This book retraces a part of this educational history regarding the placement of Greek teachers in Western Australia. Everything is carefully and methodologically documented by the author. Semi-structured interviews with a great number of stakeholders (teachers, parents, etc.) are also used to provide first-hand information, followed by a systematic analysis. The great strength of the book is a much bigger, more comprehensive framework in which the particular theme is examined; a microcosmic analysis within a macrocosmic landscape. Through this book, we learn a great deal about Greek settlement in Western Australia, about language and second language acquisition, and relevant theories, about the development of the Greek scheme regarding the secondment of teachers from Greece; all of which is supported by extended literature reviews and comprehensive conclusions.

Cross cultural teaching and learning for home and international studentsmaps and discusses the increasing internationalisation of teaching and learning at universities around the world. This new phenomenon brings both opportunities and challenges, as it introduces what can be radically different teaching, learning and assessment contexts for both students and staff. This book moves beyond the rhetoric of internationalisation to examine some of the more complex issues for practitioners, researchers, students and those working in transnational or non-Anglophone contexts. It recognises that although universities around the world enthusiastically espouse internationalisation as part of their mission, there is currently little information available about carrying out this vision in terms of pedagogy and curriculum at a practical level. This book fills that gap comprehensively, organising its information around four main themes: New ways of teaching, learning and assessing: Challenges and opportunities for teaching practice, student engagement and participation, assessment and supervision of learning. New ways of designing and delivering curriculum: Internationalising the curriculum for all students within ‘home’ and ‘abroad’ contexts. New ways of thinking and acting: Developing the global citizen, intercultural learning and respectful dialogue, responding to student diversity and equity, enhancing graduate employability and future life trajectories. New ways of listening: Discovering and responding to new or unfamiliar voices among students and staff, embracing ‘other’ academic and intellectual traditions. Illustrated by a wide range of examples from around the world, this book brings together contemporary work and thinking in the areas of cross cultural teaching and internationalisation of the curriculum.

How similar are the roles of parent and teacher? Is it true that the experience of parenthood imparts skills and understanding which make that parent a better teacher? In this fascinating and personal book, Pat Sikes explores the effect of parenthood on teachers. A large number of teachers are interviewed at length, and their responses show that parenthood affects their professional lives as deeply as it does their emotional lives. The author discusses the effect of parenthood on the ambitions and career prospects of teachers, and uncovers interesting differences between the views of some women and some men. The book also touches on the issue of the two distinct teaching styles still prevalent in the education system: the 'maternal' method, predominant in primary schools, and the more authoritarian style often used with older children. Parents Who Teach is a frank, fresh and thought-provoking study of an area of education that is relevant to a great many teachers.
Presents new ways of thinking about parental involvement in the teaching of reading and writing aimed at both researchers and practitioners. It relates the recent growth of involvement to broader considerations of the nature of literacy and historical exclusion of parents from the curriculum.
