Mythbusting for Trainee Teachers



June 2020 | 184 pages | Learning Matters

Teaching and education are awash with myths.  This book explores some of them for trainee teachers and asks:

-        Where does this myth come from? 

-        How do we know that it isn’t true? 

-        Why does it matter that we challenge it?

Every chapter poses a few common myths within that area and explores what the research actually says. 

Using research as a basis to explore what it true and what is false, it gives trainee teachers a much more informed understanding and encourages important discussions about teaching and learning.
