The second edition of this popular text has been revised and updated to include the new Professional Standards needed to achieve Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). Tackling these elusive but fundamental aspects of children's development, this text places the importance of spiritual, moral, social and cultural understanding in a cross-curricular context. It directly links between children's attainment and the wider aspects of personal development, beliefs and values, explaining the environment in which learning flourishes and demonstrating how trainees can promote this in their teaching. In addition, it helps enrich the trainee teacher's experience, laying firm foundations for their continuing professional development.

This book concentrates on two central questions that arise from research on the influence of schools on the developing values of young people. The first concerns the kind of values that inform the life of our schools. The second concerns the values which schools are justified in conveying to their pupils. These two questions occupy the first two parts of the book. The first part provides a variety of perspectives on the values that underpin contemporary education and draws heavily on current research. The second part argues the case for making certain groups of values central to contemporary education. The chapters in this part will offer new insights which are both authoritative and challenging. The final part offers more practical guidance on how values may be most effectively incorporated into the activities of the schools.

This book sets out to explore the intersections between matters not frequently yoked in academic discussions: spirituality, social justice, and the learning of world languages. The contributing authors contend not only that these intersections exist, but that they are the site of issues and realities that require the attention of language educators and point to avenues of growth for the language teaching profession. The essays included seek to indicate the possibilities of a neglected area of inquiry, not only in terms of theory but also in terms of the practices of language education. Given this aim of opening up fresh questions, the book is arranged so as to show the relevance of the nexus of spirituality and social justice to teacher education (chapters 3 and 4), language classroom practices (chapters 5 and 6), and the theoretical sources that inform scholarly discussion of language education (chapters 7 and 8). The opening chapters place these explorations in a larger context by showing how they fit into existing social contexts and academic discussions.

THIS IS THE SERIES BLURB...LIST ALL BOOKS TOGETHER:Continuum Studies in Reflective Practice and Research is a new series of textbooks aimed at teaching students. As with Andrew Pollard's books, they use the idiom of reflective teaching. In other words, they avoids the two extreme views about learning to teach, namely that it is best done simply through acquiring practical "tricks of the trade" without any theory or that it is best done applying sytematized, objective theory. The distinctive feature of relective teaching is that it encourages practitioners to develop by continually inter-relating theory and research findings to their own practice, situation and style.These comprehensive textbooks provide an accessible guide to all those who are new to teaching in secondary schools. Covering all aspects of job, from planning through to teaching and assessment, the authors provide constructive, accessible and, above all, practical advice to help subject teachers become more effective in their work.
