Introduction to Education with VitalSource

Sharp, Hudson, Weatherby-Fell, Charteris, Brown

Introduction to Education provides pre-service teachers with an overview of the context, craft and practice of teaching in Australian schools as they commence the journey from learner to classroom teacher. Each chapter poses questions about the nature of teaching students, and guides readers though the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers. Incorporating recent research and theoretical literature, Introduction to Education presents a critical consideration of the professional, policy and curriculum contexts of teaching in Australia. The book covers theoretical topics in chapters addressing assessment, planning, safe learning environments, and working with colleagues, families, carers and communities. More practical chapters discuss professional experience and building a career after graduation. Rigorous in conception and practical in scope, Introduction to Education welcomes new educators to the theory and practical elements of teaching, learning, and professional practice.

Includes the voices of experienced teachers, pre-service teachers and students to foster reflective practice skills

Uses extracts from policy, theoretical and research literature, with accompanying questions to support the development of academic and professional literacy

Presents authentic classroom examples of planning and implementation that build familiarity with best practice and strategies for differentiation, inclusion and engagement
