A review of The Professional Practice of Teaching in New Zealand (6th edition)

Edited by Mary F. Hill & Martin Thrupp (Cengage)

This comprehensive textbook covers everything a training teacher might want to know about classroom practice and the New Zealand education system. I’d posit that even experienced teachers would find food for thought or ways to refresh their work. Every chapter has been revised and updated, and thoughtful new content includes “Creating cultures of belonging: engaging diversity to enhance learning”, “Becoming a teacher” and “Revealing the privatisation of education”. Each chapter includes rich case studies, views from students and teachers, and insightful questions and activities to help the reader engage with the content.
