Richard Fox recently retired as Senior Lecturer in Education at the University of Exeter, and co-edited Teaching and Learning: The Essential Readings (Blackwell, 2002) with Charles Desforges.
"Fox's clear and accessible writing weaves together the worlds of psychology and the classroom. Any teacher who has paused to wonder about students' thoughts, feelings or behaviours will find enrichment in this book." Jon Scaife, Coordinator, Educational and Professional Studies (PGCE), University of Sheffield "Richard Fox has written a fine book ? clear in presentation, wide in scope, deep in understanding. It is rare to find educational theory and practice brought so effectively together. Do read this book if you care about the experiences of children and teachers in our schools." Professor Margaret Donaldson, Edinburgh University and author, Human Minds "A fascinating, practical book, challenging much accepted wisdom, which helped me to question my own assumptions about learning and teaching. Should be on every teacher?s reading list." Victoria Bentata, Stanton Harcourt CE Primary School, Oxfordshire
