Additional Book Details

How do people become effective teachers?


This is the textbook students need to support them on this journey, no matter their training route or whether primary or early years in focus.


Through a unique pairing of academic research and teaching expertise, each chapter is collaboratively authored by an academic specialist and an experienced practitioner to provide a realistic and practical view of teaching children from years 3 - 11.



The book combines all the major topics, theories and research students need to know, along with up-to-date policy and legislation.  Inventive and practical learning aids and carefully crafted online resources will help readers to:


Understand: helpful learning aims at the beginning and summaries at the end of every chapter guide students through each topic


Apply: Spotlight on Practice features highlight real teaching examples, Putting it into Practice features provide advice on how key concepts can be employed in real life whilst classroom activities on the website provide further ideas for teaching


Reflect on key concepts, as well as your own practice and values, through the refection points and author podcasts on the website outlining key issues to stimulate critical thinking


Go further with informative annotated further reading at the end of every chapter, links to relevant websites integrated throughout, and carefully selected SAGE journal articles freely available on the website


This is an essential textbook for use across all your primary and early years teaching courses - whether students are training to be lower/upper primary school teachers or early years practitioners, including those on undergraduate or postgraduate teacher training courses and employment-based routes.
