Learning to Teach in the Secondary School: A Companion to School Experience

Overview

Learning to teach may appear to be fairly straightforward to the layperson, but the reality is quite different.

Overview

Learning to teach may appear to be fairly straightforward to the layperson, but the reality is quite different. Classroom teaching is only the most visible part of the job of a teacher and, to become a good teacher, a student needs to develop the knowledge, skills and procedures upon which professional expertise is based. This text provides the support to student teachers and their tutors, particularly during the school-based element of their initial teacher education course. This element is increasingly important in the light of the shift in emphasis towards a school-based teacher education course. This book gives a sound and practical introduction to the teaching skills which a student teacher needs to acquire and the theory underpinning them. The book is divided into units, each covering a key concept or skill. Units focus initially on the management of classrooms and on key issues of concern to prospective teachers managing classes for the first time. The units then progress to address factors influencing learning and the wider professional perspective. Each unit contains a brief introduction to key concepts or skills and learning activities for the student teacher. These may be used individually or in groups. In addition, there are annotated lists of further reading for students and tutors who wish to explore particular topics in more detail.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'For many years this book has been the mainstay of students learning to teach in the secondary school, whatever their chosen subject area. The fifth edition has been brought up-to-date yet maintains all those elements so essential to those who are with enthusiasm, but some trepidation, attempting to grow into successful teachers.' – Gillian L.S. Hilton, Head of Education, Middlesex University, UK

'I found this book a great help in preparing effective lessons and developing classroom management skills. It gave me confidence and support in my placement schools. When I started looking for a job, the section on professional development proved really useful with clear and practical tips and I still use the book as a reference today.' – Fabienne Collombon, French Teacher, Dulwich, London and Secondary PGCE in Modern Foreign Languages Graduate, Institute of Education, University of London, UK
