Achieving QTLS Series
Each learning theory is explored in clear and accessible language, considering the implications for planning, teaching, assessment and classroom management. Readers are encouraged to think critically about learning theories and the implications for classroom practice. Points for reflection, teaching and learning activities, and useful summaries are included throughout. This new edition has been fully revised to include a wider range of learning theories as well as annotated further reading and a glossary of useful terms.
This book supports all trainee tReaders are encouraged to think criticallyeachers to gain a deeper understanding on how
learning theories can be used to support and develop teaching practice; from planning, teaching, assessment and classroom management. Particularly useful are the summaries that are included at the end of each theory and the points to consider when reflecting on practice.
Definitely one to adopt within reading lists for teacher training programmes.
An essential guide to learning theory written in clear concise English. The reflective tasks help to underline the value of the theories and increase understanding in a non-taxing way. You can dip into the book as needed or read it from cover to cover quite quickly.
This book makes the links between learning theory and educational practice clear and interesting. The practical tasks and reflective activities set within the book help students to apply theories to educational settings and learning/teaching activities. This may be especially valuable for students who have limited experience of teaching (I.e. these not on ITT courses).
An absolutely excellent text that discusses approaches to learning from both a theoretical and classrooom based perspective. I used this text ia lot
This book has been a great support to me as a tutor but I wouldn't recommend to my undergraduates. My PGCE students however would find this really useful and I will aim to include in taught sessions and encourage them to read it.
Helps with unit 2 for the diploma level 5 teaching and training course
A great support to any teaching course, basic and usable theory, easily understood. Great for people who are working and studying and don't have time to do unlimited research.
well presented with clear usable analogies.
