The Insider's Guide to Early Professional Development: Succeed in Your First Five Years as a Teacher

By Sara Bubb | Go to book overview

part three

Getting better

This part is about getting better - the Holy Grail! Chapter 5 focuses on the classroom and covers teaching and learning - things such as planning, putting plans into action, developing your questioning skills and the pupils' thinking skills, working with support staff and marking.

Chapter 6 is concerned with managing your workload - something we all need help with. Teaching is a very intensive and demanding job and you need to manage time and set boundaries otherwise you'll get burnt out, particularly as you gather more responsibilities and are classed as experienced. By the way, don't worry if you don't feel experienced - it hasn't happened to me yet and I've been teaching for ages.

I didn't really know what to call Chapter 7 but settled on 'Handling tricky situations' because it seems to me that in your early years in teaching you'll come across many of these - and be expected to deal with them. This seems to be a great need if the postings on the TES staffroom are any measure. The chapter covers how to be assertive, managing pupil behaviour, coping with violent parents, covering other teachers' lessons, handling criticisms following observations, dealing with bullying at work, and responding to false allegations.

Chapter 8 is about leading and managing - something that most of you will be doing to some degree from your second year as a teacher. A history teacher I know is assistant head of an inner London comprehensive after just four years in the profession - and he hasn't had management experience in any former careers. I cover what subject leaders do, how to get a feel for standards in the area you're responsible for, making judgements about teaching, particularly through observations, and running staff meetings.
