Teaching and education are awash with myths. This book explores some of them for trainee teachers and asks:
- Where does this myth come from?
- How do we know that it isn't true?
- Why does it matter that we challenge it?
Every chapter poses a few common myths within that area and explores what the research actually says.
Using research as a basis to explore what it true and what is false, it gives trainee teachers a much more informed understanding and encourages important discussions about teaching and learning.
Professor Jonathan Glazzard leads on research in The Carnegie Centre of Excellence for Mental Health in Schools. Prior to his appointment at Leeds Beckett University Jonathan led Initial Teacher Education programmes in the primary phase at the University of Huddersfield from 2005-15.
