The move from a syllabus of training detailing concise statements in relation to learning to a curriculum for education that emphasises learning strategy and outcomes is a fairly recent development in education planning. Now the teacher is a facilitator of learning with the expertise to create a stimulating learning environment. I highly recommend this book as a rich source of education development for the new teacher and as a refresher for the more experienced teacher' - Dorothy Marriss, in the Foreword.
