Book Description

Understanding Learning and Teaching in Secondary Schools has been specifically researched, written and developed to inform, support and guide anyone training to become a secondary teacher today.

The authors introduce and explore key ideas and issues in an accessible, highly readable way, inviting you to reflect on your own practice and challenge both your own and others’ thinking.

Each chapter includes:

Stop and reflect questions and practical tasks

Case studies to link theory to classroom practice

Critical synthesis and links to further research for M-level study

Challenge your thinking sections to encourage reflection and debate.
