Walk on through the storm

5th November 2004 at 00:00
Have you reached your autumn lull yet? Your November nadir?

If you feel that the road ahead has got steeper lately, you're not alone.

As our induction expert Sara Bubb points out (page 7), for NQTs this is typically the season to be less than jolly. Don't forget that newcomers are all in pretty much the same boat, and that things often get worse before they get better - it's all part of the learning curve of induction.

Apart from the usual favourites, there are some must-reads in this month's issue. Don't miss Sue Cowley's teaching clinic on how to deal with prima donnas in your class (pages 8-9); likewise Harry Dodds' guide on how to manage group discussions. There's also a great reader offer on page 12 as well as a special film deal courtesy of lovefilm.com

As ever, let us know how you're doing, and any suggestions you might have for these pages. And keep smiling - Christmas will be here before you know it.
