Developing Effective 16-19 Teaching Skills aims to enhance the competence of trainee teachers in secondary schools and FE college as they confront 16-19 teaching for the first time. Based around the new standards set out in Qualifying to Teach and the Fento standtards, the book will help trainee teachers address the different teaching strategies needed to teach post-16 students. The book will also appeal to practising teachers who are looking for a fresh perspective. Full of case studies and questions for reflection, this comprehensive textbook includes chapters on: * 16-19 Teaching contextualised * Effectiveness defined * Avoiding preconceptions 16-19: planning for differentiation * Subject expertise * Assessment 16-19 * Active learning in the 16-19 classroom * The importance of the tutor role in 16-19 teaching * Learning with colleagues: developing a career in 16-19 teaching. Emphasising the minimal attention given to 16-19 teaching in the Standards for secondary QTS, the book is organised to prompt trainee teachers to draw more fully on 16-19 evidence and enhance their competence and confidence in teaching that phase. Trainee college teachers are also given a route to meeting the FENTO standards. The book is also structured to support NQTs and inexperienced teachers in their quest to develop effective 16-19 teaching skills.
