    First published in 1998. The research, practice and staff development activities in this book have come out of the Improving the Quality of Education for All project (IQEA), which emphases the importance of enhancing internal conditions in schools by building upon existing good practice. Materials developed to promote school-level conditions have already been described in a companion volume- Creating Conditions for School Improvement. It is, however, necessary to modify the conditions with the classroom, as well as those at the level of the school, if school improvement strategies are to have their full impact on student achievement. This book articulates a complimentary set of 'classroom conditions;, and gives INSET providers the activity materials to implement them.

    Creating the conditions for classroom improvement; improving the quality of education for all; authentic relationships; boundaries and expectations; planning resources and preparation; teacher's repertoire; curriculum development; reflection on teaching and learning; the journey of classroom improvement; an invitation.
