Beginning Teaching: Beginning Learning - In Primary Education

Beginning Teaching: Beginning Learning - In Primary Education

by JanetR.Moyles (Author)


This work sets out to explore some of the wider issues that need to be considered when working with primary-age children and how these can be woven into the broad framework of teaching and teacher's own learning. Examples of classroom practice help to illustrate the different aspects of teaching: what it is to be an effective and competent teacher; classroom processes such as planning, observation and asessment; the variety of ways in which children learn and develop thinking and skills; social interactions and support networks; equal opportunities; and "in loco parentis" responsibilities.

Media Reviews
Janet Moyles's carefully and imaginatively edited book will be of great interest to a wide educational community... This is more than a handbook for students and their tutors - it is a manifest of the dedicated and closely focused professionalism of the University of Leicester team, and I am sure that, as Tim Brighouse implied, it will still be being read in ten years time by all concerned with primary education. - Mentoring and Tutoring ( Generation of PM publication page 170) is certainly a book which will find its way into my teaching. - Journal of Early Childhood Teacher Education.
