An Introduction to Teaching is intended for students on pre-service and in-service courses who are training to be classroom teachers. Throughout, it explicitly brings the latest psychological research to bear on the range of practical problems routinely met by teachers in the classroom. It offers psychological perspectives to teachers in a critical and practical framework: critical in the sense that limitations and controversies are exposed as well as strengths and ramifications; practical in the sense that psychological perspectives are used to help learner teachers understand their situation and their options in promoting children's learning.
