'This book reveals the rich and dynamic world of primary pedagogy, offering existing and future teachers insight and guidance to support their practice. It successfully integrates evidence from large scale research with classroom vignettes and offers a fresh perspective on critical issues. It will help teachers develop as autonomous, creative and informed professionals, ensuring their successful contribution to primary education.'
This book will make a significant contribution to teacher education in Scotland. I offer the following response:
The authors are to be applauded for addressing important professional issues for beginning teachers.
The emphasis on an inclusive perspective is appropriate for this readership.
Setting the teacher education experience alongside a developing value base within wider national and global contexts is also well justified.
The writing is accessible but well -theorised and appropriately referenced.
'The authors are to be applauded for addressing important professional issues for beginning teachers.

Overall, it is this reader’s perception that the book deserves a place not only on the primary student teacher’s bookshelves, but also in faculty libraries that support initial teacher education... The writing style makes the text eminently readable while giving student teachers a grounding in important micro and macro factors that influence primary teacher education.
The book covers a range of current and relevant aspects for student teachers.
The reader-friendly layout and regular 'Thinking Point' style makes the book accessible and an aid to potential discussion around some key issues.
Not appropriate information for our students.

I have used this for my teaching and have recommended it to some of my students.
This text is lucid, well organised, up to date and structured in such a way that it functions as aeffectively as a course textbook as it does as a key reading for trainee teachers
This book offers an excellent resource for those entering, or already in, teaching. Useful theoretical and practical inclusions. Easy to read.
Excellent resource for students supporting teaching and learning in schools.
An essential addition to the reading around teaching and learning. This is ideal for student teachers to refer to and to support their engagement and understanding of teaching and learning.
