Teaching in a Nutshell
Designed to help student teachers develop an approach to teaching that is both theoretical and practical, this text focuses on key aspects of teaching rather than trying to "cover the waterfront." Based on extensive research on teachers’ views, their own long experience as teacher educators, and other sources, the authors recommend 7 priorities for teaching and teacher education: program planning; pupil assessment; classroom organization and community; inclusive education; subject content and pedagogy; professional identity; a vision for teaching. Each chapter deals in turn with one of these priorities, using a common format. Activities throughout help readers understand what the priority means in both theory and practice.
