Summary "Good educational research should make a difference to teaching and learning. The aim of this book is to close the gap between research and practice by exploring interpretations of relevant research in ways that can make a useful and practical impact in primary classrooms. A research focus is taken for each area of the primary curriculum, including RE, Drama and ICT, along with special needs and promoting positive behaviour. The practical implications of each are explored and a photocopiable resource is provided as a direct example of a research-based activity for use in the classroom." "While the book is directly accessible to primary teachers wishing to extend their practice in directions grounded in relevant research, it will appeal as a text to those enrolled on ITT, MEd and other CPD courses which pursue these aims."--BOOK JACKET
