David Didau and Nick Rose

This book acts as a primer, outlining the evidence and theoretical perspectives on some of the most important and useful psychological principles that teachers ought to be aware of.

The authors encourage readers to make up their own minds about what is useful to their practice, rather than dictating how the different principles should be used.

They allow space in the classroom for teachers’ intuition, but suggest that a good understanding of the basics of psychology will help to refine and focus teachers’ hunches, and give them a sound theoretical base to work from.  

In listing research, EdCentral makes no judgment or recommendation as to its quality, validity or methodology and none should be inferred. Through peer ratings left by education practitioners, EdCentral’s aim is to support the development of a repository of shared knowledge and experience.
