Book Description

Flexible, effective and creative primary school teachers require subject knowledge, an understanding of their pupils and how they learn, a range of strategies for managing behaviour and organising environments for learning, and the ability to respond to classroom situations.

This third edition of Learning to Teach in the Primary School is fully updated with reference to the new National Curriculum, and has been revised to provide even more practical advice and guidance to trainee primary teachers. Twenty-two new authors have been involved and connections are now made to Northern Irish, Welsh and Scottish policies. In addition, five new have been included on:

  • making the most of your placement
  • play and exploration in learning
  • behaviour
  • special educational needs
  • phonics.

With Masters-level reflective tasks and suggestions for research-based further reading, the book provides valuable support to trainee teachers engaged in learning through school-based experience and through reading, discussion and reflections as part of a teacher course. It provides an accessible and engaging introduction to knowledge about teaching and learning that every student teacher needs to acquire in order to gain qualified teacher status (QTS).

This comprehensive textbook is essential reading for all students to be primary school teachers, including those on undergraduate teacher courses (BEd, BA with QTS, BSc with QTS), postgraduate teacher courses (PGCE, SCITT) and employment-based teacher courses (Schools Direct, Teach First), plus those studying Education Studies.

This textbook is supported by a free companion website with additional resources for instructors and students and can be accessed at www.routledge.com/cw/Cremin.
