For pre-service teachers at three levels of education - early childhood, primary and secondary. Learning to teach is a difficult and complex activity. It is a process that requires pre-service teachers to chart uniquely personal pathways to becoming effective teachers, pathways that are littered with complex and demanding challenges that vary across time, place and person. This book offers pre-service teachers a novel way of addressing those challenges. It reveals what pre-service teachers need to do to transform their preconceived notions about teaching, acquired during twelve years as students in schools, into the practical theories that guide the classroom teaching of highly effective practitioners. It presents examples of the knowledge and theories of actual teachers, both pre-service and in-service; activities for explicating, reviewing and re-building knowledge and theories; and research-based guidelines to effect change while learning to teach. This book will contribute to making the task of learning to teach much more comprehensible to prospective teachers, while empowering students to take a more significant role in their own professional development.
