This brand new text not only explores and examines the concept of active learning, but also demonstrates how every teacher, new or experienced, can translate theory into practice and reap the rewards of children actively engaged in their own learning in the classroom.
Central to the book is the series of extended case studies, through which the authors highlight examples of effective teaching and learning across the whole Primary curriculum. They provide practical examples of planning, teaching and assessing to encourage, inspire and give confidence to teach in creative, integrated and exciting ways.
