New Teachers magazine

The 11 January edition of Times Educational Supplement Scotland (TESS) included a magazine for new teachers. This magazine was probably produced with English readers in mind, but the fact that it was included in TESS indicates there are many points which apply to new teachers in Scotland too.

Mairi McAra, Education Adviser for Early Professional Learning, recommends this magazine as a good read for probationer teachers. Although she doesn't agree with everything written in the magazine, it gives topics to think about and maybe even talk about with your supporter. There are interesting pieces on classroom presence, establishing yourself as a teacher, advice from newly qualified teachers and plenty to think about in the article on social media. There are also some good suggestions for further reading.

If you haven't had the chance to have a look through this magazine yet, perhaps you could try to get a copy from a colleague or your school staff room.
