At the beginning of each semester in Australian universities, students entering teacher education courses are asked {u2018}Why do you want to teach?{u2019} The answers vary, but the most prominent response is {u2018}To make a difference{u2019}. Building on the market-leading success of the first two editions, Teaching: Making a Difference, Third edition, has been designed to launch students on their journey to become the kind of teacher who continually strives to deliver quality learning outcomes in all aspects of professional endeavour. Making a real difference in tomorrow{u2019}s early childhood, primary and secondary classrooms is as much about understanding learning and learners as it is about understanding what makes a quality teacher and quality teaching. The unique four-part pedagogical structure of this series consistently provides students with a compass to navigate recent changes to the Australian Curriculum and practical strategies for the meaningful use of ICTs in the classroom.
