An Introduction to Education Studies presents a concise overview for students who are new to this area of academic study. Part 1 introduces the reader to the main themes they will encounter in their study of education such as the sociology of education, the philosophy of education, comparative education, and ethics for educators. Part 2 explores the contexts within which education takes place in order to stimulate further thinking about education in action. Issues such as disaffection, pupil voice and breaking barriers to learning are introduced to give the reader a feel for such issues and how they might approach them. Through discussions of relevant literature and research, and the use of case studies and exploratory activities, students are encouraged to actively engage with their learning about theories and disciplines within the study of education and the contexts in which learners live and work. Each chapter is written in an accessible style and provides the reader with start points for further study. This book serves as a true course companion to meet the needs of students and lecturers working on Education Studies programmes. Prospective teachers may also find the book of interest as the subject matter is discussed in terms of theory and practical applications in a range of educational contexts.

This book introduces students of education to the elements of educational psychology. It also relates as closely as possible the findings of research to classroom practice. In order to make clear the fundamental processes involved in psychological development, the book starts with a study of the way in which the young child adapts its behaviour to its environment. This study considers some of the key aspects of physical development, mainly the central nervous system. At the same time the way physical growth and psychological development are influenced by the experience of the individual is also discussed. This discussion of development is followed by an examination of the processes of learning, with particular attention paid to the works of Piaget. The salient points of each chapter are brought together in a summary which may be used by the reader to obtain a preliminary overview of the content of the chapter, and as an aid to revision.
