Comprehensive? or a 'Broad Brush' ?
on 28 May 2002
The book is clearly set out and each chapter relates to the current FENTO standards.
For students studying the Cert. Ed. or PGCE programme with little or no teaching experience this is a valuable resource. It is written in plain English....something of a novelty when it comes to books on education theory!
The more experienced teacher/trainer may find that the book does not have enough depth but it certainly serves as a suitable source to 'dip into' for quick references.
The book covers all the key areas but due to the nature of the profession of teaching and the limitations of size it may not meet all the teachers needs. However it does provide a starting point for further reading.
