Journal of Education for Teaching
The first edition of this enormously successful book examined the key skills required for successful classroom practice. Using his familiar and accessible style, Chris Kyriacou has now developed and expanded his work in this updated new edition.
Specifically, the book covers:
The nature and development of teaching skills
planning, preparing, presenting and managing lessons
classroom climate and discipline
assessing and evaluating pupils' and teacher's own performance
the DfEE's competences for newly qualified teachers
differentiation, streaming and setting
mentoring and professional development.
This book will be an invaluable aid for the student and newly qualified teacher alike, and an excellent resource for the more experienced teacher or teacher trainer.
