Tony Eaude's book 'How do expert primary classteachers really work? -a critical guide for teachers,headteachers and teacher educators' was published by Critical Publishing in 2012. It draws on the research on expertise in general and on teacher expertise to explore the challenges of the primary classteacher's role and how those with a high level of expertise in doing so act and think. It provides new insights into the complexity of the role and what is distinctive about primary education. Details of how to order are on the Critical Publishing website>.

'Thinking through Pedagogy : Primary and Early Years' was published by January 2011 by Learning Matters. It is an accessible text that encourages readers to consider deeply how young children learn and how teachers and other adults can best support their learning. Written for education students in the later years of their course, the text draws on research and practice to explore the challenges and opportunities involved, while helping to develop the reader's own critical thinking skills. The book begins by comparing different views of pedagogy, drawing on traditions in England and other countries, going on to explore children's development and the importance of culture and context. Readers are encouraged to think through how different aspects of pedagogy are interlinked, emphasising the attributes of successful learners, relationships and the learning environment. Practical guidance in areas such as planning and assessment and continuing professional development is offered. Details of how to order copies are on the Learning Matters/SAGE website>.

'Children's Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development -Primary and Early Years' was first published by Learning Matters in August 2006, with a second edition published in January 2008. While directed primarily at teachers in training it will also be of interest to a much wider audience of serving teachers and others.
