Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'When this selection of pieces was made, Ted Wragg was as alive as only he could be; now that he is dead, the book forms a worthy celebration of him and his life. He was above all a teacher, and his considerable research output - which was essentially qualitative - was firmly rooted in the problems of teachers and pupils. He was an iconoclast par excellence.' - British Journal of Educational Technology Vol 38 No 1 2007
