Primary teacher training is challenging. Trainees must be prepared to consider teaching in innovative ways, while remaining focused on the unchanging requirements of children's learning. The fourth edition of this popular core book supports trainee teachers working towards primary QTS who need to take account of the diverse aspects of primary professional studies. This is a comprehensive, core text for the primary professional studies module. It begins with an exploration of the curriculum and reviews the current curriculum. The text moves on to look at 'The Developing Child' encouraging students to focus on child-centred teaching and learning and explores the needs and learning journeys of all children. The fourth edition includes new chapters on technology and learning, mindfulness in the classroom, reflective practice and completing research and writing assignments for primary teacher training.
Schools must actively promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. The Teachers' Standards make it clear that teachers themselves must do nothing to undermine these fundamental British Values. So how do schools and teachers provide educational experiences for primary aged children that explore and promote these values? This text provides trainees, teachers and schools with practice-based advice, informed by current practitioners, relating to the delivery of 'British Values'. The content covers many topical themes and provides a unique insight into delivering 'British Values' in schools. It supports educational professionals to understand their duties around the PREVENT agenda and goes further to explore why this is important. It helps trainees and teachers to see how these 'values' fit within the wider context of education and what we value as educators.
Written by the lead authors of the C3 Framework, Inquiry-Based Practice in Social Studies Education: Understanding the Inquiry Design Model presents a conceptual base for shaping the classroom experience through inquiry-based teaching and learning. Using their Inquiry Design Model (IDM), the authors present a field-tested approach for ambitious social studies teaching. They do so by providing a detailed account of inquiry's scholarly roots, as well as the rationale for viewing questions, tasks, and sources as inquiry's foundational elements. Based on work done with classroom teachers, university faculty, and state education department personnel, this book encourages readers to transform classrooms into places where inquiry thrives as everyday practice. Both pre-service and in-service teachers are sure to learn strategies for developing the reinforcing elements of IDM, from planning inquiries to communicating conclusions and taking informed action. The curricular and pedagogical examples included make this practical book essential reading for researchers, students of pre-service and in-service methods courses, and professional development programs.
