A couple of years ago, I wrote an ebook, Ouroboros, about my experience of teaching, some of the things I had learnt and the patterns I had observed. A publisher read a copy of this book and we entered a discussion about writing a real-life, tangible, physically extant, made-of-actual-paper-and-everything book.
That book is The Truth About Teaching: An evidence-informed guide for new teachers. It is slowly emerging into the light and a couple of days ago I received the artwork for the front cover (above) along with a set of proofs.
The book is slated for release in August. I will let you know when pre-ordering on Amazon (or wherever else) becomes available and I will probably write a series of related blog posts. As the title suggests, the book is aimed a new teachers and is basically all the stuff I wish I had known when I started teaching. More experienced teachers may also find it useful and/or interesting because it summarises research into a number of key areas including classroom management and the science of learning. I’ll include a list of chapters in a later post.
