Learning to Teach in the Secondary School

Learning to Teach in the Secondary School £23.99

by Susan Capel, Marilyn Leask and Tony Turner (Editors)
Taylor & Francis
ISBN: 9780415478724

A sound and practical introduction to the knowledge and skills needed to qualify as a teacher, the 5th edition of Learning to Teach in the Secondary School is designed to help you develop the qualities that lead to good practice and a successful future in education. It retains its focus on evidence-based practice and supporting theory which provide a framework for student teachers to critically reflect on their own learning and performance.

Written by experienced practitioners, this book addresses many of the situations and potential challenges faced by the student teacher today and inspires the confidence needed to respond effectively to dynamic classroom situations. A unit on personalised learning and another on the relationship between the brain and learning are new to this edition and all other units have been updated to reflect recent developments in professional knowledge and practice.

This core text accompanies the subject-specific Learning to Teach in the Secondary School Series and is an essential purchase for every aspiring secondary school teacher.
