This book aims to make life easier for educators by gathering together the theoretical approaches informing the modern principles and practices of western education. The authors are committed to the view that theory has many practical implications and to its value in supporting, confirming and optimising best practice. Without sacrificing depth or rigour, it provides a lucid and succinct overview of some major theoretical approaches and considers their implications for policy and practice. It will be an essential resource for anyone who wishes to explain how learning takes place and the factors that impinge upon the learning process. The book can be read as a series of stand-alone chapters or as an integrated overview of theoretical perspectives drawn from philosophy, psychology, sociology and pedagogy that guide educational principles and practice.Each chapter contains: an accessible introduction to the theories; critical insights drawn from the theories discussed; a summary of key tenets; examples and illustrations drawn from contemporary research and practice; summary boxes highlighting critical and key points made; and, practical implications for educationalists.
