Teaching, of all subject matter and age groups, is a rewarding yet demanding career. The requirements of teachers are constantly changing and teachers need to continually adapt their knowledge and practice to fit schools’ changing demographics. Having a toolbox of research based best practices to draw upon may support the early career teacher as they move from theory to practical application when the learning curve is the steepest. Strengthening the system of support includes increasing teachers’ influence over their day-to-day work and developing positive and supportive cultures of learning.

This edited work is a collection of research chapters which provide insights for teachers who have just entered the profession of teaching and for those teachers who need a refresher on research-based teaching practices. The purpose of this edited book is to present both theory and practice to support conceptual understanding of educational praxis for common areas with which early career educators may require additional expertise or support. This book is intended to be a valuable contribution to the body of literature in the field of education.

The target audience of this book will be composed of all stakeholders interested in supporting early career K-12 teachers. Stakeholders include, but are not limited to, early career teachers of all subject-areas and grade levels, school administrators, teacher mentors and guides, education faculty in higher education, educational researchers, curriculum developers, instructional facilitators, practicing teachers, pre-service teachers, professional development coordinators, and those professionals working in teacher preparation programs.
