Product Description


This book was definitely a revelation. Fantastically planned and very easy to read, it has been a definite staple of my reference diet since the start of the academic year. It provides handy tips and ideas on dealing with students and looks at the psychology behind the whole event without once sounding patronising or condescending in any way. If you are new to education - especially further education which has a dearth of resources - this is invaluable. If you buy no other book for your educational career, you need to buy this!

From the Author

This is an expanded and improved third edition... If you want to read reviews for the second edition you can find these on line and at Amazon. The second edition was published as 'Geoffrey Petty' not Geoff Petty. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

How to plan and resource lively lessons and motivate your students
Thought provoking checklists and practical exercises
How to create a disciplined but enjoyable environment for your learners.

This new edition now contains new material on how to:
Differentiate including an overview of the main strategies
Use Information and Learning Technology/ICT to help students learn
Use Learning style to plan interesting and effective activities
Help students with dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties
Write and learn from your professional development journal
Assess learners' needs, including initial advice and guidance and individual learning plans
Monitor and support learners including tutorials and action planning
Meet FENTO and other standards, and realise professional values such as inclusivity, and widening participation.

Teaching Today is an invaluable resource for those teaching or training to teach in schools, colleges, universities, or in work-based training.
