Product description

How can I develop my identity as a teacher? How does engaging in research benefit my own teaching practice? Becoming a successful teacher in secondary education requires a strong understanding of a wide range of professional teaching issues, including practical concerns such as curriculum development and learning through observation in the classroom, alongside key conceptual aspects such as critical reflection and understanding the nature of learning. This book addresses these issues alongside a range of additional important contemporary topics in secondary education. Highlighting the importance for student teachers to enhance their development by engaging with research, Professional Issues in Secondary Teaching is designed to support professional studies modules on secondary initial teacher education including postgraduate and employment-based routes into teaching, and early career teachers seeking to enhance their practice. Carrie Mercier is Senior Lecturer at the University of Cumbria. Carey Philpott is currently an Associate Dean in the School of Education, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Strathclyde.
Helen Scott is the Deputy Dean for Student Experience in the School of Education at the University of Northampton.
