This book supports trainee teachers with their written assignments.  It helps students to approach their academic writing with confidence, to fully demonstrate what they know and to 'ace' assignments!

It explains:

1.  The value and purpose of assignments - making the writing process easier and more effective from the start

2.  How to read and write academically - with practical, ‘how to’ support 

3.  How to respond to marking and feedback to improve your grades - developing your academic identity and your knowledge and performance for teaching

Teacher training is challenging.  Balancing teaching with academic work is hard work.  This book is here to help.

A very user friendly book. which was not too heavy for the students and they are able to dip into different sections easily

This is a great book that justifies why student teachers need to write assignments and how they should go about doing so. It really fills a gap for my students. The book is aimed at primary teachers but is still useful for other age groups including PCET.
