This book describes some of the research undertaken during the Teacher Education Project, a four and one-half year research and development project undertaken by the Universities of Nottingham, Leicester, and Exeter (Great Britain) and funded by the Department of Education and Science. This project involved observation of over 1,000 lessons and interviews with more than 200 experienced and novice teachers and attempted to answer questions about precisely what classroom skills trainee teachers need and about how a trainee's performance can be analyzed so that areas for improvement can be identified. The chapters in this book describe some of the empirical work undertaken in this large project. Chapters include: (1) "Teaching Skills" (E. C. Wragg); (2) "Class Management During Teaching Practice" (E. C. Wragg and P. A. Dooley); (3) "Teachers' First Encounters with their Classes" (E. C. Wragg and E. K. Wood); (4) "Pupil Appraisals of Teaching" (E. C. Wragg and E. K. Wood); (5) "Asking Questions" (G. A. Brown and R. Edmondson); (6) "Explaining and Explanations" (G. A. Brown and S.

Improving literacy in the primary school by E. C Wragg( Book )

9 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book reports on one of the largest studies ever undertaken in Great Britain of what primary schools do to improve literacy and what is going on in classrooms where improvements are taking place. The Leverhulme Primary Improvement Project was a 2-year research project funded by the Leverhulme Trust. The book aims to provide insight into what happens to children and how their reading progresses. It shows how particular teachers manage the improvement of their pupils' reading levels and also follows individual pupils through a school year. According to the book, there were four interlinked studies in the research: Study 1 was a questionnaire survey about practice within primary schools completed by head teachers or language coordinators from a national sample of 1395 schools; Study 2 involved the investigation of practice in four different local authorities, one of which was Birmingham; Study 3 comprised the case studies of 35 class teachers carried out over a full school year; and Study 4 involved intensive case studies of 258 pupils. Chapters in the book describe a comprehensive study of literacy teaching at several levels, from what happens in a large local education authority to the events taking place in a small rural classroom. (Contains 18 tables and an approximately 200-item bibliography.) (Nka)

Assessment and learning in the secondary school by E. C Wragg( Book )

9 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the last few years the assessment of what children have learned has become an ever more important matter, and this book addresses both formal and informal ways of assessing children's work and progress. Assessment is now regarded as a 'high stakes' issue: schools, teachers and individual pupils are often judged by the results of national tests and public examinations. Pupils' learning is often neglected in the debate, so this book puts what children actually learn right at its centre, for mechanical assessment without due regard for the wider issues about learning would be sterile. The book is divided into six units which address topics such as: principles and purposes of assessment; written, oral and practical evaluation; self-assessment the 'whole school' approach; and staff development and appraisal. The inclusion of practical activities, discussion topics, photographs, cartoons and case examples makes this a very user-friendly book for both trainee and experienced teachers in secondary schools

"Teachers explain things every day of their professional lives and the ability to do this well is one of the things that makes a successful teacher.

"In Explaining in the Secondary School, Ted Wragg and George Brown show what explanation is and what it aims to do." "The book is based on good classroom practice and bases its suggestions on the practical needs of busy working professionals keen to improve their own and their pupils' learning experiences."--Jacket
The school governors' handbook by E. C Wragg( Book )

10 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The pace of change in education has continued to accelerate since the 1988 Education Act. As governors rarely receive any specific training, even experienced school governors are often bewildered about their duties and responsibilities, as well as what is actually happening in primary and secondary classrooms. What do school governors do? How can they manage their role most effectively? The School Governors' Handbook has been the most definitive and widely read book on the subject since it was first published in 1980. Written by Ted Wragg and John Partington, two of the most respected experts in the field, one of its great strengths has always been its mixture of up-to-date, authoritative information and humour. Now in its third edition, all sections of the book have been substantially revised and rewritten to take account of the many changes in governors' duties that have been brought about by recent legislation

Education, education, education : the best bits of Ted Wragg by E. C Wragg( Book )

9 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When New Labour came into office in 1997, its commitment to 'Education, Education, Education' captured the imagination of the public. This collection of articles from 1998 to the present day exposes the real state of education during this period, when educational policy has never been far from the headlines. No one escapes Ted's sharp shooting wit: from the 'blamers and shamers' who try to turn teacher bashing into a national pastime to the 'pale policy wonks' in the Department of Education, who issue regular harebrained initiatives from the mysterious 'Tony Zoffis'. Split into seven issue-focused chapters, this hilarious collection will be a tonic for anyone finding themselves unsure whether to laugh or cry about the latest developments in the world of education
