The Learning Rainforest : Great Teaching in Real Classrooms

See all formats and editions

The Learning Rainforest is an attempt to capture the different elements of our understanding of teaching--the classroom experience we gain the hard way, and the research that can provide a greater context for what we do. Tom Sherrington brings together the different elements of what constitutes "great teaching" through his own experience as a classroom teacher and school leader, and his extensive review of what research says works. Brought to an American audience for the first time, this book is packed with strategies for making great teaching attainable in the context of real schools.

Aimed at teachers of all kinds, busy people working in complex environments with little time to spare, it is both a celebration of, and guide to, great teaching.

Part 1 is an exploration of the learning rainforest; an accessible summary of key contemporary, evidence-based ideas about teaching and learning, and the debates that all teachers should be engaging in.

Part 2 is the learning rainforest in practice; the techniques and strategies busy teachers can implement in their own practice.
