I have recently bought this book after working in school for over 1 year. Why didn't I buy it sooner?? The case studies are excellent and it is easy to read. It now goes with me to school everyday.

Louise Burnham has written an excellent guide that helps you to think in more detail about your position as a teaching assistant and how you can put your heart and soul into your work to become a better assistant to your teachers and your pupils alike. I bought this after buying Louise's Level 2 Certificate Suporting Teaching and Learning in Schools to extend my learning before starting my Level 3 course and found it to be very insightful.

This book would be useful for someone starting out in this role but gives little insight or advice to existing TAs who want to develop their skills and be more proactive rather than reactive in the classroom situation.
Would recommend as a good starting point as it is full of basic hints and information....not really what I wanted.

anybody doing a teaching assistant course should buy this, I found it to be excellent. Yes you will know a lot of what it writes about but I found it also reassured me in some things, you think you are doing the right thing but you still have doubts? this book puts your mind at rest.

Great book for new TAs like me. Lots of practical information, some of which I already knew but a really good book to start from. Very useful.
