This is a practical teacher training manual, interspersed with humorous, critical reflections from this trainee's older, wiser self. There are many, many teacher training books that claim to offer practical advice; some of them are even useful. There are also humorous books aimed at teachers claiming to offer a zany, sideways look at our madcap world; some of them even contain a joke. This book, although light in tone, has a serious intent: to reassure trainee and beginning teachers that are parachuted into difficult schools without anything like the right level of preparation. Tom Bennett walks you through the training and initial teaching practice, offering practical advice and wisdom from the more experienced vantage point of hindsight. This double-narrator style allows you to identify with the situation, learn from the experience and then critically reflect on your own teaching journey. But most importantly, this is a teacher training guide disguised as something actually readable.
