This authoritative book distinguishes excellent classroom practice from the good or the poor and illustrates a range of effective teaching strategies found in primary schools. The closely observed and illuminating examples bring to life the findings on academic effectiveness and quality of pedagogy gathered from 82 focus primary schools examined in the prestigious EPPSE (Effective Pre-school, Primary and Secondary Education) Project. Previous EPPSE publications shared important insights into pedagogy and classroom practice through the analysis of the related quantitative data. This is the practitioners' book, which presents the rich, qualitative descriptions of classroom life recorded by the researchers. These detailed observations of Year 5 Literacy and Numeracy lessons are used to: - describe the specific teaching behaviour and relationships that affected student learning outcomes advantageously - or not - identify which were the most - and least - effective lessons and why - analyse key aspects of lessons such as: interactions, teacher-pupil dialogue and issues of organisation/disorganisation and behaviour management. Effective Teachers in Primary Schools is an essential resource for all primary school leaders, classroom teachers and those looking for practical and evidence-based approaches to improve pupil outcomes through classroom practice. It will also appeal to researchers and students interested in mixed method or longitudinal studies of education.
