With Masters-level reflective tasks and suggestions for research based further reading, the book provides valuable support to trainee teachers during both the taught component and the school placement element of their initial teacher education course. It provides an accessible and engaging introduction to teaching and learning that every student teacher needs to acquire in order to gain Qualified Teacher Status, as well as the underlying theory.
