The first, Planning a Course, by Ian Forsyth, Alan Jolliffe and David Stevens and published by Kogan Page, covers such topics as how to choose materials, instructional strategies and how to develop a learner profile. It will be followed in May and September by the rest of the series: Preparing a Course, Delivering a Course, and Evaluating a Course. Pounds 12.95 each paperback from bookshops or Kogan Page, 120 Pentonville Road, London N1 9JN. Tel: 0171 278 0433 (add 10 per cent postage).

The second, Managing Classroom Collaboration, written by Chris Lloyd and Jeff Beard from Greenwich University and published by Cassell Education, is a practical book with photocopiable sections intended to support and assist primary and secondary school teachers in setting up strategies for practising and encouraging small group work with pupils.

It also considers the aspects of collaboration between teachers and how the inclusion of pupils with special educational needs can be achieved. Pounds 15.99 from: Cassell, Wellington House, 125 Strand, London WC2R OBB.
