Additional Book Details

'This new edition helps the reader better understand their role in the school and classroom, in the complex and constantly changing world of education. It provides excellent support for helping the reader develop greater effectiveness in their classroom practice, both through exploring the theory that underpins the topics covered and by providing practical support and advice' - Gianna Knowles, Co-ordinator for the Foundation Degree in Teaching and Learning Support and Primary Senior Lecturer in Education, University of Chichester



If you're studying for a Foundation Degree or seeking Higher Level Teaching Assistant (HLTA) status, this is the book you need on your shelf. Containing guidance for students and Teaching Assistants (TAs) on working with colleagues, supporting pupils and supporting learning, this fully revised edition has been expanded to include five new chapters on:



- distributed Leadership for the TA/HLTA;


- behaviour management;


- inclusion (linking with the Every Child Matters agenda);


- supporting emotional health and well-being;


- supporting curriculum subjects.



In addition to these new chapters, the book will help you to understand and participate in change, enhance the role of the TA, and use ICT to support learning. Packed with practical activities, case studies and links to the new HLTA standards, this essential text will develop your professional capabilities and help you put theory into practice.
