Fortunately, teaching practices help shape the learning experiences and increase motivation and achievement for students. In addition, it has been revealed that when teachers collaborate well together they also tend to work better with students. This new informative publication clearly identifies and arranges profiles in relation to two connected areas of professional teacher practices: classroom teaching practices and participation in professional learning communities.

This practical book enables a more comprehensive understanding of teaching practice and participation in professional learning communities nationally and internationally. It provides policy makers and other key stakeholders with the relevant information they need for educational system monitoring.


Profiles of Teachers' Professional Practices

Chapter 4 provides country-specific results for classroom teaching practices. Specifically, scales are developed and compared for structuring activities, student orientation and enhanced activities. At the teacher level, some relevant variables are the level of education, participation in professional development, gender, subject matter taught, and beliefs about teaching and learning. At the school level, variables include school size, average hours of work, autonomy in curriculum and in hiring, parents’ educational level, administrative and academic leadership style and percentage of teachers reporting appraisal for innovative teaching.
