This new edition offers new teacher trainees an up-to-date understanding of key aspects of their practice. It outlines the theoretical thinking which underpins practice succinctly, but in a local and thoughtful manner, to ensure that new professionals are able to engage with the content effectively.
It offers practical advice which new professionals can embed in their practice but it also enables them to reflect effectively in and on their practice with a variety of reflection tasks.
Training to Teach 3rd Edition supports the process of training to teach, regardless of route or age-phase. It is a work-in-progress in the best possible way: the contributors acknowledge that education is ever-changing and here they provide pertinent guidance for those navigating the early stages of their teaching career.
Having identified the varied routes into teaching in a clear jargon-free way, Training to Teach explores through case study the key skills and experiences necessary to be a successful trainee teacher. Chapters promote both group and self-reflection very effectively.
A valuable addition is the exploration of creativity which explores not only how to inspire creativity in your students but also how to nurture and develop your own creativity and addresses concerns that a creative approach is incompatible with achievement in formal assessments.
Very well written, and user-friendly. I especially like that this was written by professors in North Carolina, and is extra relevant to our North Carolina students.
Fabulous book for teacher training or PSET course. Highly recommended
A highly practical and appropriate guide for our primary undergraduate students in their Professional studies module.
Easy to use and covers a great range of topics that trainee (and/or NQT) teachers need.
This is an excellent sources for master degree students.
Useful advice on all aspects of teaching for trainee teachers, links made to Teacher Standards. Very accessible.
This is an excellent and concise introduction to the subject. Certainly one I would recommend my year 1 DET students or possibly the more adventurous AET trainees.
A very interesting and informative book which includes generic chapters that cover all aspects of teaching in the classroom. It is easily accessible to students starting a teacher training course which can be 'dipped into' rather than read from cover to cover. Learning theories, group exercises and learning styles are all addressed.
This book explains teaching training methods in a very understandable way and includes some really good examples.
Lots of great examples suitable for those with little or no experience
very useful resource for trainee teachers to easily access
A fantastic practical book for all trainee teachers
due to not right information for course
This text book gave relevant interesting topics for trainee teachers, I feel this is a valuable resource for those at the start of their teaching journey.
Links well to course and is very informative at a practitioner level
Although there are some really useful and interesting chapters in this book, we generally felt that this book was more geared to teachers of children and not FE lecturers who we are teaching
This book is set out in a logical and easy to read manner, it supports trainee teachers to understand and develop their practice through the key issues and theoretical perspectives discussed. I highly recommend this book.
