The Debates in Subject Teaching Series builds on the successful Routledge Issues in Teaching Series. It highlights the key issues, concepts and debates teachers of secondary school subjects will have to address throughout their chosen profession. Written for all student and practising teachers – and especially useful for those studying at Masters level – each book in the series encourages you to consider and reflect on issues relevant to your subject in order to reach your own informed judgements.
The Debates series supports teachers to consider issues in depth and link research and evidence to what you have observed in the classroom. Each book presents in one place up-to-date, comprehensive coverage of the most important debates shaping your subject, providing a rich resource to enable development of a deeper understanding of teaching and learning.
