The book Becoming a STEM Teacher: a Crash Course for People Entering the Profession”, is grounded into the TeachOlogical philosophy of teaching (the book is based on some of the postings listed below). For SED students this book provides a good addition to a standard textbook.

TeachOlogy is a practical philosophy of teaching and learning (Russian philosopher Sergei Gessen, 1887 - 1950, called education an “applied philosophy”; more at http://www.rus-ameeduforum.com/content/en/?task=art&article=1000964&iid=15).

A confirmation of good teaching.
