This cheerful and accessible book is packed with direct and straightforward advice drawn from the author’s extensive and successful personal experience as teacher-trainer, teacher and examiner. It sets out clear and practical guidelines to support your training and enhance your teaching, moving you directly towards a real understanding of how and why pupils learn and of how you can enhance your own progress. It also offers reassurance and support with the difficulties which you might encounter through your training as a teacher. Why won’t Year 8 actually do anything? Why do we have to read all this theory? I know my pace and timing need improvement, but what do I actually do about it? Why haven’t I moved forward at all in the last four weeks? It does this by: outlining strategies for organization exploring issues of personal development demystifying areas often seen as difficult or complex providing achievable and practical solutions directly addressing anxieties. Although a practical book, at its heart lie essential principles about good teaching and learning. It is anecdotal and readable, and may be dipped into for innovative lesson ideas or read from cover-to-cover as a short, enjoyable course which discovers exciting teaching principles in successful, practical experience. The book is ideal for secondary trainee teachers, but the underlying principles about what makes a brilliant trainee teacher are applicable to primary trainees too.

Now at every lesson they ask: What new game are we going to play today? Sylvia Karagiannis, Athens, Greece She earned the respect of her pupils. Last time when I was playing one of your games I heard one my pupils say to another: This is the best teacher in our school. Before I used your games, my pupils didn't like my courses, but now, when I get into the classroom they greet me with a nice smile, and when we have break , they come to see me and talk to me with what I taught them. Naima Chraa, Morocco This teacher is now excited about teaching English. Brilliant!!! It is amazing how many games you can use in just one lesson.

Fº Javier Marín Millán, Spain This teacher created a closer bond with her students! In my country, cause of the culture, teachers and learners often have a very long distance with each other. I realised that English games using in my lecture make our relationship become closer and better, and I am very pleased for that. Phuong Thuy, Hanoi, Vietnam She feels more confident and enjoys the planning now. I really am so glad I found your stuff...it has completely changed the way I feel about teaching now. Before it was something I had always stressed over, the planning, that is, although I am both Celta and PGCE qualified I still found myself very stressed until every lesson was planned, which could take for ever. Since discovering your materials I sit down to enjoy the planning & love the teaching. Joanna Simm, France

Saint James School is far more than one of the oldest boarding schools in the United States. The school was founded in 1842 in western Maryland as the second iteration of the national scholastic vision of William Augustus Muhlenberg (1796-1877) who, with his principal disciples in five states, established some of the best schools in American history. These schools pursued academic excellence without sacrificing the Christian faith. Saint James, St. Paul's (Concord, NH), St. Mark's (Southborough, MA), and many other schools set a national tone in the preparation of young men for college and for life. Their objective was to educate the whole person to excellence and they largely succeeded. Saint James School of Maryland: 175 Years tells the story of the school by focusing on the long tenures of five headmasters.
