Learning to Teach in the Early Years Classroom helps teacher education students understand the complexities of teaching in early years' classrooms. It integrates research and theory with practice through vignettes, based on authentic classroom case studies, in order to show students how educators make decisions and achieve expected outcomes. Students are further encouraged to examine teaching practices through the experiences of Sam Davis, an imagined teacher of Prep/Grade 1, in the Junior Primary team at Aubrey Primary School. Engaging and analytical the book gives voice to the many stakeholders involved in a child's development: from principles to teachers; from families and children of diverse backgrounds to pre-service teachers on field placement.
