Learning and Teaching in the Primary Classroom


April 2007 | 160 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Providing a framework for understanding the individual needs of pupils, this book describes how you can tailor your teaching methods to maximise learning. You will learn how to take account of your pupils' knowledge, skills and attitudes when selecting and applying principles of instruction, in order to make learning in your classroom as successful as possible.

Packed with informative case studies and classroom examples, this book explores how learning is conceptualised, direct instruction, interactive teaching, teaching as scaffolding, and how to overcome obstacles to learning.

This is a must-read for all practitioners and students of primary education who wish to understand how to best apply theories of instruction, and provide effective, dynamic teaching.
