Draws on individual case studies and up to date research to explains how teacher educators can equip beginning teachers to learn much more effectively in school.
International trends in initial teacher education (ITE) and induction increasingly emphasise the importance of school-based learning for beginning teachers, and recent policy shifts have given many more schools a leading role in ITE. This book focuses directly on what has been learned from within well-established partnerships about the nature of beginning teachers' learning in schools and explores the ways in which teacher educators - both those that are school-based and those in universities who work in partnership with them - can most effectively support that learning.
Beginning Teaching is part of the successful Critical Guides for Teacher Educators series edited by Ian Menter.
