Although I don't have much time left until I start the course this year, I was wondering if there is any books in particular it would be worth getting and pre-reading before I go. I really would like to get some names and theories in my head before hand, having a gap year has made me worried about coming back to into learn again!

Thanks

Hi Elephant Lover,
Thanks for your message. I am sure there will be others who have not studied in a while so try not to worry too much; it’s good that you are thinking ahead! I have posted below some recommended readings from our first year reading list to give you an idea of some of the concepts /ideas you will be looking at as a starting point.


In the first year you will study 4 modules see below for suggestions, I have included a few keys readings for each module. You do not have to buy all these books; you could choose one title from each if you like.


1) Learning and Thinking:
Smidt, S. (2010) Introducing Vygotsky. London: Routledge.
Wood, D. (2007) How Children Think & Learn. Oxford: Blackwell Publishing.
2) Culture and Identity:
Lawler, S. (2008) Identity: Sociological Perspectives. London: Routledge.
Skeggs, B. (2003) Class, Self, Culture. London: Routledge
3) Historical and Philosophical Perspectives:
Chitty, C. (2004) Education Policy in Britain. London: Palgrave MacMillian.
Gingell, J. & Winch, C. (2008) Philosophy of Education: The Key Concepts. London: Routledge

4) Creativity and Learning:
National Advisory Committee on Creative and Cultural Education. (1999). All Our Futures: Creative and Cultural Education. London: DFEE: sirkenrobinson.com/skr/pdf/allourfutures.pdf
An analysis of research and literature on CREATIVITY IN EDUCATION Report prepared for the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority by Anna Craft March 2001: www.euvonal.hu/images/creativity_report.pdf

I hope you find this useful and let me know if you need anything else.

Best wishes
