Few Irish educators have written books on teaching. This one is organised around work teachers do each day like assess, differentiate, prepare, give homework, choose teaching methods, relate with colleagues, and maintain a work life balance. Each activity has its own chapter.
The book has dedicated sections on teaching reading, teaching mathematics, and teaching children in early years settings.
This book is easy to read, yet informed by extensive research. Plenty here to inspire every teacher.
