Lost in Transition: Supporting Key Stage 2/3 English Trainees during Secondary Placement
Pope, Melanie; Purnell, Liane
Education 3-13, v34 n2 p113-122 Jun 2006
Key Stage 2/3 trainees undertake their second school placement in secondary schools having completed a placement in a primary school in the first year of their training. While trainees will have been prepared at their higher education institution, the experience itself can be daunting for reasons other than the fact that this is their first secondary placement. These reasons are discussed in this article, and focuses on how a lesson-planning document was developed at one institution to support English trainees through this placement. The aim of this article is to raise awareness in partnership schools of the specific needs of Key Stage 2/3 English trainees. (Contains 1 note.)
