About the Series
The SAGE Key Concepts series provides students with accessible and authoritative knowledge of the essential topics in a variety of disciplines. Cross-referenced throughout, the format encourages critical evaluation through understanding. Written by experienced and respected academics, the books are indispensable study aids and guides to comprehension.

Key Concepts in Education provides students with over 100 essential themes, topics and expressions that Education students are likely to encounter, both during their courses and beyond in professional practice. Co-authored to draw on experiences of working within academia, local authorities and the classroom, the entries provide:

  • a definition of the concept
  • a description of the historical and practical context
  • an explanation of how the concept is applied
  • an evaluation of the concept
  • helpful references and suggested further reading

This book will be essential reading for students of Education, and an invaluable reference tool for their professional careers.
