Never disourage anyone…who continually makes progress, no matter how slow.” Plato Greek author & phillosoper in Athens (427BC-337BC) Discuss this in relation to teaching and learning drawing upon psychological perspectives.
I need to use examples from practice to inform my discussion. I work as a higher level teaching assistant in a primary school. I teach maths and English to a booster group of children in year 5 (9/10 yrs old).

I need to use academic text to substantiate points and further develop with examples from practice. I need to evidence how different aspects of psychology provide different factors to inform understanding of learning and teaching.
