Letseka, Moeketsi – Democracy & Education, 2017

Francis, Dennis – Gender and Education, 2014
In this article I explore two questions -- how does, Thatho, a transgendered life orientation teacher enact, resist and reproduce dominant understandings of gender and sexuality in terms of his own identity and practice; and what specific possibilities, challenges and resistances exist for a transgender educator in the rural. Using life-history…

Brodie, Karin; Sanni, Rasheed – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2014
Much of the work on teacher knowledge suggests that content knowledge shapes pedagogical content knowledge, and in fact is primary in the relationship between the two forms of knowledge. In this paper we challenge this view, arguing from a situated perspective on knowledge and learning, that pedagogical content knowledge strongly shapes content…
