"The book aims to answer these questions by explaining how we identify quality in teaching, and how different teaching methods may be used to achieve the aim of good practice. The authors explore different approaches to successful teaching, and argue that there is no single way of teaching well." "The authors focus particularly on the partnership method of teaching, which not only gives teachers the chance to hit targets, satisfying governors, inspectors and parents, but also allows pupils to develop their own individual interests. In this way, teachers are able to move beyond a set of competencies towards long-term success and excellence." "This thought-provoking book will appeal to teachers in all sectors of education, from primary school to higher education level."--BOOK JACKET+-+07606785757818ocn297226057file20050.37Burton, NeilLeading the curriculum in the primary schoolOffers trainees & NQTs the management & leadership techniques they will need in order to develop, with appropriate experience & opportunities, into subject consultants or effective members of a senior management team+-+88075476964107ocn690111232file20070.50Brundrett, MarkLeadership for quality and accountability in educationWhat is the role of leadership in developing strategies that enhance learning outcomes?
