Date
Tuesday, 12 March 2013

SingTeach is back with a brand new look and feel! We also have new article sections to better serve your reading needs:

  • Big Idea
    What’s the big idea behind the research or the practice? We make sense of key ideas that drive teaching and learning.
  • Research
    What does the latest research tell us, and why does it matter? We draw practical applications from current research in education.
  • Classroom
    How do the schools do it? In these school-based stories, we look at examples of evidence-informed practices and research in action.
  • People
    What do the experts say? We talk to veteran educators and specialists in the field.

The Jan/Feb issue is what many teachers have been asking for, and it’s All about Assessment! We explore the big “A” and find out why it’s important to get it right.
