And find out why ATL is the fastest growing union in the education sector
Teaching for learning marks the idea that teachers focus on what the learners are doing rather than what they the teachers are doing. This is the focus which is adopted by many effective and many experienced teachers.
When planning teaching for learning, our task as teachers is to focus on the experience for learners, rather on what we are going to say and do. We need to consider the experiences pupils will have and the ways we will support them to learn from those experiences.
Consider some ways in which you could use these ideas for other aspects of your teaching, and/or share them with a colleague.
Knowing where to turn for help and advice before you start your student placement and first teaching job will assist you to thrive, not just survive. This handy booklet - new for 2013 - not only includes tips on things like finding your first teaching job, settling in during the first few weeks, parents' evenings and writing reports, but also answers commonly asked questions and explains how ATL can help and support you. This edition replaces two previous ATL publications, Into the Classroom and Ready, steady, teach!, which were specifically for student teachers and newly qualified teachers respectively.
