edition has been updated to include the latest evidence on best practice, and discussion of current and emerging issues that are impacting upon teachers and their work, such as new policies in curriculum and national standards and the registration of teachers. Throughout the text many case studies, activities and stories from real-life teachers and students help readers to link the theory to their classroom practices. Suitable for beginning teachers in early childhood, primary and secondary, this book will be an invaluable reference throughout your studies and into your teaching career.
