Grey's Essential Miscellany for Teachers by Duncan Grey
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


How does teachers' pay compare to that of other professions? What do teachers do when they leave teaching? Which school did Jeffrey Archer attend and which Oxford College did Indira Gandhi and Margaret Thatcher go to? How can you spot plagiarism by pupils? And, how can you monitor your workload? When was Eton College founded and what subjects were taught at Rugby in Thomas Arnold's time? Which pupils of Hogwarts are Slytherins and who taught at Greyfriars? The best miscellany is one that manages to combine, without rhyme or reason, information that seems trivial, and yet is somehow either useful, fascinating or both. From statistics about educational practice and policy across the world, through details (both ordinary and extraordinary) about the life of schools and colleges in both fact and fiction, to handy checklists for teachers, the author of the bestselling "100 Essential Lists for Teachers" here provides the world of education with its first essential miscellany.
