This book, designed to help non-specialists or for those new to teaching is excellent. As a non-specialist, I felt I needed something that would give me 'original' ideas to produce snappy and fun physics lessons - this book does just that! With detailed information about major physics ideas, it provides suggestions for practicals and how to over come misconceptions. Well worth the money - something you will refer to regularly.

As an NQT, this book has helped me to focus on helping students when introduced to KS3 and GCSE physics topics that are considered difficult to grasp.
Useful diagrams, ideas, common misconceptions, practical work and suggested teaching sequences all help to make this book useful when planning a topic for teaching. I only got this book recently, and regret not having it at the very beginning as it is such a useful guide.
The book is written by a number of experts who successfully manage to make the book accessible and digestible to all science teachers, especially non-specialists. I think it is useful to specialists, too, as it is easy to forget the position of learning that the students are starting from, and it is a good reminder of their misconceptions. It helps those of us who can forget that students do not have our own clarity on particular topics.
For experienced teachers, they may find a fresh angle or a new practical to do to enliven the topics.
Recommended for NQTs and early career science teachers.
