The Changing Primary School. Teachers Speak on Adapting New Ways.
Clegg, A. B., Ed.
Written by teachers for other teachers, this book is a collection of statements which show the changes that have occurred in British primary schools in recent years. Recollections of 80 years of change are followed by teacher's eye views of how teaching had changed, as have attitudes towards children and parents. Several accounts show how teachers' approaches have changed from giving orders to planning together with the children. Many of these essays are written by teachers in underprivileged urban areas who must contend with difficult teaching conditions. The final section of the book deals with the problems which still confront the primary schools. (RS)
