Child Development in Educational Settings

Child Development in Educational Settings

Edited by Patrick Griffin, University of Melbourne

Marilyn Fleer, Monash University

Grounded in contemporary, evidence-based research, the second edition of Assessment for Teaching provides a comprehensive introduction to assessment and teaching in primary and secondary school settings. Taking a practical approach to assessment and the collaborative use of data in the classroom, this text advances a developmental model of assessment which aims to improve student outcomes through targeted teaching interventions. Thoroughly revised and updated to include the latest research, this edition features expanded content on collaborative teaching, competence assessment, learning and assessment and self-regulated teaching and learning. Each chapter features learning objectives, reflective questions, an extended exercise to link course content with classroom practice, and end-of-chapter rubrics which help readers assess their own understanding and learning. Written by a team of experts from the Assessment Research Centre at the University of Melbourne, Assessment for Teaching is an essential resource for both preservice teachers and inservice teachers.

Child Development in Educational Settings provides a comprehensive introduction to traditional and contemporary theories of development and learning in the contexts of early childhood and primary education. The book features four major case studies, which are revisited throughout, to examine how learning and development can be re-imagined within socially, culturally and linguistically diverse communities. This approach enables readers to use theories to analyse and measure learning and development in planning and curriculum, and to feel empowered to enact change in their educational settings.

Educational Foundations

Mariane Hedegaard, University of Copenhagen Marilyn Fleer, Monash University

Brian W. Dotts, University of Georgia

Explores the dynamics in children’s everyday lives as they move between school and the family, with particular consideration of how children’s motives change in response to new challenges. The authors follow four children, from Australia and Denmark, over a twelve-month period. Using these case studies, they show how children’s everyday activities, play, and the demands they meet in both family and educational contexts influence their learning development.

This educational foundations book offers a comprehensive overview of American education history and a variety of classical, Enlightenment, and contemporary educational philosophers. While Educational Foundations includes a history of American education, it also looks at numerous policies, constitutional law cases, events, and political, religious, and social conflicts for students to consider while learning their subject matter.

Nurturing Creativity in the Classroom Second Edition

Applied Linguistics and Primary School Teaching Second Edition

Ronald Beghetto, University of Connecticut James Kaufman, University of Connecticut

Edited by Sue Ellis, University of Strathclyde Elspeth McCartney, University of Strathclyde

As interest in creativity explodes, it has become more complicated to decide how to best nurture creativity in our schools. There are the controversial Common Core Standards in many states. Meanwhile, the classroom has become increasingly digital; it is easier to access information, communicate ideas, and learn from people across the world. Many countries now include cultivating creativity as a national educational policy recommendation, yet there is still debate over best practices.

This text illustrates how applied linguistics knowledge informs literacy policy, curriculum and pedagogy in primary schools. It will help class teachers, learning support staff, speech and language therapists, educational psychologists and literacy researchers to analyse children’s requirements, literacy provision and ensure efficient language and literacy learning.

Contents Part I. Voices from the Field: 1. Changing the subject. 2. Creativity and the invention. 3. Creativity and shifting roles of an educational leader: a reflection of what creativity used to mean to me what it now means. 4. What I used to think about creativity in schools. Part II. Voices from the Research: 5. Developing creativity across all areas of the curriculum. 6. Accountability, the Common Core, and creativity. 7. Ever-broadening conceptions of creativity in the classroom. 8. Creativity in mathematics teaching: a Chinese perspective (an update). 9. Roads not taken, new roads to take. 10. The five core attitudes and seven I’s of the creative process. 11. Please teacher, don’t kill my kid’s creativity: creativity embedded into K-12 teacher preparation and beyond. 12. Attitude change as the precursor to creativity enhancement. 13. Nurturing creativity in the engineering classroom. 14. Intrinsic motivation and creativity in the classroom: have we come full circle? 15. Learning for creativity. 16. Creativity and prosocial values: nurturing cooperation within the classroom. 17. How social-emotional imagination facilitates deep learning and creativity in the classroom. 18. Four faces of creativity at school. 19. Teaching for creativity.

Spelling It Out How Words Work and How to Teach Them Misty Adoniou, University of Canberra Spelling can be a source of anxiety for school children and working professionals alike. Yet the spelling of words in English is not as random or chaotic as it is often perceived to be; rather, it is a system based on both meaning and a fascinating linguistic history. Spelling It Out aims to ease anxiety and crush the myth that good spelling comes naturally. Good spelling comes from good teaching. Based on Misty Adoniou's extensive research into spelling learning and instruction, this book encourages children and adults to nurture a curiosity about words, discover their history and, in so doing, understand the logic behind the way they are spelled.

Becoming a Teacher of Language and Literacy Edited by Brenton Doecke, Deakin University Glenn Auld, Deakin University Muriel Wells, Deakin University Becoming a Teacher of Language and Literacy explores what it means to be a literacy educator in the 21st century.

Big Fish, Little Fish Teaching and learning in the middle years

Nicola Yelland, Victoria University Carmel Diezmann, Australian Catholic University Deborah Butler, St Margaret’s Anglican Girls School

Edited by Susan Groundwater-Smith, University of Sydney Nicole Mockler, University of Newcastle

Early Mathematical Explorations shows readers how to provide young children with rich mathematical learning environments and experiences. This book presents teachers with a sound theoretical framework to encourage children to become numerate in the twenty-first century. It is an essential resource for pre- and inservice teachers alike. It shows that mathematical learning can occur in a variety of ways, including when children explore ideas through play, problem solving and problem posing; engage in a rich variety of multimodal learning experiences; pursue self-directed activities and cooperate with others; and make connections between ideas and experiences in their everyday worlds.

Big Fish, Little Fish: Teaching and learning in the middle years provides pre-service and early career teachers with a pathway to understanding the needs of students as they make the important transition from primary to secondary schooling. Drawing on the wide-ranging expertise of its contributors, this book prepares preservice teachers to best meet the needs of students as they enter the challenging middle years of their education.

Teaching and Digital Technologies Big Issues and Critical Questions

Teaching and Digital Technologies helps both preservice and in-service teachers to critically question and evaluate the reasons for using digital technology in the classroom.
