The book begins by asking 'what are ethics and values?' and goes on to explore social diversity and society and education. It considers ethics and values and the curriculum, school organisation and the classroom. A chapter on ethics, values and the teacher encourages the reader to examine their own thoughts about education. Throughout, practical guidance runs alongside structured critical thinking exercises to help the reader and reflect on both theory and practice.
About the Series
Thinking Through Education is a new series of texts designed and written specifically for those education students entering the second or final phase of their degree course. Structured around sets of specific 'skills', each chapter uses critical thinking and reflective exercises to develop greater subject knowledge and critical awareness.
Accessible text that encourages students to think critically about various ethical issues that might be encountered in practice. Such texts are rare.
For a new citizenship and morality in education module, this book provides concrete examples and excellent analyses in the topic areas we want to cover.
It offers a fresh opportunity for those studying to become teachers to learn about the ethical and moral nature of their practice, which in England, is almost unheard of nowadays.
Thought provoking, sensitive choice of topics. This text will be used with Early Years Teachers to help their developing understanding of the ethical and values issues in Primary Education
This book was engaging in parts but it was, on occasions hard to access. It was a useful text to support the Religious Education element of the course.
An excellent text which helps take readers beyond tick-list approaches to ethics and diversity. The numerous critical thinking exercises provide opportunities to explore and challenge practice.
A valuable resource for undergraduate trainees. Examining how these elements underpin areas of professional practice is very worthwhile.
This will be an very valuable book for undergraduate students who are starting a new course on ethis and primary teaching. II am requesting copies for the library and will be referring to it throughout my inputs.
