This series for PGCE students provides a new concept in textbooks. The books start by recognizing student teachers as subject specialists and so focus on how these students can turn their specialist degree-level knowledge into school-level knowledge for their pupils. Each title combines this approach with coverage of the training standards and the inductions standards and guidance for best practice.
Clearly written and thought-provoking, each chapter opens and closes with ‘orientation questions’ and ‘for further thinking’ respectively. Lists of further reading are also included together with the addresses of useful websites, and ‘case-in-point’ examples are used to illustrate practical applications.
The Teaching School Subjects 11-19 series provides stimulating assistance by helping students find ways of thinking about their specialism, how to teach with it and how to engage with what pupils learn through it.
