Being taught by a great teacher is one of the great privileges of life. Teach Now! is an exciting new series that opens up the secrets of great teachers and, step-by-step, helps trainees to build the skills and confidence they need to become first-rate classroom practitioners.

Written by a highly-skilled practitioner, this practical, classroom-focused guide contains all the support you need to become a great English teacher. Combining a grounded, modern rationale for learning and teaching with highly practical training approaches, the book guides you through all the different aspects of English teaching offering clear, straightforward advice on classroom practice, lesson planning and working in schools.

Celebrating the values of English teaching, Alex Quigley sets out a `steps to success' model that will help you to go from novice to expert teacher. The English curriculum, planning, assessment, behaviour management, literacy and differentiation are all discussed in detail alongside carefully chosen examples to demonstrate good practice. There are also chapters on dealing with pressure, excelling in observations, finding the right job and succeeding at interview. Throughout the book, there is a great selection of ready-to-use activities and techniques, including effective reading and writing strategies, pedagogies for teaching poetry and Shakespeare, and how to harness the power of debate, dialogue and drama, all of which will help you overcome any challenges and put you on the fast track to success in the classroom.

Covering everything you need to know, this book is your essential guide as you start your exciting and rewarding career as an outstanding English teacher.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Alex Quigley... must surely be a writer and pedagogue of exceptional merit - and indeed, this is an exceptionally useful book for any teacher of English. As with all the Teach Now titles, it's as digestable as it is inspiring; written by someone who knows from first-hand experience the kind of pressures his reader will be under as he or she sets out on a teaching career, and what the reader genuinely wants from a book designed to help him or her progress from a novice, to an outstanding practitioner." - Teach Secondary Magazine

"This is a very useful book, and would be a very good buy, for any beginning English teacher. Aimed firmly at new and training teachers, and written in an extremely accessible and engaging style, it is full of good advice and a multitude of excellent ideas about teaching. It is also much more substantial than the catchy title might lead one to expect." - Teaching English, Andy Goodwyn, University of Reading
