Teaching Strategies: For Quality Teaching And Learning is a practical guide to quality teaching and learning in South African schools. The book provides an introduction to the principles of effective teaching and learning, with special reference to how these principles can be applied within the framework of South Africa’s National Curriculum Statement Grades R–12.

It gives detailed guidelines for using nine broad teaching strategies that have proven to be effective across all phases of school. The final chapter introduces the principles of quality assessment, and links these to the National Protocol for Assessment Grades R–12.

This book is particularly useful for teacher education students, both as a text for their theoretical studies and as a reference during their practice teaching placements and later teaching careers.

Essential reading for matriculants, first year university and college students – and their parents!

Your First Year Of Varsity talks directly to Grade 12 learners and first year university and college students who arrive at their place of higher education filled with hopes, expectations, fears and dreams; yet with little understanding of what this new world means and how to adapt, grow – and graduate.

The book addresses all the rules, demands, behaviours, skills and cultural shifts that will turn an undergraduate into a viable part of higher education life. Foster and Mofokeng have written the book in plain English and it is accessible to anyone who can read a magazine or newspaper. An empathetic, no-nonsense and practical guide to understanding the cultural and academic divide between high school and college or university.

Students Must Rise - Youth Struggle In South Africa Before And Beyond Soweto '76 (Paperback): Anne Heffernan, Noor... Students Must Rise - Youth Struggle In South Africa Before And Beyond Soweto '76 (Paperback)

The Soweto Student Uprising of 1976 was a decisive moment in the struggle against apartheid. It marked the expansion of political activism to a new generation of young activists, but beyond that it inscribed the role that young people of subsequent generations could play in their country's future.

Since that momentous time, students have held a special place in the collective imaginary of South African history. Drawing on research and writing by leading scholars and prominent activists, Students Must Rise takes Soweto '76 as its pivot point, but looks at student and youth activism in South Africa more broadly by considering what happened before and beyond the Soweto moment. Early chapters assess the impact of the anti-pass campaigns of the 1950s, of political ideologies like Black Consciousness as well as of religion and culture in fostering political consciousness and organisation among youth and students in townships and rural areas. Later chapters explore the wide-reaching impact of June 16th itself for student organisation over the next two decades across the country. Two final chapters consider contemporary student-based political movements, including #RhodesMustFall and #FeesMustFall, and historically root these in the long and rich tradition of student activism in South Africa.

2016 marks the 40th anniversary of the 1976 June 16th uprisings. This book rethinks the conventional narrative of youth and student activism in South Africa by placing that most famous of moments - the 1976 students' uprising in Soweto - in a deeper historical and geographic context.

Over 60 million children of primary-school age, mostly in Africa and Asia, are not in school. More then 250 million are in school but are not experiencing meaningful learning.

In South Africa, school is compulsory for children aged seven to 15, where they are expected to learn core skills – reading, writing and arithmetic – and improve their chances of future employment. But for some, schools are places of persistent failure, of humiliation, of boredom and lack of progress.

Finding Place and Keeping Pace: Exploring meaningful and equitable learning in South African schools is about getting access to and completing a full cycle of good-quality basic education. The contributors span a range of methodologies that include policy analysis, classroom observation and learner assessment, bringing together a rich set of studies that explore a pattern of exclusion from meaningful learning by South African schoolchildren. In particular, they look at schoolchildren who attend school regularly, but are not learning due to inadequate facilities, indifferent teachers and socio-economic factors. They are at risk of either dropping out or leaving school with limited resources.

Within the country, access to schooling remains uneven across and within provinces, and between different communities, with poverty, race and location being major factors. Physical access is just the first hurdle – once through the school gates it is expected that children will be provided with knowledge and values that will allow them to function in the economic and social life of the country. However, this is not the general case – children may be at school but without accessing education.

The authors identify several patterns of exclusion, including different forms of marginalisation, age-inappropriate enrolments, and the fact that school choice, voice and quality remain restricted. They also make policy recommendations, which include improving the quality of teachers and teaching, enhancing parental and community involvement, and clarifying the Language-in-Education policy.

At a time of robust public contestation about higher education in South Africa, At the Foot of the Volcano focuses on the personal journeys of university lecturers as ordinary people. The lecturers, based predominantly at the University of Cape Town, share a passion for inspiring South Africa's next generation of scientists, health care workers, social scientists, poets, essayists, musicians, urban planners, anthropologists and chemists. Too often Information and Communication Technology is offered as the panacea for course content in uncertain times. At the Foot of the Volcano suggests that no amount of technological innovation can stand in the place of building relationships with students, finding ways to instil passion for our disciplines, and an awareness of the sources of structural inequality that underpin the current political climate across higher institutions.

