Theories into Practice
briefly outlines the major thrust of each group and what it might look like in practice. Some major theorists are then focused on in turn. Discussion starter topics follow each theorist and questions for reflection that relate more to thinking about the main concepts in relation to practice are included.
The downloadable file Challenging Aspects of Practice (CAP) provides a tool to help educators identify and consider the theoretical perspectives that act to shape their practice. This tool relates to the NQS: Quality Area 1. It is designed to stimulating thinking and conversation at the individual and centre level to assist in understanding the interplay between theory and practice.
