    About the Authors
    • Understanding Sociological Theory for Educational Practices introduces readers to the contemporary classroom through the lens of sociological theory. By compelling readers to think critically and reflexively this book helps future teachers create a welcoming and equitable learning environment for all students. This edition has been updated to include the latest research and resources, including links to the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (APST) to help readers connect the theory with their practice. Learning is supported through pedagogical features including key terms, case studies, end-of-chapter reflection questions and recommended resources. A new companion website features a curated suite of reading materials, extension questions and links to online resources. Understanding Sociological Theory for Educational Practices is an essential resource that enables teachers to confidently navigate the topics of diversity, disadvantage, discrimination and marginalisation in a range of educational contexts.
