He tackles the challenges of:

  • Working with new students and colleagues
  • Managing challenging student behavior
  • Developing essential skills of discipline, assertion, and positive behavior leadership
  • Making a fresh start with difficult classes
  • Enhancing the professional role and status of supply teachers

Bill Rogers shows how supply teachers can access colleague support and develop the essential skills of behavior management and classroom discipline. Also included are numerous ideas for schools to support supply teachers and case studies of the author's work with supply teachers.

`As one would expect from Bill Rogers, given his experience as a teacher, consultant , speaker and author, this book is highly readable, with many interesting and useful anecdotes to illustrate the points he makes' - Emotional & Behavioural Difficulties


'Effective Supply Teaching, a new title from bestselling author Bill Rogers, addresses the issues important to supply teachers and identifies the skills necessary for handling the demands they face. It tackles the challenges of dealing with new classes, managing challenging student behaviour, working with new groups of students and colleagues, making a fresh start with difficult classes and receiving the professional status deserving of the role. Numerous ideas for schools to effectively support supply teachers, and case studies of the author's work with supply teachers in the United Kingdom and Australia are also included' - Educationlist.co.uk


`Supply teaching is an essential job, yet as Bill Rogers points out supply teachers are unlikely to receive professional support and development. His book sets out to fill the gap. The book is written in an accessible language using believable classroom incidents to illustrate teaching skills. As a resource for the nervous teacher it will certainly be valuable' - John Lee, University of the West of England Bristol, Journal of In-Service Education


`Characteristically, Bill Roger's guide is rooted in practical techniques for behaviour management.... Rogers is the master of reassurance, and convincingly reminds us how important is the language of the classroom. His book is also essential reading for senior staff in schools, where much could be done to make the supply teacher's role harmonize with a whole-school approach to homework, behaviour management and school routines' - Times Education Supplement


`Attempting to make supply teachers teach with assertion, confidence and leadership, Effective Supply Teaching tackles the challenges of dealing with new classes, managing challenging student behaviour, working with new groups of students and colleagues, making a fresh start with difficult classes, and receiving a professional status equal to that of full-time teachers…. Most teachers want to "make a difference" and supply teachers are no different. Bill Rogers shows you how' - Jamie Carter, Wales in Action
