This essential companion for aspiring secondary English teachers in the UK has been extensively reworked to help students meet the very latest professional and academic standards, while also equipping them with the knowledge and skills they will need for the beginning of their teaching career.
Focusing on the essentials needed to be a successful English teacher, the authors of The Complete Guide to Becoming an English Teacher, Second Edition combine subject knowledge with ideas, examples and approaches for creating an effective, vibrant learning environment, and real examples of lesson plans and schemes of work. Each chapter clearly links practice to theoretical and critical perspectives on teaching, making this an ideal text for students working towards M-level credits or a Masters in Teaching and Learning.
There are also brand new chapters which explore in greater depth specific areas of contention and challenging issues, including:
- Diversities, including global perspectives on teaching English
- The application and implications of using ICT
- Multi-agency provision in personalizing learning
- Research methodologies
- Transition from the training year and the first year as a teacher
The latest requirements for Qualified Teacher Status are clearly signposted throughout, and activities at the end of each chapter help to reinforce knowledge and encourage reflection. Written by a team of highly respected authors, this new edition should be on every secondary English student's bookshelf.
