Increased government emphasis on assessment means that teachers need their own philosophy of teaching and learning, to provide a purpose and rationale for their pedagogy. This valuable guide will show you how formative teaching, learning and assessment can enrich day-to-day teaching situations, making learning deep and sustained.
Each chapter is based on real situations, and outlines practical strategies such as:

•Guided group teaching
•Observation & evidence elicitation
•Analysis & feedback
•Reflective planning

The principles set out in this book can be applied to any age or stage in education, but will be particularly useful to students on international and national teacher training for both ITT and in-service; primary and secondary phases; M.Ed post-graduate assessment/teaching & learning modules.
