Covering the training standards for NQTs and the Induction Standards and also fully exploring issues to do with subject knowledge in learning to teach, this is the essential guide for teachers of foreign languages. Acknowledging that an essential element of a secondary teacher's identity is tied up with their subject taught, the book is divided into three sections:
- framing the subject
- teaching the subject
- modern languages within the professional community.
This book aims to provide stimulating assistance to subject specialists by helping them find ways of thinking about their specialism, how to teach with it, and how to enagage with what pupils learn through it.
Written with teachers of modern foreign languages in the years of their early professional development in mind, this book is also suitable for those on PGCE courses, those in their induction year, and those in years two and three of their teaching career.
