Assisting Learning and Supporting Teaching by Anne Watkinson
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Teaching assistants (TAs) are increasing in number. There are now over 100,000 TAs doing important work helping to raise standards in UK schools. The central aim of this book is to give teaching assistants an insight into the theories of teaching and learning which they now need to fulfil their role, including looking at the TA as both learner and teacher. The book also: takes a look at school policies, structures and systems in order to give basic context and to help promote partnership with teachers and managers in schools; explains the current learning initiatives in schools such as inclusion, the National Literacy and Numeracy Strategies as well as concerns such as accountability and inspection within the context of the whole curriculum of a school; offers advice on personal development, explaining what training is available to TAs and how to ask for this. The book can be used by TAs, TA mentors and others in schools who work with TAs.
