    "I recommend this very well researched book to both trainee teachers and seasoned practitioners, like me, without hesitation. Its hands on approach and implicit focus on the development of a professional identity make this a key ‘go-to’ reference source for serious educators."  Colin Wynne, Maricourt Catholic High School