Quality assessment in South African schools is a comprehensive title which provides a balanced view of assessment in terms of the policy statement on assessment for South African schools. Assessment has been a buzzword in education for decades, creating many uncertainties in the teaching environment. One of the principal aims of school teachers is to guide children's learning, evaluate learning programmes and activities, and judge learners' level of achievement. Quality assessment in South African schools provides teachers with a comprehensive explanation of recommended learner assessment guidelines and principles that will help them design and implement sound, meaningful learner assessment strategies. In turn, these strategies will advance the goals of school curricula and the disciplinary objectives of educational institutions.

Research by the Education Endowment Foundation has confirmed that developing metacognition (supporting pupils to think about and develop themselves as learners) is a strategy with high and proven impact. From Snakes and Ladders to Countdown Conundrums, this book provides 50 games to get children playing with and being comfortable around words by encouraging them to independently think and talk about their writing and reading choices. Igniting Children's Writing is the perfect resource for any teacher looking to develop literacy skills across the curriculum, and help their pupils gain confidence in reading, writing, thinking, spelling and talking. These 50 activities are not only extremely effective for Reading SATs preparation, but they are also fun, creative and can be easily adapted by teachers. Each game has been tried and tested by author Mark McCaughan, who is currently supporting schools where performance was low in the Reading SATs, and using the activities to great effect. This book also includes links to additional resources to be accessed via download.

An unapologetic critique of major flaws in the American education system. David Michael Slater's We're Doing It Wrong is a thought-provoking dissection of the issues plaguing American public schools. Each chapter identifies a major problem in the education system, exploring its roots and repercussions. A teacher himself, Slater opens up and gives readers an insider's perspective on topics that have been at the center of ongoing debates as well as recent hot button issues, such as: Standardized testing Teacher evaluation practices Helicopter parents Class size Poverty's effect on performance Anti-bullying programs Writing proficiency Curriculum goals Slater explains why our current approaches simply aren't working-for students, for teachers, for the colleges that these students may eventually attend, and for society at-large. Unafraid to ruffle a few feathers, We're Doing It Wrong highlights defects in policy and theory, calls out administration, and questions long-held beliefs. Every chapter concludes with a suggestion for improvement, offering light at the end of the tunnel. Administrators, teachers, and concerned parents will come away with a better understanding of the current state of education and ideas for moving toward progress-for themselves and for the students they support.

Everybody knows that South Africa has an education crisis, despite the fact that the government spends the biggest slice of its budget on education, more than any other African country. And yet the crisis persists.

Jonathan Jansen and Molly Blank looked at South African schools that work, in spite of adverse conditions – schools in poor communities, schools with overcrowded classrooms, schools in both rural and urban environments – and have drawn out the practical strategies that make them successful.

19 short films (included on DVD) let you visit these schools and understand in the words of their principals, teachers and learners what makes them succeed. Then take look at the 10 key strategies identified and see how to implement them in other schools to effect transformation. As we have come to expect from Jansen, there are no complicated theories, no difficult to implement solutions – just lots of common sense!

An inspiring account of ordinary teachers who are doing extraordinary things that could transform education What School Could Be offers an inspiring vision of what our teachers and students can accomplish if trusted with the challenge of developing the skills and ways of thinking needed to thrive in a world of dizzying technological change. Innovation expert Ted Dintersmith took an unprecedented trip across America, visiting all fifty states in a single school year. He originally set out to raise awareness about the urgent need to reimagine education to prepare students for a world marked by innovation--but America's teachers one-upped him. All across the country, he met teachers in ordinary settings doing extraordinary things, creating innovative classrooms where children learn deeply and joyously as they gain purpose, agency, essential skillsets and mindsets, and real knowledge. Together, these new ways of teaching and learning offer a vision of what school could be-and a model for transforming schools throughout the United States and beyond. Better yet, teachers and parents don't have to wait for the revolution to come from above. They can readily implement small changes that can make a big difference. America's clock is ticking. Our archaic model of education trains our kids for a world that no longer exists, and accelerating advances in technology are eliminating millions of jobs. But the trailblazing of many American educators gives us reasons for hope. Capturing bold ideas from teachers and classrooms across America, What School Could Be provides a realistic and profoundly optimistic roadmap for creating cultures of innovation and real learning in all our schools.
