*Provides a unified theory of teaching as a profession
*Opens up interesting new directions for researchers and teacher trainers.
This lack of an agreed theory of teaching is one of the most important and yet intractable problems facing education. This book proposes a new integrated model of teaching, derived from aspects of the professional discipline of teaching. The resulting multi-dimensional model will challenge and stimulate education researchers and teacher trainers, as well as those with an interest in the constitution of professional discipline.
