In this book, secondary headteachers present their thoughts on headship. With the Education Reform Act, Local Management of Schools and the enormously increased role of school governors, to say nothing of the National Curriculum, headteachers today face an exceptionally difficult and complex task. The heads in this book run schools both large and small; urban, rural and suburban; with and without ethnic minority pupils. The heads themselves are of widely differing ages, cultures and backgrounds. Each presents a fascinating account of their school and its community, details of the management of their school, the organization of learning, the relationships between head, staff, pupils and parents and, most important of all, their own unique and personal reflections on headship. It is the companion volume to The Primary Head, by the same editors.

Learning to Teach Geography in the Secondary School has become the widely recommended textbook for student and new teachers of geography. It helps you acquire a deeper understanding of the role, purpose and potential of geography within the secondary curriculum, and provides the practical skills needed to design, teach and evaluate stimulating and challenging lessons. It is grounded in the notion of social justice and the idea that all students are entitled to a high quality geography education. The very practical dimension provides you with support structures through which you can begin to develop your own philosophy of teaching, and debate key questions about the nature and purpose of the subject in school. Fully revised and updated in light of extensive changes to the curriculum, as well as to initial teacher education, the new edition considers the current debates around what we mean by geographical knowledge, and what’s involved in studying at Masters level. Key chapters explore the fundamentals of teaching and learning geography: Why we teach and what to teach Understanding and planning the curriculum Effective pedagogy Assessment Developing and using resources Fieldwork and outdoor learning Values in school geography Professional development Intended as a core textbook and written with university and school-based initial teacher education in mind, Learning to Teach Geography in the Secondary school is essential reading for all those who aspire to become effective, reflective teachers. Praise for previous editions of Learning to Teach Geography in the Secondary School... 'This is a practical and visionary book, as well as being superbly optimistic. It has as much to offer the experienced teacher as the novice and could be used to reinvigorate geography departments everywhere. Practical activities and ideas are set within a carefully worked out, authoritative, conceptual framework.' - The Times Educational Supplement 'This is a modern, powerful, relevant and comprehensive work...a standard reference for many beginning teachers on geography initial teacher training courses.' - Educational Review

A study was conducted to obtain an overall picture of discipline problems in Scottish secondary schools. In particular, the study sought to clarify what teachers counted as a discipline problem, how Scottish views related to views in England and Wales, the headteacher's role, and how discipline related to other managerial tasks. A questionnaire was sent to 112 schools, with approximately 10 teachers per school asked to complete it. The total sample was 1,011 teachers. A supplementary survey was done 6 months later of all secondary school headteachers in the state sector in Scotland. Key findings include the following: (1) teachers viewed the issue of discipline as central; (2) teachers were willing to consider and to propose solutions; and (3) good discipline and a happy school required joint and concerted effort of all the staff. Generally, analysis of the responses indicated two opposing views: (1) that school and society were out of step and that discipline would be improved if society could be changed; and (2) that negotiation over discipline was possible. Further, the study findings suggest that there are no easy solutions, many schools are trying hard, and a pool of skills and knowledge exists. Included are a technical appendix, 30 tables, and 8 references. (JB)
