Description

Prepare your students for a twenty-first century classroom.

Learning to Teach, third edition, offers a unique perspective by positioning the reader as a pre-service teacher embarking on their new career. The reader is introduced to three fictional pre-service teachers whose narratives flow throughout the text. These characters share how their personal and professional life experiences have exposed them to new ways of thinking about young people, teaching, and learning.

Using a fictional university teacher education program and primary school, this eBook explores how educators are working to transform their practices in like-minded communities for radically changing times. It examines current government initiatives and regulations while developing the reader’s ability to analyse scenarios, critically reflect on their own assumptions, and develop best teaching practices.

  • New university assignments and field placements undertaken by the three pre-service teachers
