This practical guide offers valuable support for student-teachers and teachers in their early professional development. Divided into three sections it covers:

  • key pedagogical issues and planning
  • developing key skills, knowledge and understanding
  • broadening your perspective.

Teaching is rapidly becoming a more research and evidence-informed profession and the materials in this book are specifically designed to support developments in the (pedagogical) knowledge base in teaching.

The guide extends the popular Learning to Teach Modern Foreign Languages in the Secondary School by providing detailed examples of theory in practice. These examples are based on the up-to-date research and practice. In addition, they provide links to relevant sources supporting evidence-informed practice.
