Books for PGDE Primary at Strathclyde

Discussion in 'Scotland - prospective teachers' started by Englishgirl8, Jul 12, 2011.

  1. Please could any previous PGDEr's advise which book they found essential on this course as I am currently unable to afford the full book list. Thanks

    I'm doing Secondary, and the two I've been advised to get above all others are "A Guide to Teaching Practice (5th Edition)" and "Scottish Eduction - Beyond Devolution (Third Edition)". They cover the main aspects of the theory of education which apply across Primary and Secondary. I do know, though, that there are other books you will need for Primary relating to things like maths and language.
    Look up the books on Amazon or Ebay too. Make sure though that you're getting the right edition - from what I've seen, the current versions of the two above go for about £15 or so, but previous versions are about 99p because people just want them off their shelves.
    You could also try just getting to the library quickly - try your local library, or go to the University library as quickly as possible!
