Product Description

Review

Effective Teaching in Schools' is a brilliant introduction for new teachers, PGCE students, or prospective PGCE students. I have found the book to be intelligently written, and very clear. It constantly keeps in focus the aims of the teacher, and each chapter is broken down very clearly with objective, discussion, summary, and then further points to consider. The author is an experienced teacher who gives sound advice, and seems to take a good, common-sense approach. Incidentally, the book is nicely laid out: an easy-to-read font, and easy-to-hold size. The paper is good quality, and it isn't so glaringly-white that you stop reading with a mild headache. I think, for people who want to end up good teachers, this is definitely a book you should consider reading. (Amazon Product Review) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Inside Flap

'...very impressive...I can't remember writing so enthusiastically about a book for a very long time. Effective Teaching in Schools in clear, up-to-date, succinct and remarkably fresh. It is an ideal introduction for ITT students and practising teachers on the key issues involved in effective teaching. Each chapter is immensely practical, uses theory skilfully and would, on it's own, be a superb guide'. Professor Philip Gammage, University of Nottingham.

Written by the author of highly-successful Essential Teaching Skills, Effective Teaching in Schools is the ideal introduction to what defines good teaching. Recognising the shift of teacher training toward more classroom practice, the book combines depth and authoritative coverage in its treatment of the key theory with the conciseness and strong practical focus students need to reflect creatively on their teaching experience. It is the ideal bridge between the theory students need to put their experience in context and the practice which allows them to build on theoretical work where it matters: in the classroom.

Part One puts into context the wealth of research on what makes for effective teaching, and discusses the key work on understanding how pupils learn. Part Two builds on this foundation by looking at individual aspects of good classroom practice, from setting up the learning experience and taking account of pupil differences to key teaching qualities and establishing constructive relationships with pupils. Part three concludes by looking at ways of reflecting creatively on teaching experience as a way of improving classroom practice.

The text has been extensively revised for the new edition, incorporating, for example, recent work in such areas as the role of active learning and applying the ideas of constructivist ideas of learning. It also includes expanded coverage in such areas as pupil differences, establishing positive pupil-teacher relationships and the quality of instruction. Each chapter has its own objectives and summary to help guide independent student learning. Highlighted checklists summarise the key issues. Chapters conclude with discussion questions to help students reflect on key teaching issues and detailed guidance on further reading to help them research key topics effectively.

Effective Teaching in Schools will be required reading on introductory courses in teacher training. It will also be an ideal companion volume to the author's Essential Teaching Skills in making an effective bridge from the theory to the practice of effective teaching.

Chris Kyriacou is Reader in Educational Psychology at the University of York.

Format: Paperback
What a wonderful book! I have just concluded my training as a literacy teacher and this is the most useful reference book I could have found. With in depth writing on each topic, followed by a summerised version in table form, this is a tool that I shall keep close to me at all times in the classroom.

This book has everything a beginning teacher needs, and it has plenty methods that could be used, when starting to teach. If you only buy one book when training, this one is a must!

Format: Paperback
I read edition two of this book as it was one of the set books on the PGDE course I am currently undertaking. Having read it cover to cover, I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone entering the teaching profession. This was definitely one of the easier books to read on the course, but also one of the most beneficial, and one which I will be referencing in my essays.

Format: Paperback
This book is a MUST for young teachers who have just started their careers. It also is a good refresher for experienced teachers. I use it for my teacher training seminars, and it is excellent because it not only presents ideas clearly but it also has discussion questions.

Format: Paperback
This book has been a teaching handbook for me. It has everything from coping with the stress of teaching to how to establish a classroom climate.
This book is really people friendly. I am not a big reader so the short bursts of text broken by pictures in a nice size font makes it easy to read and understand.

I bought loads of these sorts of book at the start of my PGCE year and this is far and away the best. He writes clearly and cleverly, with research to back up his points - wonderful and so NOT gimmicky
