Hayes offers a book that weaves theory and practice together and allows student teachers to 'experiment' with the way in which they enthuse pupils in their care. The case study questions were interesting to consider (...and I think time in the cosy room for Jade would have given the opportunity to look for the deeper issues which caused the outburst - want to know more? Read the book!)
