Opening the Classroom Door: Teacher, Researcher, Learner
OverviewThis account tracks the return to teaching of John Loughran, a teacher educator and educational researcher. After years of educating student teachers, he went back into the classroom for a year to practice what he himself had been teaching, but was often met with difficult pupil behaviour and unforeseen problems. Split into three sections, this book covers: * a teacher's perspective on teaching * the students' perspective on teaching and learning * learning from experience - the implications for teaching and learning. Using Loughran's extensive teaching experience, this book describes how the classroom situations were played out and lessons to be learned.
