This volume looks at the role of the teacher in the classroom, the dilemmas they face, what it means to be a professional in this context and the wider professional role of the teacher in secondary schools and colleges. Case studies are used to introduce the main context, linked to enquiry tasks which address: meanings of professionalism and their implications; professional approaches to teaching; power and relationships; inter-professional and inter-institutional issues.
