Praise for the previous edition:
"A small number of education books feel indispensable; this is warmly welcomed to the club. It's a magnificent survey of what educational research can tell us about nitty-gritty classroom issues." - Geoff Barton, Times Educational Supplement, Friday Magazine
This new edition updates the successful 2005 edition with the latest research on effective teaching and learning. Appropriate for primary and secondary education, the authors continue to provide a broad and comprehensive overview of what is now a large body of knowledge on effective teaching.
The authors maintain their user-friendly style and the structure which takes in generic teaching skills; teaching for specific goals; subject specific strategies and other classroom issues. Each chapter is built around opening learning objectives.
New to the Third Edition:
- Offers updated research evidence
- Provides a greater cultural breadth including international research
- Presents diversity in the classroom; beliefs, values and behaviors
- Covers 'assessment for learning' and 'personalizing learning'
- Addresses cross-curricular teaching
End of chapter questions and an extensive reference list have also been included to encourage readers to become reflective practitioners.
This book is essential reading for education students as well as teachers and educational researchers.
