The Theory and Practice of Teaching
The Theory and Practice of Teaching
by Peter Jarvis
Edition: Paperback
Price: £31.49

2.0 out of 5 stars Dry Old Read, 6 Jun. 2009
This book covers the subject adequately but it is a dry old read when compared to other books that cover the same subject area.

3.0 out of 5 stars Conservative & Traditional, 20 April 2009
Curzon is a traditional and conservative (with a small c) writer who has a refreshing simple but accurate style of prose when compared to the multitude of modern writers on this subject. Without the gimmicks, fancy theories and hype associated with teaching today, Curzon stands out as a reliable reference work.

The Earth's Changing Surface
The Earth's Changing Surface
by Michael Bradshaw
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars The Original Bradshaw, 20 April 2009
Bradshaw's River Theories form the basis of many school Geography Coursework Projects. Although this is a useful book to 'quote' when setting the scene, it is a little dated and limited in its application to the modern Geography Coursework milieu. Nonetheless, for the more dedicated reader - its lack of colour, simplistic language and 'in you face statements' that are associated with later tomes, makes this a more focused read from the days of 'real' O and A levels.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful Revision Booklet, 20 April 2009
The Book covers this relatively 'unacademic' subject well. A nice balance between the practical, technical and human aspets of Sports and PE allows the reader to comprehensively revise for the Exam and Coursework Elements of the subject.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Read - Interesting and Informative, 20 April 2009
Well written; has a very honest approach to the subject and looks at the Great War from an interesting angle - not the usual blood, guts and heros.

I asked both of my teenage daughters to read the book; they are very modern misses and definately not book worms. Most reluctant at first, they both took to it and completed within a few days and have asked for other books on the subject.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dry & Boring, 20 April 2009
The book is over priced for what it is. Exceptionally dry and unreadable it is a struggle to get through. OK, it is a dry subject but there are many books on this subject (both old & new) that are much easier to read than this tome.
