Product Description: `Teachers will find this book helpful because it locates convincing theoretical reasoning with the familiar practice of the learning environments of the secondary school. Many other learners, in formal education and beyond, might simply find the book an informative and challenging read.... The book provides more than a theoretical and ideological extension of a social constructivist of model learning. It identifies a realistic way forward. Perhaps it will have the impact it deserves' - British Journal Educational Psychology

`Eileen Carnell and Caroline Lodge have given us a book with many virtues.... It is thoughtful and thought-provoking, and the many examples and case studies bring the theoretical discussions alive' - Ron Best, Cambridge Journal of Education

`The overall style of the book is highly reader-friendly. The links between ideas are clear, the case studies are by and large helpful, and the bullet pointed practical strategies are substantial enough to give practitioners throughout the key stages new ideas to try. This is an intelligently written book which does much to further the effective learning debate' - Angela Scott, British Journal of Special Education

'This book is highly useful for teacher trainees (pre-service and in-service). School administrators will find it useful to develop a system that will help change focus from teaching to learning. Above all, anyone interested in student learning will find the volume extremely useful' - Sanjaya Mishra, British Journal of Educational Technology

This teacher-friendly book focuses on learning at all levels in secondary schools. The authors are mainly concerned with how young people learn and how those in different roles in schools can promote their learning. They combine research with challenging ideas to stimulate tutors, subject teachers, team leaders and school managers as well as mentors and governors to think about their role in young people's learning. They examine these relationships within school and beyond its boundaries. The authors do this by drawing on different voices in secondary schools: young people, as well as parents, teachers and others who have a role in supporting young people's learning.

This book will be essential reading for PGCE Secondary Students and practising teachers of the 11-16 age-range; local authority advisers and secondary school managers.

Eileen Carnell has been involved for 25 years in teaching, professional development and educational research and is at present Senior Lecturer in Education at the Institute of Education, University of London.

Caroline Lodge is Senior Lecturer in Effectiveness and Improvement, Associate Director of International School Effectiveness and Improvement Centre at the Institute of Education.

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.

Make A Difference

At Campus Book Rentals our company is guided by a single question, "How are we making education more affordable?" We know that getting a college education is quickly becoming a rite of passage for students and is becoming more important every year. In order to make education more attainable for the 99%, we started renting textbooks so students could avoid high purchase prices and buyback programs. We know it's a better way, and we're going to show everyone how to make a college education affordable again.
