What is your advice about? Subject knowledge

1: Read a new book or an article in your subject and tell your students about it (whether it’s relevant to your scheme of learning or not).

2: Hear a subject specialist speak – look at your local university for lectures, go to one and tell your students about it. Consider inviting experts into your school to talk.

3: Make it clear in every lesson how interesting you think the topic is and why.

4: Join your subject association and consider getting involved at some point.

5: Consider being an examiner – formal assessment in your subject is interesting and the experience sharpens your knowledge about how to prepare students for their exams.
