At a time of increasing pressures and moves towards mechanistic forms of assessment it is heartening to read a book where both the importance of a high degree of skill and complexity of the task is demonstrated. This book also re-affirms the practice teacher's unique position as practitioner-researcher (it includes many pieces of small scale research) and stresses that whilst the role itself is being subject to change it can also have a significant influence on such developments... This thought-provoking book represents a first rate collection of articles well edited into three coherent but not rigid sections. It provides a wealth of excellent material for practitioners, college tutors and students/trainees as well as practice teachers. Well referenced and produced, it is highly recommended.
This book addressed a range of issues, helpful to practice teachers at any stage. This book is a worthy resource and adds to the all too few books on practice teaching.
