Education for Sustainability in Primary Curriculum
Education for Sustainability in Primary Curriculum
As young children will become the next generation of adults, it is vital that they are educated about sustainability issues, so they can be critically aware of the problems our society faces and take positive action to help preserve their future in a rapidly changing world. While teachers are generally concerned about sustainability issues, perceived constraints of current curriculum priorities commonly inhibit Education for Sustainability from being developed in many classrooms. This text addresses this dilemma by showing how Education for Sustainability can be developed within and across all areas of the primary curriculum in Australian and New Zealand contexts. The book provides suitable approaches and examples of activities to support teachers so that they can address the State and National requirements for teaching all the primary curriculum learning areas, while also addressing Education for Sustainability to promote knowledge of, positive attitudes towards and suitable action for, sustainability in relevant, meaningful, enjoyable and creative ways. They also support relevant state and national policies.

Teaching Primary School Mathematics
Teaching Primary School Mathematics
"It's like looking at the stars," says one child describing their thoughts about one million. "Oh hika! Wow!" exclaims a teacher excitedly about her students' probability thinking. This book is full of exciting and engaging snapshots of excellent classroom practice relevant to The New Zealand Curriculum and national mathematics standards. There are many fascinating examples of investigative learning experiences, and key research - and practice-based ideas about teaching, learning, and assessing mathematics and statistics. Topics are grouped into two sections. The first focuses on the teaching of mathematical and statistical content including: learning to count; handling numbers; thinking multiplicatively, developing understanding of fractions and decimals, algebra, measurement, geometry, statistical literacy, and probability.
The second focuses on pedagogical content knowledge including: developing understanding of our learners; investigative teaching; developing mathematical inquiry and argumentation; teaching in kura kaupapa Maori; developing mathematical and statistical ideas and literature; using technology; integrating the key competencies; and teaching gifted and talented children. The book is structured to give opportunities for thinking beyond the text through the inclusion of focus questions and points to ponder. Classroom-ready activities in each chapter help link theory and practice. It is a valuable resource for those working in initial teacher education, a marvellous toolkit for new graduates, has a place in every primary school and should quickly become dog-eared.
