Your Secondary School Direct Toolkit

Your Secondary School Direct Toolkit

July 2023 | 208 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Teaching in secondary schools requires a professional mindset, a range of skills and the confidence to face challenging situations.

This highly practical and accessible book for all secondary School Direct trainees will give you the building blocks of knowledge and skill that all teachers need. It offers space to question what happens in school and advice about how to make sense of it.

With examples from students who have done it all ahead of you, you will be guided through key issues faced while training to be a teacher: wellbeing, managing classroom behaviour, handling the workload, lesson planning, adapting your teaching and assessing learning, and more.

Key features include:
  • Reflections to help you think deeper about aspects of your practice
  • Action boxes with practical advice on how to further develop your teaching
  • Advice on further study
