Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'The emphasis in the book, as with others in the series, is on reflective teacher training. The tasks direct course members to consider the 'why' as well as the 'how' of the activities. The authors resist providing fixed answers for all discussion topics, although there is plenty of material to support the trainer who does want guidance.' VATME Newsletter No 71, 1997
