A Guide to Teaching Practice
Routledge – 1996 – 512 pages
A Guide to Teaching Practice has long been a major standard for all students on initial teacher training courses. This new edition has been extensively revised and updated to take account of the many changes which have taken place both within the education system and within training courses, including:
* school-based training,
* the impact of information technology and the increasing concern for school effectiveness.
As before, the book covers all the important basic skills and issues which students need to consider during their practice, such as planning, classroom organisation, behaviour management and assessment.
The fifth edition will ensure that this book remains one of the most useful and widely read texts for students embarking upon teacher training.
'In a brief overview such as this it is impossible to do full justice to such a detailed book of almost five hundred pages. In essence it covers just about everything a student teacher needs to know in a single volume.' - British Journal of Educational Studies
'This is a welcome new edition of what has become something of a standard text for student teachers.' - British Journal of Educational Studies
'The new fifth edition is quite outstanding.' - Michael Duffy, TES
