The University of Brighton is currently offering schools the opportunity to engage in beneficial research.
A small-scale study is being conducted by the School of Education to develop understanding of the role of textbooks within mathematics teaching. Through a combination of observation and interviews, this research seeks to explore how teachers make sense of textbook approaches, and how they are being supported to use textbooks in developing a mastery approach.
Developing this understanding will allow recommendation as to how Initial Teacher Education (ITE) providers and schools can support the training and development of prospective and qualified teachers. We will also be able to make recommendations to publishers as to the role they can play in supporting the successful use of textbooks in schools. Read More →
