What is an effective school and what is an effective teacher? These are vitally important questions for the beginner teacher; questions which are answered in this book through conversational dialogues between a principal, a pre-service teacher and experienced teachers. The book draws on the mass of existing research and professional literature to provide a comprehensive guide on effective schools and teachers. As such, it should be an invaluable tool for undergraduates in training.
