This introductory guide to the constructivist approach aims to inform and enlighten newly qualified and student teachers about its nature and scope, and encourages readers to try the approach in their own teaching. The text: sets out the general principles of constructivist learning and teaching in a non-technical and accessible style; draws on classroom experience to demonstrate opportunities for children's participation in their own learning; outlines the distinctive ways in which the methods can be applied to individual curriculum subjects, providing practical exercises to support the text.
