Training to Teach
A Guide for Students
- Neil Denby - University of Huddersfield, UK
Secondary General Methods
Teaching is a tough and challenging job and society demands more from its teachers than ever before. This new edition is an essential companion for those training to teach, providing an overview of important professional issues that all future teachers need to engage with in order to succeed in the classroom.
Aiming to give you the confident start you need in the classroom, this third edition is equally valuable to those training to teach in both primary and secondary education, and includes:
• New chapters on: inclusion; school-based training; creativity; and digital technologies
• Increased coverage of behaviour management
• A new feature outlining the relevant Teachers’ Standards at the start of each chapter
The accompanying website, has been updated to include additional material expanding on and complementing the contents of the book.
This book is essential reading for professional studies modules on both primary and secondary initial teacher education courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate level, and on university-based and school-based training courses.
Neil Denby is recently retired from the School of Education and Professional Development, University of Huddersfield and now works as an independent educational consultant.
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
