Description

Education studies: History, Sociology, Philosophy addresses the study of education and its foundations. It is the first textbook in South Africa that introduces education students to the scholarly fields of education. The approach is consistent with recommendations in the Policy for the Minimum Requirements for Teacher Education and covers the following modules within Education Studies courses:

History of Education
Comparative Education
Sociology of Education
Philosophy of Education
Diversity and pedagogy

Education Studies adopts a scaffolded learning approach to guide and support students while developing their conceptual framework. It contextualises knowledge for students, explaining the relevance of South African history, sociological issues, and philosophy to understanding current South African society and the school system.
