Major books from the ILP

The four books below contain the major substantive analysis of the ILP, grounded in and illustrated by narrative case studies of the social influences on learners.

The books focus on four key themes learning, career, assessment and differentiation. Together, they illustrate how learning is influenced by strategic biographies as children act to maintain viable identities in successive contexts as they progress through their schooling.
