This text heads the Open University's flexible PGCE Aspects of Teaching series, which provides a practical illustration of skills, knowledge and understanding required to teach in the secondary classroom.
As well as describing concepts and ideas, the books provide a critical examination of some of the key issues, and will encourage the reader to engage with the ideas and consider their views and beliefs.
They will be an invaluable resource for those who are learning to teach of for those teachers who wish to reflect on their own teaching practice.
This title accompanies each of the subject-specific books in the series, providing a valuable link between disciplines.
The series complements our other OU series, Teaching in the Secondary School which addresses theoretical issues relating to teaching.
Together these to series provide a complete resource for students.
