If the status and quality of science education in schools is to improve, efforts need to be made to better understand the classroom practices of effective science teachers. Teachers are key players in a re-imagining of science education. This book explores how two primary school teachers, identified as effective practitioners, approached science teaching and learning over a unit of work. In recording the teaching and learning experiences in their classrooms, the author highlights how the two teachers adopted different approaches, drawing on their particular beliefs and knowledge, to support student learning in science in ways that were appropriate to their contexts as well as reflected their different experiences, strengths and backgrounds. Through sharing their stories, this book illustrates, that due to the complex nature of teaching and learning, there is no one way of defining effectiveness. In documenting this research, it is hoped that other teachers and teacher educators will be inspired to think about primary school science education in innovative ways.

Teachers of Chinese as a foreign language in many international contexts are searching for pedagogic solutions to promote effective learning. Models of innovative and successful approaches are urgently needed. This volume presents a collection of compelling and empirically rich research studies that showcases innovative developments in the practice of teaching Chinese as a foreign language. The studies focus on three interrelated areas: learners, teachers, and applications of new technologies. Specifically, the studies explore methods for fostering learner-centred classrooms, autonomous learners, intercultural learning, the role of teacher views and identities, the nature of a ‘middle ground’ approach, and technologies that accommodate the unique aspects of the Chinese language, with new options for mobile and interactive learners. Providing both inspiration and practical models for language practitioners and researchers, it offers a vital resource for teachers’ professional development, and for pre-service teacher education.

This book, PRE-PRIMARY EDUCATION IN NIGERIA: METHODS FOR EFFECTIVE TEACHING AND LEARNING, adopts an integrated approach to understanding and teaching pre-primary school children. Though not so common in Nigeria, this approach is practiced in countries around the world and it yields the highest dividends and most sustained gains for children, their families and communities. The early childhood curriculum guidelines which address all the critical areas of early childhood care, such as we have in Nigeria, may be better implemented by using the integrated approach. In the introduction the book highlights some specific areas prescribed by the 2005 National Policy for Integrated Early Childhood Development (IECD) in Nigeria. These include: (a) Curriculum Innovations (b) Facilitating Innovations in curriculum, teaching and learning activities and hobbies (c) Specific roles and functions of education which include ensuring compliance and innovations in minimum standards and prescriptions, especially as they relate to IECD curriculum development programs and activities. [See Chapter 1] To achieve these prescriptions and other objectives, the book presents different ways of learning by pre-school children through play way methods using many activities from different themes with examples and illustrations. It shows how these themes and goals are achieved using the integrated approach and through play and creativity in the classroom. It shows how the classroom is innovatively and creatively organized and arranged with different learning and interest centres to facilitate learning and the achievement of the stated objectives. In summary, the book is designed to provide the teacher of young children a practical and result-oriented avenue for implementing the best quality education at this level, based on any available curriculum guide and more. The book includes detailed discussions on various methods and procedures for teaching various topic areas for pre-school learning. It emphasizes the play way method as opposed to lecture method or talk-and-chalk way of teaching, which is not suitable for young children. Play and its uses and various components are highlighted. The book illustrates how the use of learning and interest centres helps children enjoy learning and develop as total individuals and how this makes them become the best they can be and develop interest and love for school and learning.

Creative Learning in the Primary School uses ethnographic research to consider the main features of creative teaching and learning within the context of contemporary policy reforms. In particular, the authors are interested in the clash between two oppositional discourses - creativity and performativity - and how they are resolved in creative teacher practice. The book complements previous work by these authors on creative teaching by giving more consideration to creative learning. The first section of the book explores the nature of creative teaching and learning by examining four key features: relevance, control, ownership and innovation. The authors devote a chapter to each of these aspects, outlining their properties and illustrating them with a wide range of examples, mainly from recent practice in primary schools. The second section presents some instructive examples of schools promoting creative learning, and how creative primary schools have responded to the policy reforms of recent years. The chapters focus specifically on: how pupils act as a powerful resource for creative learning for each other and for their teachers; how teachers have appropriated the reforms to enhance their creativity; and how one school has moved over a period of ten years from heavy constraint to high creativity. The blend of analysis, case-study material and implications for practice will make this book attractive to primary teachers, school managers, policy makers, teacher educators and researchers.
