August 2007 | 160 pages | Learning Matters
This new title applies inspiring ideas and teaching approaches to the different subject areas taught in primary schools. Using a practical, subject-based approach, it promotes creativity, innovativeness and enthusiasm as integral to effective teaching and enhanced standards. Each chapter introduces a subject, its key issues, vital knowledge and pedagogical implications. In addition, case studies, action points, key quotes and thought-provoking suggestions for practice encourage readers to engage with the text. Offering refreshing, innovative perspectives in an accessible format, this book will help trainees and teachers to develop skills, boost their confidence and, crucially, increase their own and their pupils' enjoyment.
