Helping Teachers Develop
Bubb, Sara
Paul Chapman Publishing
It is fashionable to say that teaching can be the most rewarding profession there is- and it can be. Most teachers can all give examples of the pleasure of helping a child grow in knowledge and understanding, and achieve their potential. But what about the teacher? They shouldn't be excluded from the benefits of lifelong learning because of their workload and desire to give, give, give. Growth and change are part of personal and professional lives, and teachers need to embrace them; not just to do a better job, but to enjoy doing it. Supporting teachers in their development-trainees, newly or recently qualified, in their first three, ten or twenty years, and whether they're superb or struggling-is vital in improving the quality of teaching and learning in schools. This book contains the following 6 Chapters: (1) Helping Teachers Develop- Why?; (2) How to Develop People; (3) Professional Development Activities; (4) Observation; (5) Other Ways to Help; and (6) Helping Teachers Develop Their Careers. (Contains 2 figures, and 6 tables.) [This book was published by Paul Chapman Publishing.]
