I was about 12 years of age when I announced to my mum and dad that one day I was going to go to university…
One of the most daunting things about moving to the university, is not knowing what your accommodation will be like.
At university, students are given a reading list full of wonderfully different text books, but to me there are 5 books that you should indulge yourself into if you want to feel a little more cultured and more ahead of the rest:
It doesn’t take a brain surgeon to tell you that every trainee teachers life will of course be different.
BUT, there are some very similar views and opinions that many of us student teachers share.
Reading is a truly essential part of studying, particularly for me studying an Education subject – I was always reading up on different theories and concepts. Whether you’re on the 3 years teacher training course, doing a PGCE, or completing a course like Education Studies or Early Years Childhood and want to go into primary teaching then these books are for you.
My flatmates and I decided to reflect on the things that we wish we had known about before we came to University.
