Informed teaching is built upon a clear understanding of a wide range of professional issues. Reflective Teaching and Learning in the Secondary School offers a comprehensive overview of core teaching topics for professional studies modules on secondary initial teacher education courses.
Offering a critically engaged examination of practical and theoretical topics in order to encourage deeper reflection on what underpins good teaching practice, this second edition has been carefully updated to provide a contemporary introduction to secondary education.
New to this edition:
- a new chapter on diversity, social justice and global issues in teaching
- a new chapter on pastoral and tutorial roles
- masters-level critical reading tasks in every chapter
- awareness of recent developments in education policy.
This is indispensable reading for anyone training to teach in secondary education including postgraduate (PGCE, SCITT) and school-based routes into teaching.
