David Fulton Publishers
"Learning and Teaching" concentrates on the practical teaching skills that an HLTA needs to be able to use in the classroom. It offers guidance and support on fulfilling the standards and succeeding in the classroom role. This book includes: (1) Real-life case studies that put the theory behind the standards into a whole-school context; (2) Practical activities that convey how the standards can be used in the classroom; (3) Guidance on the school-based aspects of the training and assessment; and (4) Advice on the differences between the learning and teaching standards for newly qualified teachers and HLTAs. This book is complemented by a companion volume, "Professional Values and Practice" (ED494473) which underpins the philosophy, values and practice of support at this level. Seven chapters are included in the table of contents as follows: (1) Why This Book; (2) Understanding Learning; (3) Strategies to Support Learning; (4) Planning and Preparation; (5) Performance; (6) Assessment; and (7) Context and Content.
