Editors: Christine M. Rubie-Davies and Catherine Rawlinson (The Univ. of Auckland)
Book Description:
This book is designed to stimulate and challenge thinking about pedagogy and learning. The book includes recent research but is also strongly practitioner-based, i.e. all chapters and sections show how the findings might be implemented into classrooms. It comprises a collection of research papers and brief reports related to teaching and learning.
It includes articles that cover all levels of schooling: early childhood, elementary, middle school, secondary and tertiary as well as articles that have direct relevance for teacher education and teacher professional development, including reports that use sociological or psychological frameworks.
