What Reviewers Are Saying
Jackie Beere has the great skill of making links between some complex ideas
of research and theory and the practical reality of daily life in the classroom.
Her book resonates with images that teachers will recognise as things that
happen with pupils in the everyday quest for learning. She offers step-bystep
advice and suggestions that are tailored in a way that can be used
