The Research-Informed Teaching Revolution - Early Years
Research-informed teaching is big news! Indeed one might argue that there has been a bottom up revolution encouraging teachers' use of research.
But at the same time there is a gap between what teachers do and what research suggests might provide effective ways to support young children's learning. It's not that a wealth of educational research doesn't exist (just look at the What Works Clearinghouse, the Best Evidence Encyclopaedia or Hattie's Visible Learning), but the Early Years sector is often under-represented.
This book is an attempt to address this disparity and provide Early Years leaders and practitioners with an understanding of how to embed this research within their everyday practice offering top tips of how others in the field have done this and considering topics such as outdoor learning, early writing skills and parental engagement.
Drawing on the wisdom of those at the top of their game, this book intends to provide just that: a practical handbook for EYs practitioner and leaders that can help make the research use revolution a reality.
