The reception year, before a child starts formal schooling in Grade 1, is critical in a child's development. It is in the Grade R year that the teacher has a unique opportunity to enhance the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values that will shape the child's later academic success. A high-quality Grade R programme is therefore very important. Teaching Grade R promotes a participatory and child-centred approach to learning, based on the pedagogy of play that positions children as active learners and encourages teachers to become critically reflective practitioners. This pedagogy of play is explained in detail in the book, and suggestions and pointers are given as to how it can be used in the classroom to enhance learning.
Education is confronted with continual curriculum changes at all levels, from school to higher education. Teachers play an important role as key agents of curriculum change, and can contribute to the successful and dynamic development of curriculum if the
Realigning Teacher Training in the 21st Century is the product of extensive research that was conducted by UNISA academics in five provinces in South Africa. In this project, 500 primary schools were targeted and the research aimed to find out how Annual National Assessments were affecting the performance of the learners. In addition, the study explored the curriculum and its challenges in schools. The findings clearly indicated that these schools face many challenges and that there is a need to realign teacher training in South Africa so that teaching and learning address the issues uncovered by the research. This book addresses ways that this realignment can happen. Each chapter focuses on a particular aspect or challenge, relating to the subjects that were targeted in the research project. The chapters offer a theoretical approach, where appropriate, and focus on practical changes that can be implemented.
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.
What does it really take to become a brilliant teacher? As a supply teacher you will be faced with the unfamiliar. You may find yourself in a school that you have never been to before.

Faced with these challenges, prepare yourself for any eventuality with the help of Brilliant Supply Teacher. Through hints, tips and anecdotal advice Laurence French provides a practical guide to the day-to-day aspects of supply teaching to help make this important school role more enjoyable and fulfilling.

Die arbeidswetgewing wat betrekking het op die onderwysomgewing is omvattend en dek 'n groot verskeidenheid aspekte waarmee almal binne hierdie omgewing op een of ander stadium te doen kry. Waar daar in die verlede moontlik 'n vae begrip van veral wette en regulasies ten opsigte van diensvoorwaardes by meeste werknemers in die onderwys teenwoordig was, is dit nou onontbeerlik om 'n basiese begrip van alle relevante wetgewing en regulasies wat van toepassing is, te he. Veral onderwysers kan hulle in die spreekwoordelike mynveld bevind indien hulle nie seker maak dat hulle oor die basiese kennis van onderwysreg beskik nie. Dit word gestaaf deur die talle hofsake, dispute, mediasie, dissiplinere verhore en die dikwels onaangename implikasies daarvan vir indiwidue (en hul gesinne) wat voortspruit uit aanklagte teen oortreders in alle sektore van die onderwys. Wetswysigings na aanleiding van veranderde omstandighede binne die onderwys, lei tot die behoefte om voortdurend op die hoogte van die implikasies en toepassing daarvan te wees. Hierdie dringende behoefte geld nie alleen vir skoolhoofde nie, maar vir elkeen betrokke by onderwys. Aan die een kant berus die korrekte toepassing en implementering by die beheerliggaam en die hoof van 'n inrigting, maar aan die anderkant raak dit die mense wat daar werksaam is. Die skrywers van hierdie boek het nie alleen 'n deeglike besef van hierdie noodsaaklike behoefte nie, hulle spreek dit ook baie effektief aan deur middel van hulle uiters waardevolle ervaring. Hierdie ervaring spruit voort uit praktiese betrokkenheid by die onderwys asook deeglike navorsing op die terrein van onderwysreg. Kennis van al die aspekte wat in hierdie boek aangespreek word, verbeter ongetwyfeld die kwaliteit van die onderrig- en leerproses in die klaskamer - 'n broodnodige doelwit om na te streef. Dit skep ook 'n veiliger omgewing waarbinne elkeen funksioneer. Persoonlik is ek baie dankbaar vir die bydrae wat deur middel van hierdie handige handleiding gemaak word tot die uiteindelike kwaliteit van onderwys in Suid Afrika. Dr. Jopie Breed President: SAOU

Christine Ruane examines the issues of gender and class in the teaching profession of late imperial Russia, at a time when the vocation was becoming increasingly feminized in a zealously patriarchal society. Teaching was the first profession open to women in the 1870s, and by the end of the century almost half of all Russian teachers were female. Yet the notion that mothers had a natural affinity for teaching was paradoxically matched by formal and informal bans against married women in the classroom. Ruane reveals not only the patriarchal rationale but also how women teachers viewed their public roles and worked to reverse the marriage ban. Ruane's research and insightful analysis broadens our knowledge of an emerging professional class, especially newly educated and emancipated women, during Russia's transition to a more modern society.
Hierdie titel se basiese oogmerk is om die voorgraadse onderwysstudent toe te rus om met kundige gemak binne die raamwerk van die onderwysregtelike onderwyspraktyk te beweeg. Sodanige geborgenheidsruim vir die opvoeder dra weer onteenseglik by tot die daarstelling van 'n geborge onderrig-leeromgewing. Hierdie doelstellings word moontlik gemaak deurdat die leerinhoude van die titel studente in staat stel om die essensie van geborgenheid binne die onderwys te begryp en te analiseer; die toepaslike bepalings van die Grondwet te kan toepas in die onderwyspraktyk; onderwyswetgewing te kan uitle en toepas; en 'n billike arbeidsregtelike werksbedeling te kan verseker.
