This account tracks the return to teaching of John Loughran, a teacher educator and educational researcher. After years of educating student teachers, he went back into the classroom for a year to practice what he himself had been teaching, but was often met with difficult pupil behaviour and unforeseen problems.

Split into three sections, this book covers:

* a teacher’s perspective on teaching

* the students’ perspective on teaching and learning

* learning from experience – the implications for teaching and learning.

Using Loughran’s extensive teaching experience, this book describes how the classroom situations were played out and lessons to be learned.
