Learning about Social Issues through Scripts for Learners aged 11-16 offers secondary drama teachers a new and exciting approach to exploring social issues with their students. Focusing on the issues that matter to young people, it includes a wide range of classroom and performance materials carefully tailored for differing abilities and ages. The book is based around four original play scripts exploring themes of antisocial behaviour, eating disorders, the effects of war on families and riots – that have been tried, tested and proven to motivate and engage young people. As well as building performance skills, each script is accompanied by detailed schemes of work to help students explore what the issues mean to them and develop their problem solving and thinking skills. The book also includes cross references to pedagogical techniques and approaches, assessment for learning and ‘learning to learn’. Written by an experienced author team, Learning about Social Issues through Scripts for Learners aged 11-16 provides a ‘one-stop shop’ for teachers to explore relevant and stimulating themes and topics that will engage students in lively debate, promote empathy and produce creative dramatic responses.

This book addresses this question, looking at pupils’ special learning needs including low attainment, learning difficulties, language difficulties, emotional and behavioural problems and sensory needs. Some special needs groups (for example dyslexia) have argued strongly for the need for particular specialist approaches. In contrast, many proponents of inclusion have argued that ‘good teaching is good teaching for all’ and that all children benefit from similar approaches.

This essential handbook offers practical approaches to teaching in an Advanced Level (A Level) classroom, this includes AS, A2 and all level 3 equivalents as well as the International Baccalaureate and other post-16 qualifications. It is primarily designed to give confidence to teachers to teach in a way that encourages students to enjoy learning in lessons in a purposeful way. It will build on theoretical work, where appropriate, to help reflection and planning by individual teachers for their specific subjects and classes. The references section will guide teachers to further reading for each of the chapters if they wish to explore the theory in greater depth. The key messages of the book are twofold. Firstly, personalised planning of lessons is essential, generic lesson plans will not work at A Level and teachers will need to be aware of the personalities and individual strengths and weaknesses of the students in their class to be able to structure and develop their learning accordingly. Secondly the strategies will be successful when they have been developed in relation to the subject and consolidated to secure subject knowledge and understanding. To this end many suggestions are exemplified through a range of subject examples for both AS and A2. This comprehensive guide is a must for those teaching anyone post-16.

This book provides a clear overview of current thinking on the teaching and learning of geography. It is an ideal companion to all students beginning a career in teaching the subject in secondary schools. The chapters are written by experienced teacher educators and bridge both theory and practice. The writers focus on the continuities, whilst setting them in the context of the changing curriculum. The book is divided into four parts. Part One examines the historical context of geography teaching. Part Two looks at issues of course planning, design, syllabuses and programmes of study. Underlying this section is the assumption that geography should not be considered in isolation from other subjects, but rather as part of a whole curriculum. Part Three concentrates on teaching and learning, and includes chapters on the use of maps, field work, IT and first hand experience within a community. The final section covers the issues associated with assessment, across the whole school age range.
