Learning to Teach in the Secondary School presents secondary teaching theory and practice within a contemporary, holistic framework that empowers pre-service teachers to become effective and reflective practitioners. This practical and engaging book includes many valuable teaching resources such as: • practical examples and case studies based on personal teaching experiences in school systems, to encourage effective education intervention for the empowerment of secondary students • questions and research topics to emphasise the importance of collaboration and to highlight opportunities for discussion within each chapter • explicit instructional and behavioural strategies and guidance for pre-service teachers to implement in their classrooms. Drawing on the wide-ranging expertise of its contributors, Learning to Teach in the Secondary School provides teachers with the specialist skills necessary to make a difference to the lives and outcomes of young people at a time of significant physical, social, emotional and cognitive development.
