This is an invaluable tool for anyone carrying out a research project. We all learn to do research by actually doing it, but a great deal of time and effort can be wasted and goodwill dissipated by inadequate preparation. This book provides beginner researchers with the tools to do the job, to help them avoid some of the pitfalls and time-wasting false trails, and to establish good research habits.
This second edition of "The Excellence of Play" encapsulates all the many changes that have taken place in early childhood in the last ten years. Whilst retaining its original message of the vital importance of play as a tool for learning and teaching for children and practitioners, it consolidates this further with current evidence from research and practice and links the most effective practice with the implementation of recent policies.
A Guide to Teaching Practice is the major standard text for all students on initial teacher training courses in the UK. Authoritative yet accessible, it covers the important basic skills and issues that students need to consider during their practice, such as planning, classroom organization, behaviour management and assessment.
How can you become an effective primary school teacher? What do you need to be able to do? What do you need to know? Flexible, effective and creative primary school teachers require subject knowledge, an understanding of their pupils and how they learn, a range of strategies for managing behaviour and organising environments for learning, and the ability to respond to dynamic classroom situations.
Drawing on case studies from primary classrooms, this book analyzes how teachers use formative assessment to promote learning. Themes addressed include feedback; power and roles of learners and teachers; self-assessment and peer assessment; and sharing success criteria with learners. The book equips teachers, student teachers, educators, and researchers with a sophisticated grasp of issues in formative assessment and how they relate to the promotion of pupil learning.
Building on best-selling texts over three decades, this thoroughly revised new edition is essential reading for both primary and secondary school teachers in training and in practice, supporting both initial school-based training and extended career-long professionalism.
In this unique collection, the social capital - relationships and networks - of children and young people, and in one case parents and teachers, is explored in a wide range of formal and informal settings.
