It integrates research and theory with practice through authentic classroom case studies, in order to show students how educators make decisions and achieve expected outcomes.

Key Features Links theory to practice through classroom-based case studies Helps teacher education students see how their role in a child's development fits into that of the broader community through learning devices such as 'Zooming In and Zooming Out' Encourages learning of teaching methods, tools, and procedures for thinking about and doing teaching through the experiences of fictional case study Sam Davis, and Aubrey Primary School Challenges students to reflect critically on certain ideas or practices, how they might think or act differently, and why.
