It''s now the end of my second year at university and Denis Hayes has been my saviour on many occasions. This book tells you everything you need to know about how schools work; how to plan, prepare and assess lessons; what QTS means for you. Honestly, i have quoted this book in 11 out of 14 assignments over the last two years. A MUST HAVE for anyone in (or entering) teacher training" "If there is one book you need for your teaching degree then this is it! I definitely recommend buying this book, it has been my bible for the last four years. It is well written, clearly laid out and easy to read. It is comprehensive, informative, and very useful for putting the relevant information into practise in the classroom. It will cover everything you need from referencing academic assignments to real life tips for working in the classroom. I wouldn''t have done my training without this book" "I found this book extremely helpful, useful and it is very easy to understand. For any student teacher like myself this book is ideal and is my bible for my course, but I think this book is a necessity for anyone in the teaching profession. A very enjoyable read. "
