Review quote

'This book claims to be 'an introduction for beginning secondary teachers on developing the art of critical reflective teaching throughout their professional work.' It does this well. This new edition has been updated to reflect recent developments in education policy and research. Importantly, it also stresses the need for beginning teachers to recognise the changing environment they are entering. By successfully combining theoretical background with activities and questions to engage the reader, it promotes reflective thought and encourages reflective teaching. A number of the activities are designed to challenge the reader to think and work at Masters Level. Theory is well supported with additional reading to allow the reader to explore each area further. I would recommend the new edition to trainee/beginning teachers and those involved in the training and development of teachers and it would also be a useful addition to the reading of more experienced teachers' - Andrew Connell, Senior Lecturer &Director of PGCE, Keele University 'The book thoughtfully combines core teaching topics for professional studies with suggestions for critical reading at Master's level in every chapter and this helps to ensure that it is a "must have" read for beginning teachers, mentors and professional tutors in both secondary and primary contexts. In short, what's not to like?' -- Sue Kelly Professional Development Today
