Excerpt

In 2002 The Open University introduced a new programme for the education and training of secondary school teachers. This reader was compiled as a resource for students participating in this programme. A wide range of sources has been drawn on - books, journal articles, occasional papers and some newly commissioned chapters. The selection is made with the particular needs of Open University courses in mind. We hope, however, that it will be of value for others who are similarly involved in the preparation of teachers. The selection can be used and interpreted in a variety of ways. We hope, as well, that the reader will be of interest and value more widely to those involved in the important ongoing task of improving and reforming secondary education. We would like to acknowledge and express our thanks to the range of contributors, and to Mike Bird for his essential support in preparing this reader.
