Book Description

Supporting Teaching and Learning brings together theoretical perspectives, practical educational ideas and current academic debates to help students develop their knowledge and understanding of core educational issues. It explores the professional relationships necessary for quality learning and encourages the reader to reflect critically on their values, beliefs and assumptions about learning and teaching.

Written by an author team from a range of educational backgrounds, the book focuses on the key issues that teaching teams face as they work together to support children and young people in their learning. Covering a broad range of topics, themes and age ranges, each chapter contains a statement of the author’s values and beliefs and concludes with discussion starters, ideas for reflecting on practice and a list of useful resources.

Chapters include:

  • The core subjects in the curriculum;
  • Information and Communications Technology,
  • Linguistic and cultural diversity;
  • Special educational needs;
  • Out-of-school learning;
  • Assessment;
  • Reflective practice and action research.

Accessible, discursive and thought provoking, this book is essential reading for students on a range of education courses including Foundation Degrees, Education Studies and those undertaking initial teacher training.
