Review:

"Fox's clear and accessible writing weaves together the worlds of psychology and the classroom. Any teacher who has paused to wonder about students' thoughts, feelings or behaviours will find enrichment in this book." Jon Scaife, Coordinator, Educational and Professional Studies (PGCE), University of Sheffield

"Richard Fox has written a fine book - clear in presentation, wide in scope, deep in understanding. It is rare to find educational theory and practice brought so effectively together. Do read this book if you care about the experiences of children and teachers in our schools." Professor Margaret Donaldson, Edinburgh University and author, Human Minds


"A fascinating, practical book, challenging much accepted wisdom, which helped me to question my own assumptions about learning and teaching. Should be on every teacher's reading list." Victoria Bentata, Stanton Harcourt CE Primary School, Oxfordshire

From the Back Cover:

Drawing on educational and psychological research and adhering closely to QTS standards, trainee teachers will find this easy-to-read book an invaluable guide to the psychology of teaching and learning.

The book starts by offering practical guidance on, and illustrative examples of, the full range of issues in the classroom: the repertoire of teaching, the main phases of learning, the classroom environment, keeping order, and planning lessons. The author goes on to consider the main areas of research that have contributed to our understanding of learning, teaching and motivation. In the final section he extends the coverage to more complex topics, such as intelligence, special educational needs, bullying, child abuse, gender, ethnicity, teacher expectations and assessment, all the while writing with both common sense and sensitivity.

Throughout the book, the author gives both national and international examples of practice across all four key stages and different school subjects. He also includes invaluable questions, exercises and transcripts of lessons to help readers engage with the text, and extensive cross-referencing to help readers make links between sections.
