School-based teacher education : telling tales from a fictional primary school
Part of the The Manchester Metropolitan University education series series
Drawing upon actual research, this volume uses a fictional school setting and fictional characters to illustrate some of the dilemmas which arise in the day-to-day mentoring of students.
It tells the stories of some of the main partners in the process (students, tutors, mentors and other teachers) and their triumphs and disasters.
The authors comment on issues raised, provide practical and professional solutions to problems and give guidance on further reading.
The book aims to aid the management of school-based training and collaborative work between students, teachers and tutors.
