Type of paper: Refereed paper

This paper explores the relation between two areas of primary pre-service teacher education: the curriculum and social contexts units. While I draw on data collected from course evaluations and from my own experience in teacher eduction, as well as setting these within the context of teacher education reports, the focus centres on developing effective connections between these two areas of teacher education, and subsequently between schools and their community, and between theory and practice.
