Chris Kyriacou's classic introduction to teaching skills has been a staple for teachers for over two decades. Covering a wealth of professional and pedagogic skills, it provides authoritative guidance on the nitty-gritty of teaching - making it a trusted resource that readers return to. This new edition has been fully updated to take account of important developments in education policy, teaching skills and classroom practice, evidence-based teaching, and assessment
practices, as well as different routes into the profession.

The concise format covers a wide range of skills and issues. You will be expertly guided through developments in classroom dialogue, assessment practices, pastoral care, using social media and e-learning, behaviour management, special educational needs and disabilities, inclusive teaching, and school data systems. The 5th edition also expands its coverage of effective mentoring and the need to continue developing professionally.

Practical and compact, Essential Teaching Skills is ideal for both students and experienced teachers wishing to explore their own practice, as well as teacher mentors helping others to develop their teaching skills. It underpins real-world guidance with up-to-date research findings, creating an authoritative, usable guide which is relevant to today's busy professional teachers and trainees.
