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.

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.

Teaching and learning resources are all the materials, aids and equipment that teachers use to facilitate effective teaching and learning within their classrooms. Teaching resources should include a wide range of visual, auditory, audio-visual, text/graph-based, tactile or multimedia materials, such as posters, flashcards, storybooks, digital storybooks, videos, songs, puppets. They also include equipment such as white boards, laptops and projectors. Teaching and learning resources can assist learners throughout the learning process and make learning more memorable because visual and tactile experiences amplify long-term memory. Resource development: a practical guide for teachers is aimed at teachers in preschools and schools that use teaching and learning resources daily to enhance their classroom activities, as well as parents that need to assist their children with school projects.

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.

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

The author draws on research and his own extensive work experience in urban districts across the USA to present a convincing case for the pivotal role of high expectations in student achievement. All students are most likely to succeed when leaders, teachers, mentors, and parents communicate that they expect stellar results and then provide the instructional support that's needed to guarantee academic success. This is an excellent book. Based on the premise that when teachers expect the best from all pupils, they will achieve highly, the book uses vast personal experience and a broad research field to show that high expectations can have a transformational effect.

Christine Ruane
R797 Discovery Miles 7 970 Ships in 7 - 11 work days

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.

R504 Discovery Miles 5 040 Ships in 12 - 17 work days

A research-based, critical yet practical exploration of the benefits of using digital video in teacher education. Digital video is easy to use and student teachers find it incredibly helpful. Since Dwight Allen first used microteaching five decades ago, video has been recognised as an ideal medium for capturing the complex nature of teaching. Through its accurate and honest representation of reality it reveals both the cognitive and affective aspects of learning to teach. This book serves as a theory-related rationale and a practice-informed critical guide for teacher educators considering how best to use video within their programmes. It explores how video technology can be used to enrich learning in both higher education and school settings, enhancing the continuity of the learning experience. Using evidence-based examples of best practice and critical discussions relating theory and policy to practice, it encourages teacher educators to engage with the use of video technology and explore how it meets the needs of learners and the current requirements of initial teacher education.

This book presents a collection of research-based narratives exploring the learning of pre-service teachers and teacher educators in a range of international professional experience (IPE) settings. The narratives, based on over 20 years of IPE managed by an Australian faculty of education, capture the lessons learnt from the IPE program from a variety of perspectives, including academic staff, pre-service teachers and in-country partners. Four key themes emerge from the narratives: identity, learning through discomfort, collaboration and relationships. At a time when critics of teacher education are arguing for more predictable, standardised programs and practices, this book advocates for richly diverse, innovative programs that better prepare the next generation of educators for teaching in a multicultural, uncertain future.

This book examines contexts and possibilities in Aotearoa New Zealand education contexts arising from the international trend for open, flexible, innovative learning environments (ILE), specifically on the pedagogical load. The book responds to questions such as: What does it mean to teach, learn or lead in an innovative learning environment? What happens when teachers move form single cell learning spaces to open, collaborative ones? The chapters provide examples of how teaching in new spaces can be an exciting challenge for teachers and students where they try new ways of teaching and learning, and rethink the purposes of learning and the implications of societal change for learning and what is valued. Examples are drawn from pre-service teachers working in primary and secondary schools and in-service teachers learning to become professionals. The book offers insights into a variety of educational contexts where teachers and students learn and adapt to new learning spaces, and also how different teaching and learning partnerships may be conceived, and flourish. It focuses attention on a range of aspects that teachers, school leaders, and other educators, and researchers may find valuable when they embark on similar initiatives to consider issues pivotal to productive and effective innovative learning environment design, development and implementation.
