This is a book that deals with the important issues that teachers need to confront when planning for their students’ learning over time. Not only does it offer suggestions for effective medium term planning (which are carefully exemplified through authentic cases) but also deals with some fundamental questions about the nature of teaching, learning and assessment and the need to approach each of these in a principled way.
Not only does this text offer suggestions for effective medium term planning (which are carefully exemplified through authentic cases) but it also deals with some fundamental questions about the nature of teaching, learning and assessment and the need to approach each of these in a principled way. This will clearly be a very useful book for beginning teachers.
This is a highly relevant and accessible book. There is no ‘quick fix’ when designing deep learning but this book provides a well thought through rationale and a clear a guide to that journey. Working through it empowers the teacher. It makes complete sense and will certainly feature as essential reading for my students.
Clear steps to aid trainees involved in planning
The book includes several already well-known pedagogical solutions and learning situations and ways. The interesting point is that they have been connected together and presented from a somewhat different approach than before. This is the main reason why I am going to recommend the book as a supplemental collection about the essential learning theories and pedagogical solutions for teacher students to become ' learner-sensitive' teachers. I see the right time for the book is at the end of the teacher studies.
The structure of this book makes it easily navigated. However, I have adopted it only as a supplementary text, not a recommended one because it does not make sufficient obvious distinction between phases. My student treachers are interested in primary or early-years planning, and they would need to investigate tis book quite thoroughly before discovering which section might inform their interest. The content of the book is good and valid, but primary education is not mentioned in the contents nor in the index.
Not what I expected. Not really accessible enough for the students I had in mind. I wanted something really practical and advisory to support their development. This wasn't it.
Relevant and accessible. A well structured and easy to read planning book. Covers all the information you need in a well laid out and comprehensive structure.
