This book contains a series of short articles which not only offer guidance on key topics but encourage the reader to engage in reflecting on their own practice. Questions explored include: - Is learning through practical work worth the effort? - What can we learn from comparisons with education in other countries? - Is there a smarter way to use digital imagery in your teaching? - What's the point of theory? Isn't teaching just a craft?

Early years and primary are often seen as very separate stages of development, although children are expected to progress from one key stage to another in a seamless way and the historical and philosophical ideas underpinning practice at the different stages are often the same or similar. To be fully effective professionals need to understand and reflect on both children’s experiences before and after the stage they are currently working in and the historical and current ideas and practice. The current drive is to equip professionals working with young children with higher level understandings and skills and this involves consideration of the key historical and current theories and the development of the conceptual and philosophical frameworks which positively impact on current practice. The strengths of this book are that it develops the necessary understandings and skills and closes the gap between professionals working together to support children holistic development. It also provides opportunities to engage in critical debate on current issues in professional practice, as identified in national and international reports and develop their skills through this engagement. It will be of benefit to a range of students on Initial Teacher Education, Education Studies and Early Childhood Studies programmes, as well as professionals working with children from birth to 11 years of age (from early career to leaders) and lecturers teaching HE courses.

When learning to teach, practical experience in the classroom is essential as is learning from others and being able to reflect on your own learning and performance. Equally important is the ability to critically evaluate learning and teaching. In fact, in teacher training, the questions are just as important as the answers: What drives schools and what challenges them? What can we learn from other countries? Does curriculum really matter? How do teachers manage behaviour? How do I prove that my children are learning? What does mastery really look like? This new, extensive, core text from Learning Matters tackles these questions and more. It includes full coverage of the content of professional studies modules and goes beyond to support trainees on placements and in their learning on the course.

The majority of ITE students in Scotland are postgraduates with only one year to grasp the vast skills and knowledge required to become a primary teacher. Therefore, for many, school placement is a source of stress and worry. This book combines the information and support that students need to help them prepare for, enjoy and maximise the benefits of teaching placements for their professional development. It has been specifically written for the education system in Scotland, taking full account of the differences in practice and terminology that make English books of little use to trainees in Scotland.
