Here it is easy to find many good examples to discuss in class. Really nice book
A useful 'starter' text
A book that ensures people examine their work and practice daily.
This is an excellent book for students at all levels. It takes students through the process of developing as critical learners in an engaging and practical way. It enables readers to really develop their skills as critical thinkers and is an essential handbook for all social work students who ultimately will be critical practitioners too.
Highly readable with useful practical guidance for students.
It's a very useful tool for social work students to begin their learning journey.
Useful for general reading for all aspects of the social care course
Very clear and practical; great for first and second placements, both MA and BA in Social Work
this book is a good guide on how to become a critical learner. it is accessible, easy to read and comprehensive.
A useful text which would be of use in placement or academic contexts. Up to date with inclusion of PCF
Good additional reading for students on the new step up to social work programme next January
In my view this is a thoroughly useful text to support students in their journey to becoming critical practitioners. Lots of practical examples are provided that enable students to explore and develop skills in critical, analytical and evaluative thinking. The chapters include guidance for applying these skills within the social work context and how to employ them when reading and writing. I believe this will be especially invaluable for students who are struggling to produce written assignments of degree standard.
Useful for students to develop critical analysis both in practice and in education
Some very well made points for student readers.
Essential reading with maps on to the PCFs.
This text is better than I expected for a book with "critical" in the title! It contains prompts and guides that are helpful in structuring reflective practice in reading, writing and reasoning processes. With the usual excellent Learning Matters presentation of course!
This text is a really helpful addition to the toolkit that enables undergraduate students to develop analysis and critical thinking throughout their degree and on into practice. It has a readable style and has useful case examples.
Now more than ever students are expected to take on board the required aspects of critical learning alongside reflective practice. This text is essential reading for students entering the social work programmes.
A strutured approach to developing critical approaches to social work, writing and CPD.
