This review is from: How to Survive Your First Year in Teaching 2nd Edition (Paperback)
I had high expectations of this book after reading many reviews. However, following reading the book I found I was disappointed. As a new primary school teacher I found that most of the advice is second nature to me anyway after going through a 3 year degree to qualify (as most people will have who will be reading the book). I found myself on numerous occasions thinking, 'well of course i would do that anyway'. I believe this book would perhaps be more useful to a secondary teacher who has to teach many classes of children rather than just one, there is a lot of examples for secondary teaching which made the book a bit general for a primary school teacher. I found other books by this author much more interesting e.g. 'Getting the buggers to behave'.
