What this text does in a straightforward way is to introduce the reader to the range of theories and models that can influence the way in which you teach. It covers the main areas that trainees on Cert Ed / PGCE need to get a firm understanding of in order to learn about the theory that underpins their course.
It's particularly useful if you enjoy the practical activities of Geoff Petty but find his references to theoretical models rather too anecdotal. This book does look at practical teaching but don't depend on it as a "tips for teachers" manual - you need to go elsewhere for that. What this book does is help you to be informed about theories and come up with the ones that work for you in your context. The range of contributors to this book mean it doesn't have one voice dominating but it does have a cohesive style. Get this and it will see you through your course and afterwards in your practice as a professional.
The theories of Moser, Maslow and Bloom amongst others are prevalent in this book, helping to put them into practice.
In some areas it does go on a bit but I'm hoping this will be made clear later on.
Good book to recommend
Including citing, referencing, Read book in stages and refer to often, to much to take in on one reading
session. Certainly got me through the PGCE examination
