Every child is an individual whose knowledge and understanding needs to be developed in ways that help them succeed. How do you manage this alongside the realities of the curriculum? How do you achieve this for a full classroom of expectant learners? Psychology for Teachers explains how psychology can be intelligently applied to the classroom to meet the needs of different learners. It encourages you to review your own practice to develop a personal teaching style, supported by research findings and an awareness of the factors underpinning high-quality teaching. Focusing on how an understanding of psychological theory can support effective teaching and learning this book contains case studies and tasks to make sure that you really understand how theory can be meaningfully applied in the classroom. Supported by a companion website at www.sagepub.co.uk/bucklercastle , this is essential reading for all students on initial teacher education courses including undergraduate (BEd, BA with QTS), postgraduate (PGCE, SCITT), School Direct, and employment-based routes into teaching, and also Education Studies degrees.
