"Alex Quigley... must surely be a writer and pedagogue of exceptional merit - and indeed, this is an exceptionally useful book for any teacher of English. As with all the Teach Now titles, it's as digestable as it is inspiring; written by someone who knows from first-hand experience the kind of pressures his reader will be under as he or she sets out on a teaching career, and what the reader genuinely wants from a book designed to help him or her progress from a novice, to an outstanding practitioner." - Teach Secondary Magazine
"This is a very useful book, and would be a very good buy, for any beginning English teacher. Aimed firmly at new and training teachers, and written in an extremely accessible and engaging style, it is full of good advice and a multitude of excellent ideas about teaching. It is also much more substantial than the catchy title might lead one to expect." - Teaching English, Andy Goodwyn, University of Reading

As an experienced teacher I took a lot from this. It reaffirmed areas of my own work and allowed me to strip back why I have grown to do certain things in the way I do - useful for those times when I'm training new staff in my department and know implicitly why I do things but can't quite verbalise explicitly. I also picked up ideas I've not tried before and like every good English teacher I know, we're always on the hunt to try out something new.
For new teachers, I'm envious I didn't have a book like this when I trained (and floundered) in my early years. Concepts and ideas which people expect you to know and understand are laid out in a clear and unambiguous way. For someone training and seeking a first role, you'll learn a lot about the art of the profession and different ways of dealing with the challenges you'll face - it doesn't shy away from the demands placed on English teachers and captures the realities of pressures faced as a teacher. For all early stage English teachers it's a great book to start with for developing your understanding of pedagogy.Read more ›
The book is easy to read and is full of advice and supportive suggestions which makes it a must-have for anyone starting out as a PGCE/GTP or Teach First student, or as an NQT looking to improve on their first year.

Tedious and plodding in style, and quite basic in content, this is only recommended for those who have not yet ventured beyond their second year of teaching. Read morePublished 1 month ago by S. Doyle
