The Professional Practice of Teaching in New Zealand contains a wealth of information that pre-service teachers need to know in order to learn to teach effectively. Written specifically for the New Zealand setting, it highlights the range of knowledge and skills that teachers require in order to make a positive difference to their students’ lives. This new edition has been fully updated to exemplify the latest research and align with the current New Zealand context. New chapters on topics such as effective teaching in modern learning environments, Maori learners and diverse learners add new depth to the text and sit alongside a new introductory chapter that welcomes students to the profession of teaching in New Zealand. Throughout the text many case studies, activities and stories from real-life teachers and students help readers to link the theory to their classroom practices.
