Summary

A central dilemma for teachers is finding ways to deal with the multiple perspectives and demands of pupils, parents, school management, and external forces.

The Art of Teaching explores the tension between teaching and learning that all teachers face. Presenting a series of insights into the art of teaching from the perspectives of those individuals most closely involved in the schooling process, the book explores pupil voice in schools, and experiences of teaching and learning from the pupil perspective. Providing an opportunity for self reflection, the book also examines teachers’ relationships with parents, external agencies and their attitudes towards pupils.

Subjects covered include:

    • What pupils think of teachers
    • Teacher’s views of themselves and self reflection
    • School hierarchies and the ethos of inspection
    • Using pupil insights to inform learning strategies

Essential reading for all teachers and students, this book offers a unique insight into school relationships and structures, giving readers an awareness of what is like to be a teacher.

Professor Cedric Cullingford’s many books include "The Causes of Exclusion" (Taylor and Francis) and "How Pupils Cope with School" (Cambridge Scholar’s Press).
