Reading Educational Research and Policy


The increased control of education has meant that teachers are faced with an array of texts which they have to read and understand. Reading Educational Research and Policy aims to extend the educational literacy of student teachers and inservice teachers - it will enable them to deconstruct policy, research and media texts and place them within historical, social and literary contexts. This accessible book will examine the four message systems through which educational meanings are conveyed in modern society: *official policy texts *written media *spoken media *research texts. Punctuated by questions, points for consideration and ideas for further reading and research, the book's intention is to help student teachers and inservice teachers to develop appropriate reading strategies so they become more critical, reflective and effective teachers.
