Sachs, Judyth – Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, 2016

Hsieh, Betina – Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, 2015

Yayli, Demet – Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, 2012
Since the language used by people has the potential to signal a membership in a discourse community, it is significant that prospective teachers speak the appropriate social language to be able to claim a strong membership in the community of teachers.

Lunenberg, Mieke; Korthagen, Fred – Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, 2009
In this contribution, we discuss what it means to be a professional teacher with practical wisdom, and how practical wisdom is related to theory and experience. These questions are especially relevant as nowadays, in many countries, teacher education becomes more school-based. Building on theories on the functioning of the human mind in general,…

Gunel, Murat – Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, 2008
