Bluffer's Guide to Teaching: Instant wit and wisdom (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


The secret of successful teaching lies in mastering a classroom technique that will keep the children quiet and well behaved. It is therefore an undeniable reality that an effective teacher has more in common with a short tempered prison officer than a benevolent educator. The Bluffer's Guide to Teaching will show aspiring mentors how to be accessible, enthusiastic and caring - and terrifying enough to keep a classroom of bored and calculating juveniles gainfully occupied.

Author Nick Yapp is a former head teacher whose interests are classical music, cooking and cricket. Unfortunately none of these subjects are of any remote interest to any child he has ever had the pleasure to teach. He lives in hope that one day he will encounter a classroom yearning to be instructed in all three. As children are wont to intone: 'Not going to happen.'
