Teacher Proof : why research in education doesn't always mean what it claims

£10.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Full subtitle : "why research in education doesn't always mean what it claims and what you can do about it". 
This paperback book is in excellent condition, with minimal sign of use both inside and out.


'Tom Bennett is the voice of the modern teacher.' - Stephen Drew, Senior Vice-Principal, Passmores Academy, UK, featured on Channel 4's Educating Essex
 Do the findings from educational science ever really improve the day-to-day practice of classroom teachers?
Education is awash with theories about how pupils best learn and teachers best teach, most often propped up with the inevitable research that 'proves' the case in point. But what can teachers do to find the proof within the pudding, and how can this actually help them on wet Wednesday afternoon?.
Drawing from a wide range of recent and popular education theories and strategies, Tom Bennett highlights how much of what we think we know in schools hasn't been 'proven' in any meaningful sense at all. He inspires teachers to decide for themselves what good and bad education really is, empowering them as professionals and raising their confidence in the classroom and the staffroom alike. Readers are encouraged to question and reflect on issues such as:
the most common ideas in modern education and where these ideas were born
the crisis in research right now
how research is commissioned and used by the people who make policy in the UK and beyond
the provenance of education research: who instigates it, who writes it, and how to spot when a claim is based on evidence and when it isn't
the different way that data can be analysed
what happens to the research conclusions once they escape the laboratory.
Controversial, erudite and yet unremittingly entertaining, Tom includes practical suggestions for the classroom throughout. This book will be an ally to every teacher who's been handed an instruction on a platter and been told, 'the research proves it.'
