Written specifically for students on Education Studies courses, yet also relevant for students on teacher training courses, A Student's Guide to Education Studies (originally published as Education Studies: A Student's Guide) covers a diverse range of topics and issues. With a revised structure, new chapters, and fully updated content, this second edition continues to introduce alternative visions of education theory and practice.

The chapters are divided between three sections: Education Policy and Politics; Global and Environmental Education; and Learning, Knowledge and the Curriculum. Coverage includes:

  • Every Child Matters
  • gender and educational achievement
  • religious and cultural plurality in education
  • education for democracy and citizenship
  • the global dimension in education
  • education for sustainability
  • the ecology of learning
  • young children learning
  • the effective teacher
  • educational research.

Each chapter contains introductions, summary points, questions for discussion, and annotated suggestions for further reading.

With a distinctive international and global focus, A Student's Guide to Education Studies continues to be a valuable resource for all students of Education Studies as well as students on initial teacher training courses.
