Lesson planning and preparation is one of the most important aspects of teaching. It is also one of the hardest aspects to learn. Student teachers, for example, often find it difficult to gauge how to pitch or pace a lesson. This book provides solutions. It not only provides easily understood practical ideas but also sets them in a coherent overall framework based on the ideas that planning and preparation are part of a total cyclical process involving pedagogy, curriculum, learning and assessment. Planning and preparation are personal matters related to an individual teacher but this does not mean that teachers cannot learn from each other or that thinking about planning and preparation is arbitrary. Coverage includes often neglected areas such as the affective curriculum, language across the curriculum, and homework.

There is no single best approach in teaching. This new text challenges the idea that there is a 'best way' to teach. Instead, the authors explain, a more pragmatic approach is required. Teachers need a range of skills and strategies to select from, work with and adapt. Every school, cohort, class and child is different. Beyond that, strategies that worked well with a class last week, may prove ineffective the next. This book: · presents a range of strategies, well grounded in research, for trainees and beginning teachers to use in their own classroom settings and contexts · presents a model of teaching that views teaching not as a profession in which there is always a single correct answer, but as a complex interaction between teacher and students · addresses common issues that beginning teachers face when developing their practice If you are a teacher wanting to find out what works best for your class, in your school, right now, this text will show you how to harness the power of small or large scale research to help you find the answer.

Pupils across the age range and across the curriculum spend an extraordinary amount of time writing, yet teachers often do not receive much training on how to teach writing. Pupils do not always develop confidence or fulfil their potential. This book shows teachers how to approach the teaching of writing so that they: - Can teach writing as part of the whole curriculum and as a component of pupils' linguistic development - Can teach writing as a process rather than just a product - the process includes: finding ideas, designing briefs, drafting, revising, polishing and presenting - Use assessment as part of a cycle to improve pupils' learning and the teacher's planning The book is full of practical tips including instant lessons, effective resources, and lists of dos and don'ts. Emphasis is put on providing pupils with a sense of purpose, opportunities to write for real and varied audiences, and experience of real life types of writing.
