 Informed teaching is built upon a clear understanding of a wide range of professional issues. Reflective Teaching and Learning in the Secondary School offers a comprehensive overview of core teaching topics for professional studies modules on secondary initial teacher education courses.

Offering a critically engaged examination of practical and theoretical topics in order to encourage deeper reflection on what underpins good teaching practice, this second edition has been carefully updated to provide a contemporary introduction to secondary education.

New to this edition:

  • a new chapter on diversity, social justice and global issues in teaching
  • a new chapter on pastoral and tutorial roles
  • masters-level critical reading tasks in every chapter
  • awareness of recent developments in education policy.

This is indispensable reading for anyone training to teach in secondary education including postgraduate (PGCE, SCITT) and school-based routes into teaching.

An essential text for FdA Learning Support students working in secondary schools. So much of the literature for Learning Support tends to focus on the primary phase. Chapters cover key topics such as ways of learning, assessment and pastoral care all contextualised to the secondary environment, and will be of great help to secondary-based students, in a range of FdA modules.
