Learning to Teach, Teaching to Learn

 

Essential textbook for primary student teachers in Ireland, providing valuable context and support for the taught and school placement components of initial teacher education programmes.

The theory and practice of education is explored in the following key areas, with the aim of preparing students for their school placement, assignments, portfolio and dissertation:

 

Becoming a teacher; reflective practice; portfolio writing; learning theories; child-centred approaches; research methods; classroom observation; lesson planning; classroom dialogue; classroom climate; assessment; teaching relationships
