This book is not only full of ideas and advice for teaching teenagers, it also explores underlying principles, offering reflections on the deeper rationale for classroom procedures. The 24 chapters cover a wealth of areas including lesson planning, autonomy and differentiation. A fun chapter discusses how to use technology to increase student participation. Another chapter stresses the importance of reasoning with teenagers. The examples of ‘discipline strategies’ are hugely helpful. The book is packed with personal anecdotes and illuminating transcripts of real teacher-student exchanges. Often inspirational, it is written from the heart. Essential for those who teach teenagers. Highly recommended.
