A thought-provoking and practical book which is an essential and accessible text for new teachers and others who want to make sure that their work with students is innovative and exciting. It is written with new teachers of the 14-19 age range in mind, though there is much to interest those with more experience, as well as those with a role in the development of their colleagues. Setting creativity within a context of reflective practice, the book explores how teachers can choose appropriate teaching methods, decide when and how to use groups in the classroom, and find appropriate forms of assessment for their teaching. It gives full consideration to the nature and implications of professionalism in teaching, to the implications of current ideas in management, to opportunities for creativity as well as issues of quality, equality and stakeholding. Case studies, enquiry tasks and invitations to reflect on specific points are used to aid understanding.
