As the title suggests, a humorous and extremely practical guide for both trainees and practising teachers to coping with some of the more common classroom crises. Feeling at your wit's end after yet another lesson with your 'class from hell'? Wondering how you're going to survive the impending inspection? If so, then this is the book for you. Fred Sedgwick provides a range of invaluable tips and strategies to solve all kinds of classroom problems, from dealing with bad behaviour and keeping on top of paperwork, to ingratiating oneself with the head and - of course - teaching with a hangover. It is a must-read for worn-out teachers everywhere.
Fred Sedgwick is a poet, former headteacher and the author of numerous books in the areas of literature, expressive arts, education and creativity.
