Transforming Learning and Teaching : 'we can if ...'

Barbara MacGilchrist,Margaret Buttress



'Transforming Learning and Teaching is well worth reading' - Ted Wragg, The Times Educational Supplement. 'Rigorous, realistic, accessible and eye-opening - this book ought to be at the well-thumbed heart of any primary school where building children's -learning power- is a genuine priority' - Guy Claxton, Professor of the Learning Sciences, University of Bristol. This book reminds us that there is much more to education than a narrow concentration on target-setting and league tables. Based on an action research project in which five schools focused on developing children's learning and thinking skills, it tells how the schools committed themselves to inclusive education and the provision of a broad curriculum. Through this commitment, the schools enabled young people to develop their confidence, their self-esteem and the attitudes needed to become lifelong learners. The authors share the practical strategies used, describe what worked and draw out the main lessons for teachers, support staff, head teachers, parents and external consultants.
