This new edition updates the successful 2005 edition with the latest research on effective teaching and learning. Appropriate for primary and secondary, the authors continue to provide a broad and comprehensive overview of what is now a large body of knowledge on effective teaching.

The authors maintain their user-friendly style and the structure which takes in generic teaching skills; teaching for specific goals; subject specific strategies and other classroom issues. New to this edition:

- updated research evidence

- a greater cultural breadth including international research

- diversity in the classroom; values and beliefs

- assessment for learning

Points for reflection and further reading have also been included to help encourage readers to become reflective practitioners.

This book is essential reading for education students, including all PGCE and BA courses, as well as teachers and educational researchers.

Daniel Muijs is Professor of Education at University of Southampton.

David Reynolds is Professor of Education at University of Plymouth.
