Product Description


'Wellington's treatment of the concepts that he does include is lucid, accessible and on the whole helpful. He is not afraid to include his own views where he considers this pertinent, and in the main offers a reasoned, sensible account of a range of concepts and their histories. His decision to add references and possible websites to each entry for further exploration adds a useful dimension to this volume.' British Journal of Educational Technology

A guide through the controversies, theories, and practices central to secondary education in modern American society 4 Aug. 2006
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Paperback
Secondary Education: The Key Concepts by Jerry Wellington (Professor of Education at the University of Sheffield) is an informed, informative, thoughtful and thought-provoking guide through the controversies, theories, and practices central to secondary education in modern American society. Knowledgeably compiling documentation focused upon the education issues of assessment, citizenship, curriculum, e-learning, exclusion, learning theories, and work experience, Secondary Education offers teachers, administrators, policy makers, and non-specialist general readers with an interest in education and the modern schooling system, a detailed compendium of information drawn from academic research studies pertaining to the contemporary history and state of secondary schooling. A work of impressive, seminal scholarship, Secondary Education is very highly recommended for academic library "Education Studies" reference collections and student teacher supplemental reading lists.
