Taking Responsibility for Learning and Teaching: From Principles to Practice by Chris Turner
Being an effective teacher isn't just about what you do in the classroom; it's about working collaboratively to raise standards within the school and further afield.
The author draws on evidence obtained from interviews with effective teachers in primary and secondary schools in England and Wales to explore what leading the learning means in terms of pedagogy in the classroom. Although rooted in a theoretical framework based on teacher leadership, this is a practical perspective on what a responsibility to lead the learning means in the reality of the classroom.
The book contains action points and reflective questions, plus end of chapter summaries so you can quickly check your understanding. This book is for anyone who has been awarded a Teaching and Learning Responsibility (TLR) or anyone seeking to gain one of these awards.
Chris Turbaner has translated many of the key works of French theory over the last two decades, particularly the work of Baudrillard, including most recently, The Spirit of Terrorism.
