November 2018 | Learning Matters
When learning to teach, practical experience in the classroom in essential as is learning from others and being able to reflect on your own learning and performance. Equally important is the ability to critically evaluate learning and teaching. In fact, in teacher training, the questions are just as important as the answers: What drives schools and what challenges them? What can we learn from other countries? Does curriculum really matter? How do teachers manage behaviour? How do I prove that my children are learning? What does mastery really look like? This new, extensive, core text from Learning Matters tackles these questions and more. It includes full coverage of the content of professional studies modules and goes beyond to support trainees on placements and in their learning on the course.
