2.1 Introduction

The Curriculum in Action sub-study used classroom observation as the key method for collecting data. The focus was on the four core subjects: mathematics, science, English and educational foundations. Nineteen lessons were observed in all: five in maths, English and educational foundations, and four in science. Only classes that were being taught to the new Diploma in Education (Primary) (DEP) student teachers were used.
