Description - Developing Teachers by Christopher Day
Effective schools or improving schools are fashionable terms in the rhetoric of recent education movements, yet the heart of these movements is often more to do with teaching quality than with school practice. Even so, these movements often offer little in terms of increased knowledge for teachers' learning or preparation for change. This book takes an holistic view of teacher development, examining the contexts and conditions of teaching: school leadership and culture; teachers' lives and histories; change; teacher learning, competence and expertise; and the moral purposes of teaching. Chris Day looks at the conditions under which teacher development may be enhanced, and brings together research and other information, from the UK and overseas, to demonstrate those conditions.
