The Primary Teacher's Guide to

Overview

Make sure you have the knowledge you need to understand and teach a subject area effectively with these easy-to-use subject reference books.

A valuable professional development tool, these guides are written by subject specialists and extensively researched. Each will give you the facts you need to know in a simple, easy-to-read format, explaining why they’re important, debunking common misconceptions you’re likely to encounter in the classroom, and pinpointing any areas of sensitivity.

You’ll find the vocabulary you need to discuss a subject knowledgably, as well as fascinating and little-known facts, and some inspiring teaching ideas to share your knowledge with the class. The small paperback format means the books are easy to keep on a shelf or carry with you.

A comprehensive index and glossary puts the information you need at your fingertips – no more scrolling through hundreds of internet sites. There are guides covering all the subject areas you’ll need to teach at primary level in literacy, maths, science and the humanities.
