The book explores these various models and in particular looks at how this understanding might help you in planning for learning. As well as appropriate models of practice relevant to this age group, further features of the book include: Practical hints, tips and suggestions for practice; Case studies to help you learn from and reflect on practice; Discussion of theoretical issues that will enable you to understand and underpin your practice; Additional reading and resource suggestions. This book is essential reading for trainee and practising tutors, teachers and lecturers in schools or colleges."--Publisher's website.
