£29.99
Usually despatched within 3 weeks.

Synopsis

The transition from primary to secondary school can often be a difficult time for children, and managing the transition smoothly has posed a problem for teachers at both upper primary and lower secondary level. At a time when 'childhood' recedes and 'adulthood' beckons, the inequalities between individual children can widen, and meeting the needs of all children is a challenge.











Bridging the Transition from Primary to Secondary School offers an insight into children's development, building a framework for the creation of appropriate and relevant educational experiences of children between the ages of 10-12. Based on the five 'transition bridges' - administrative, social and personal, curriculum, pedagogy, and autonomy and managing learning - this book is a complete guide to the primary-secondary transition.











Chapters cover:























A review of the issues and challenges of transition and school transfer;















Management of physical, intellectual, social and emotional changes;















Issues of changing self-identity;















Approaches to ensure curriculum progression and continuity;















Ways to develop cooperation between primary and secondary schools;















Alternatives to traditional primary-secondary systems and pedagogy.

















This book will be essential reading for all trainee teachers, undergraduate and postgraduate education students, and those working with children over the transition. The contributors offer a wealth of guidance and insight into meeting the educational and social needs of children through early adolescence.
