Working with Support in the Classroom

Synopsis

Working with Support in the Classroom by Anne Campbell

'Readers at all levels of experience will be able to reflect on how to develop creative and constructive paths leading to a partnership of professionals, and to make teams work in a way that really benefits the learning of children in their care' - Min Wilkie, School of Education, University of Leicester Over recent years, there has been a vast increase in the number of people who support children's learning in classrooms and other educational settings, both as employees and as volunteers. This book provides teachers with advice on how to work collaboratively to achieve the best outcomes. Using stories of successful practice, the book explores the roles that can be played by people other than qualified teachers.

Reviews

'Through working with teaching assistants on courses I know that the balancing of relationships is a central concern. This book will provide a valuable opportunity to extend this experience during Initial Teacher Training. Readers at all levels of experience will be able to reflect on how to develop creative and constructive paths leading to a partnership of professionals, and to make teams work in a way that really benefits the learning of children in their care.' - Min Wilkie, School of Education, University of Leicester

'The publication of this book is most timely. As the plans for the remodelling of the school workforce begin to take shape, further complexities surrounding the area continue to be exposed. This book addresses many of these and does so in an accessible and thought provoking way. Simplistic answers to how best we can work with support in the classroom are not provided, but different ways of approaching the question are. By reading about, and engaging with, fictionalised accounts, case studies, stories and vignettes, the reader is transported across the whole range of educational settings, exploring the myriad definitions of classroom support ' - Dr Iris Keating, Manchester Metropolitan University'

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

A great place to go to find your next literary escape, and where you don't have to judge a book by its cover!
