bookposted on 2017-12-06, 00:00 authored by E Hatton
"Teachers have a substantial effect on the nature of children's learning and schooling experience. Understanding Teaching 2/e is unique in bringing together the perspectives of curriculum theorists and social foundation theorists. It emphasises that teaching is a complex social, ethical and political activity that influences life choices and is therefore concerned with social justice. The focus of Understanding Teaching 2/e is to provide a better understanding of teaching on the part of the beginning teacher through consideration of both curriculum and social issues and to provide critiques to improve practice. Understanding Teaching 2/e is in three parts covering respectively teaching, curriculum and social issues. Each chapter includes readings linked to that chapter. Readings develop and extend the arguments of the various chapters. It is a valuable text for Australian and New Zealand teacher education students and for teachers who want to provide worthwhile learning experiences for all their students."--Cover.
