Quick Overview

Establishing an effective learning environment in the classroom requires a clear understanding of different teaching strategies that make children active participants in their own learning. This book explores a range of philosophies and strategies to develop active learning in primary education. It balances theory with practice to provide evidence-based guidance and suggestions for use in the classroom. 

Key topics include:



  • Creating a supportive learning environment

  • Developing the questioning skills of teachers and children

  • Learning through assessment

  • Developing thinking skills through curriculum subjects

  • Active learning in early years education

  • Philosophy for Children (P4C)

  • Frameworks to promote thinking


This is essential reading for professional studies modules on primary initial teacher education courses, including university-based (PGCE, PGDE, BA QTS, BEd), school-based (SCITT, School Direct) and employment-based routes into teaching. It also serves as a handbook for schools that are developing their approaches to active learning.
