There is no single best approach in teaching. This new text challenges the idea that there is a 'best way' to teach. Instead, the authors explain, a more pragmatic approach is required. Teachers need a range of skills and strategies to select from, work with and adapt. Every school, cohort, class and child is different. Beyond that, strategies that worked well with a class last week, may prove ineffective the next. This book: · presents a range of strategies, well grounded in research, for trainees and beginning teachers to use in their own classroom settings and contexts · presents a model of teaching that views teaching not as a profession in which there is always a single correct answer, but as a complex interaction between teacher and students · addresses common issues that beginning teachers face when developing their practice If you are a teacher wanting to find out what works best for your class, in your school, right now, this text will show you how to harness the power of small or large scale research to help you find the answer.

The US political system is designed to ensure that freedom and opportunity will always be protected, by making it almost impossible for power to become concentrated in the hands of a few people seeking to run society for their own benefit. Have these aims been achieved?The answer is that Americans have sharply contrasting views on how well their political system works. They disagreed with each other when they established the system at the Constitutional Convention in 1787 and have continued to disagree ever since. This book covers the key issues, political systems and governing institutions at the heart of these disagreements, outlining the thinking behind the main points of view, to help its readers decide for themselves which viewpoint they find most persuasive.This new edition of the best-selling introduction to US Government and Politics has been completely revised and updated to reflect the changes in the area since the election of the new President.
