This pedagogical resource has been developed to support the use of the College casebook, Cases for Teacher Development: Preparing for the Classroom, within teacher education. The 13 cases you will encounter in the casebook can become your curriculum to initiate study and research into the ethical standards and the standards of practice. Our hope is that the cases as curriculum and pedagogical tools will facilitate deeper awareness, understanding and integration of the standards within your daily practice.
