|Title:||Preparing Pre-service Teachers for Rural Appointments||Contributor(s):||Jenkins, Kathy A (author); Cornish, Linley (author)||Publication Date:||2015||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/18094||Abstract:||Pre-service teachers need to be prepared to teach in both rural and urban contexts. Preparation to teach multi-grade classes in rural schools is excellent preparation for teaching any class, including urban single-grade classes. Based on our previous research and experience, we designed a unit to prepare our pre-service teachers for the issues they may face in their employment and especially in rural schools, including multi-grade teaching, coping with isolation, working as a casual teacher, and communicating with parents and caregivers. There are significant issues that are distinct in rural and urban contexts, including how metrocentric departmental policies can emphasise the rural/urban divide.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Australian and International Journal of Rural Education, 25(2), p. 14-27||Publisher:||SPERA: Society for the Provision of Education in Rural Australia||Place of Publication:||Wembley, Australia||ISSN:||1839-7387||Field of Research (FOR):||139999 Education not elsewhere classified||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 203
