Teaching Challenges and Dilemmas highlights the complexities of teaching and learning and the daily challenges that teachers must recognise and unravel during the course of their work. It actively works with readers to help them develop the competencies needed to become outstanding teachers: communication, understanding pedagogy, assessment of learning and curriculum, lesson planning, classroom management, reflective practice and comprehending learner diversity. Grounded in strong theoretical foundations, it draws upon research to assist readers in identifying the different strategies that are available to them and the ways in which these might be enacted in practice. Engaging case studies and rich examples emphasise the importance of context and assist readers to connect theory to the classroom as they explore issues. To keep pace with the dynamic environment in which school education is conducted, chapters reflect recent changes in national curriculum, national testing and national standards for teaching, enabling readers to understand the impact of these Commonwealth frameworks. This highly regarded text remains an invaluable resource for pre-service and newly qualified teachers as they embark on their challenging career.
