How can foreign language learning be developed in primary schools? In what ways can it be integrated into the primary classroom? Modern Languages in the Primary School tackles these questions, challenging current perceptions of primary modern languages, arguing that modern languages should be fully integrated into the primary curriculum, and looking at ways in which this can be achieved. The authors examine ways in which language-learning can be made a rich experience for all. They offer ideas on how to start language programmes in schools, or enhance those already in place.
Teaching and Learning with ICT in the Primary School introduces teachers to the range of ways in which ICT can be used to support and extend the teaching and learning opportunities in their classrooms. Chapters cover areas such as: literacy, numeracy, science, and their relationship with ICT; managing curriculum projects using ICT; creating and using multimedia applications. Ideas and activities for teachers to try are based on tried and tested methods from innovative schools around the UK and abroad. Practising teachers and students will find this an invaluable guide on how to work together to extend their skills and knowledge in the area of ICT.
This course book is for all foundation degree students who are support staff, particularly teaching assistants, working in educational settings. It focuses on professional, academic and vocational issues that are common to support workers across the school sectors, and provides relevant guidance that responds to workforce developments, equipping Teaching Assistants (TAs) to undertake these roles and manage change effectively. The book makes links with the National Curriculum, reflects the revised HLTA standards and takes full account of the impact of Every Child Matters.
This teacher-friendly book focuses on learning at all levels in secondary schools. The authors are mainly concerned with how young people learn and how those in different roles in schools can promote their learning. They combine research with challenging ideas to stimulate tutors, subject teachers, team leaders and school managers as well as mentors and governors to think about their role in young people's learning. They examine these relationships within school and beyond its boundaries. The authors do this by drawing on different voices in secondary schools: young people, as well as parents, teachers and others who have a role in supporting young people's learning.
This book in the Development Matters series takes a learning approach to development, focusing the learning that takes place through development action - be it intentional and structured, or the outcome of different forms of engagement.

This book takes a critical look at how students' achievements are assessed for a range of purposes, from reporting progress to selection and qualification. It considers the relationship between what is taught, and how, and what and how learning outcomes are assessed. The
impact of using assessment results for setting targets and evaluation of provision for learning is also discussed.
Why are visual approaches to literacy important? Children's experience of texts is no longer limited to words on printed pages - their reading and writing worlds are formed in multimodal ways, combining different modes of communication, including speech or sound, still or moving images, writing and gesture. This book is a practical guide for teachers in making sense of multimodal approaches to teaching writing.
