Series: Progress in Education
BISAC: EDU000000

This volume contains nine chapters that detail progress in education. Chapter One discusses reframing the pedagogy. Chapter Two examines the vital role that school leaders have in influencing student accomplishment while examining the many facets of principal leadership and how they affect academic results. Chapter Three explores the contribution of a new route into teaching that offers prospective teachers the opportunity to train to teach part-time or via an employment-based route. Chapter Four inspects effective teaching methods for behavioural economics, an interdisciplinary field that integrates insights from psychology, sociology, neuroscience, and economics. Chapter Five discusses cooperative learning and its relation to transactive communication in education. Chapter Six examines the perceptions of school administrators (principals and assistant principals) and teachers regarding the management of parental involvement. Chapter Seven aims to shed light on parental involvement while describing situations from teachers’ work and drawing conclusions about the processes that teachers, pupils, and parents underwent during the pandemic. Chapter Eight ascribes the person-environmental theory to better understand and evaluate the likely challenges and benefits of integrating technology as a pedagogy within the South African higher education framework. Lastly, Chapter Nine addresses the extent to which poverty influenced the English I End-of-Course exam performance of Emergent Bilingual students.
