Training to Teach Reviews

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. -- Marion Hobbs

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.

It is not only an academic piece but a practical guide which encourages deep reflection in practice which will ensure that new teachers are able to deepen their learning effectively.

A real must read for new practitioners starting their journey as trainees.

-- Lizana Oberholzer

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.

-- Branwen Bingle
