With an emphasis on developing a reflective, resilient approach that will ensure both effective teaching and teacher wellbeing, Surviving and Thriving in the Secondary School covers key issues that may be encountered in day-to-day practice of teaching in the secondary school. With evidence-based practice at the forefront, this volume allows new teachers to avoid the most common pitfalls of teaching and it will help provide a new-found confidence within the classroom.

Including a wide range of tasks that will help guide and demonstrate successful practice, as well as a supporting companion website with additional resources, this book covers day-to-day teaching topics and concerns such as:

  • Building relationships within teaching
  • Managing and responding to change
  • Becoming an inclusive educator
  • Working to improve classroom climate and pupil behaviour
  • Assessment, homework and marking
  • Inclusion of digital technologies and ICT
  • Looking after yourself and your professional development

Surviving and Thriving in the Secondary School can be utilised to help support and provide ideas on specific areas of concern, or it can be read as a continuing professional development (CPD) companion, allowing practice to be developed and refined. Written by world-renown experts in the field, this volume provides comprehensive support for all newly qualified teachers and is an essential resource for the first year of teaching and beyond.
