"Creating a Learner-centred Primary Classroom" is an essential resource to improve teaching practice, examining the key elements that contribute to a learner-centred classroom and offering strategies to encourage children to take a shared role in their learning. Including case studies describing teachers' methods for linking theory to practice, this user-friendly, photocopiable resource demonstrates how to: construct a learning community; encourage collaborative learning; share strategies for engaging individual learners; provide a scaffold for strategic thinking in the classroom; link assessment procedures to learning; and showcase the practice and outcomes of purposeful curriculum planning. Any teacher who wants to practically tailor their teaching practice to meet the needs of individual learners will find this an invaluable resource.
