Description - Teaching and Learning by Richard Fox
Drawing on educational and psychological research and adhering closely to QTS standards, trainee teachers will find this easy-to-read book an invaluable guide to child psychology and the psychology of teaching. The book starts by offering practical guidance on, and illustrative examples of, the full range of issues in the classroom: the repertoire of teaching, the main phases of learning, the classroom environment, keeping order, and planning lessons. The author then goes on to consider the main areas of research that have contributed to our understanding of learning, teaching and motivation. In the final section he extends the coverage to more complex topics, such as intelligence, special educational needs, bullying, child abuse, gender, ethnicity, teacher expectations and assessment, all the while writing with both common sense and sensitivity. Throughout the book, the author gives both national and international examples of practice across all four key stages and different school subjects. He also includes invaluable questions, exercises and transcripts of lessons to help readers engage with the text, and extensive cross-referencing to help readers make links between sections.
