This study guide has been revised to give practical guidance on the new standards for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and updated in line with the latest special needs Code of Practice and recent legislation. It is a firm base for student teachers on all types of initial teacher education courses - PGCE, BA (QTS), BEd and modular - and for those returning to primary teaching after a career break. It also serves as a 'refresher course' for experienced teachers, especially those transferring to primary teaching from other phases of education. Sufficiently rooted in practicalities to bridge the notorious theory/practice divide, the book is challenging and inspiring. Its friendly, supportive and interactive style enables the reader to take control of the learning process and there are planning sheets, pro formas and reminders to develop effective classroom practice. Each chapter provides its own learning objectives, followed by information, insights, activities and references to other sources of information and guidance. Overall, the Guide is an excellent starting point for those who wish to become good teachers of primary school children.
