Now in its fifth edition, entries have been revised to take account of new research and thinking. The approach is supportive of the reflective practitioner in meeting National Curriculum requirements in England and developing sound subject knowledge and good classroom practice.

In a time of great change and increasing demands on teachers, here is a reference book explaining key concepts, ideas and current requirements in the huge area of primary English. The encyclopedia aims to be comprehensive, user friendly and interesting. While the author has the needs of UK primary teachers and student teachers very much in mind, the intended audience stretches to anyone anywhere concerned about children's progress in English up to 11 years. The encyclopedia includes many short definitions - parts of speech, for example - and succinct explanations of current UK requirements. However, the author, who has worked with children and student teachers for many years, bears in mind the bigger shapes and purposes - how we can help children become confident speakers, thoughtful listeners, sensitive readers and successful writers. The project was inspired by a student teacher group who wanted a book that would be a friend throughout their primary English course and beyond. The encyclopedia includes an introduction identifying the heart of primary English and providing a unifying framework for the book; over 800 entries; fifteen extended entries on, for example, speaking and listening, reading, writing, drama, special needs and English, young learners speaking English as an additional language and assessment; up to date information and key issues; examples of children's work; and charts and diagrams.

This book has a simple intent. In September 2014, primary schools in England will be expected to adopt a new National Curriculum. There is good time to prepare, and this book shows you how. At this point of curriculum change and evolution in England’s primary schools, a number of contributors have offered their reflections on how primary schools across the country might take forward and shape their own curriculum framework for pupils. The spirit of the book is based on considerable leadership experience in schools – ‘letting-a-thousand-flowers-bloom rather than recommending a one-size-fits-all approach’. The authors’ reflections come from varying perspectives: teachers, headteachers, directors of foundations and leading thinkers on education, each of whom is involved in the work of the National Education Trust (, an independent charitable foundation which champions best practice. Contributors include: Kate Atkins; Roy Blatchford; Tim Coulson; Kate Dethridge; Professor Deborah Eyre; Kate Frood; Dr Neil Hawkes; Richard Howard; Peter Hyman; Pamela Matty; Chris Nourse; Katy Peters; Laurence Pitt; Will Power; Jane Ratcliffe; Dave Smith; Rob Stokoe; Kathy Wood; Chris Yapp ‘The contributors are people who understand the realities of primary education yet retain that spark of imagination and creativity about what might be possible. The book will provide that most important of opportunities – to share good practice and debate with others. I’ve no doubt that minds and opinions will be changed by these contributions.' Estelle Morris, former Secretary of State for Education and Skills

First published in Portuguese in 1968, Pedagogy of the Oppressed was translated and published in English in 1970. Paulo Freire's work has helped to empower countless people throughout the world and has taken on special urgency in the United States and Western Europe, where the creation of a permanent underclass among the underprivileged and minorities in cities and urban centers is ongoing. This 50th anniversary edition includes an updated introduction by Donaldo Macedo, a new afterword by Ira Shor and interviews with Marina Aparicio Barberán, Noam Chomsky, Ramón Flecha, Gustavo Fischman, Ronald David Glass, Valerie Kinloch, Peter Mayo, Peter McLaren and Margo Okazawa-Rey to inspire a new generation of educators, students, and general readers for years to come.
