Being a successful teacher means constantly examining your own development to identify blind spots and ensure you engage on a meaningful level with teaching and learning. This book discusses theoretical and conceptual ideas, linked to direct strategies for the classroom, that guide students towards becoming proactive and effective learners, giving them the confidence to take charge of their professional future in teaching.
