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.
