Supporting Primary Teaching and Learning

By Fiona Hall, Duncan Hindmarch, Doug Hoy, Lynn Machin, Douglas Hoy

This book is aimed toward all those who are studying the UK's Foundation Degrees in supporting primary and early years teaching and learning, particularly those working at levels 4 and 5. It is written in an accessible style with a focus on work-based professional development and encourages critical reflection throughout. The book starts with a discussion of reflective practice and includes helpful guidance on developing effective study skills. Each chapter then focuses on a key topic in education, learning, and development; considers any relevant policies and legislation; examines educational theories in relation to professional practice; and provides concise UK case studies to contextualize the learning. The book provides up-to-date and relevant material on supporting the new national curriculum, safeguarding, special educational needs and inclusion issues, and schools as organizations. It also covers the competencies for Higher Level Teaching Assistants. *** Librarians: ebook available on ProQuest and EBSCO (Series: Teaching Assistants) [Subject: Education]
