Teaching and Learning Difficulties: Cross-curricula Perspectives

ACER review 
This educational guidebook identifies potential obstacles to student learning, in terms of curriculum and teaching methods, and relates them to research findings into students’ views of 'good' teaching. Author Peter Westwood compiles a checklist that includes both instructional skills and humanistic traits, from which he develops a basic 'effective teacher' model. Westwood stresses, however, the importance of a teacher’s ability to respond outside such structures to meet individual student needs. The book provides theoretical background on teacher-centred and student-centred approaches to instruction, and seeks to assist educational professionals in identifying the needs of individual students and responding appropriately and effectively.
