Description

This book focuses on the most common areas for improvement in teaching, learning and assessment that are regularly identified in lesson observations, including beginning and ending lessons, differentiation, assessment for learning, giving feedback and effective questioning. Many of the observations about these key topics are not fully understood by teachers, who remain unclear about what can they can do to improve.

Specifically written for use within vocational contexts, Sharrock helps you to fully understand these common areas for improvement, unpicks what good and poor practice might look like, and provides practical activities and strategies for you to use and adapt in your teaching. It therefore addresses the strong government drive to improve standards and the need to help FE colleges and other post-16 providers achieve this aim.
