Book summary

This text examines the nature of teaching in schools and, in particular, teaching from the perspective of the people doing it: the teachers. The authors seek to gain access to teachers' professional craft knowledge and to facilitate teachers' own articulation of the ordinary, everyday teaching which they do routinely and spontaneously in classrooms. Their emphasis throughout is on investigating "good teaching", on what goes well in the classroom. They are also concerned to identify how an understanding of the professional craft knowledge of teachers is particularly important for, and applicable to, the pre-service and in-service training of teachers, effective curriculum innovation, and teacher appraisal. They draw out the significant implications for policy and practice. [via]
