Your Primary School-based Experience

A Guide to Outstanding Placements (Second Edition)

By Catriona Robinson, Branwen Bingle, Colin Howard

This book is an essential companion for primary trainee teachers, whatever their training route. It focuses on the school-based experience and provides both practical strategies and opportunities for reflection, so trainees are challenged to critically evaluate their learning in order to improve attainment and ultimately succeed while in their school settings. The book reflects current educational policy in the UK and embraces key national priority areas, including behavior, inclusion, and the teaching of phonics and early mathematics. Chapters look at professional partnerships, planning and assessment, employability, and, crucially, how to move from good to outstanding teaching. UK case studies enliven the text and present a range of perspectives for consideration, while critical questions will engage the reader and promote a deeper understanding of the text. This second edition has been fully revised throughout and, in particular, provides an increased focus on evidence-based practice and is referenced to the UK's latest national curriculum. *** Librarians: ebook available on ProQuest and EBSCO (Series: Critical Teaching) [Subject: Education]
