John Butcher Money is the root of all evil. There are times when ordinary people are driven to do extraordinary things. That time has come for Tommy Burton, a London-based financial journalist. After witnessing a murder, he begins to question the official version of events and is drawn into a dangerous investigation to catch a killer. As he delves further into the murky underbelly of the City and the secretive Lethe Fund, Tommy begins to unravel a financial conspiracy that reaches the top echelons of government across three continents. The investigation becomes a knife-edge game of cat and mouse as he draws closer to a truth that powerful people are willing to kill for to keep secret, and falls deeper into the dark side of global finance, where money blurs morals.
John Butcher Developing Effective 16-19 Teaching Skills aims to enhance the competence of student- teachers in secondary schools and FE college as they confront sixteen to nineteen teaching for the first time. Based around the new standards set out in Qualifying to Teach and the Fento standards, the book will help student- teachers address the different teaching strategies needed to teach post-sixteen students. The book will also appeal to practising teachers who are looking for a fresh perspective. Full of case studies and questions for reflection, this comprehensive textbook includes chapters on:
sixteen to nineteen teaching contextualized
avoiding preconceptions sixteen to nineteen: planning for differentiation
assessment sixteen to nineteen
active learning in the sixteen to nineteen classroom
the importance of the tutor role in sixteen to nineteen teaching
learning with colleagues: developing a career in sixteen to nineteen teaching.
Emphasizing the minimal attention given to sixteen to nineteen teaching in the Standards for Secondary QTS, the book is organized to prompt trainee teachers to draw more fully on sixteen to nineteen evidence and enhance their competence and confidence in teaching that phase. Trainee college teachers are also given a route to meeting the FENTO standards.
