The 9 Habits of Highly Effective Teachers: A Practical Guide to Personal Development by Jacquie Turnbull
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The book is a guide to personal development in the context of the teaching profession. To be able to negotiate in such a fast-changing world, people need to be creative, able to respond flexibly to new situations and find innovative solutions to difficult problems. Similarly, if teachers are to prepare society for these challenges, they will need to be up to the challenges themselves; they will need to be model learners and able to adapt to change in order to stimulate learning in others. In short, a new professionalism is emerging. It is a professionalism that requires more active involvement by individuals in their own development and the development of the teaching profession. The fascinating handbook shows teachers how they can become personally and professionally empowered in order to empower others. By adopting a practical rather than a theoretical approach, Jacquie Turnbull includes reflective exercises and case studies to make it easy for teachers to relate to their own situation. The inspirational message of the book will encourage teachers to look beyond the classroom and develop the skills and attitudes to be leaders of learning in the wider community. Well-written and accessible, this book should prove essential reading for ambitious teachers everywhere.
