Theory and practice

3rd February 2006 at 00:00
Trainee teachers need to be able to relate educational theory to the things they do in school. Achieving QTS: Reflective Readers is a series that provides the opportunity. Each volume contains about 120 pages of extracts from research papers and books, framed by a commentary, together with suggestions for trainees to work out how to test academic findings in real classrooms. Topics in Primary Mathematics include problem-solving and calculation strategies, while Primary Science looks at children's ideas and the nature of scientific enquiry. They cost pound;14 each from Learning Matters.
