A sound and practical introduction to the knowledge and skills needed to qualify as a teacher, the fifth edition of "Learning to Teach in the Secondary School" is designed to help you develop the qualities that lead to good practice and a successful future in education.

Written by experienced practitioners, this book addresses many of the situations and potential challenges faced by the student teacher today and inspires the confidence needed to respond effectively to dynamic classroom situations. A unit on personalised learning, and another on the relationship between the brain and learning, are new to this edition and all other units have been updated to reflect recent developments in professional knowledge and practice. The textbook features include: tasks throughout, including those supporting M Level study; annotated further reading at the end of units; a glossary including abbreviations; and, a guide to writing successful assignments.

The Companion Website includes: additional units that independently focus on education in Wales and Northern Ireland; appendices explaining the implications of Every Child Matters and Safe Working Practice initiatives; unit summaries, key topics and further reading, highlighted in PowerPoint slides for lecturers; weblinks to useful resources for each unit; editable tables and figures from some units; and, sample units from this and "Starting to Teach in the Secondary School, 2nd edition". This core text accompanies the subject-specific "Learning to Teach in the Secondary School Series" and is an essential purchase for every aspiring secondary school teacher.
