A pragmatic, practical guide to help teachers grow, flourish and become the outstanding educators who make a meaningful difference to the lives of their learners.
All the evidence shows that the most valuable assets of any successful school are the teachers. No matter what changes are made to systems or to the curriculum, one certainty remains: children will be helped or hindered in their learning, job prospects, life chances and, indeed, happiness by the teachers they come across during their time in the education system.
In this all-encompassing book on teaching and learning, experienced educator Jackie Beere sets out to re-energise teachers’ passion and enthusiasm for their profession and help them develop a flexible, multifaceted pedagogical approach which adapts and responds to individual learners’ needs. The book champions both children and teachers as learners in the classroom and – together with sage advice on how to develop in all pupils the habits of independent learning – shares great practice that delivers outstanding outcomes for all teachers.
Independent Thinking on Teaching and Learning contains some material previously published in The Perfect Lesson (ISBN 9781781352441) and The (Practically) Perfect Teacher (ISBN 9781781352526), and is one of a number of books in the Independent Thinking On … series from the award-winning Independent Thinking Press.
