Tonic for Teachers has been developed by Ian Stock, an experienced former teacher with training materials used by him in the U.K., and also developing the ideas in his book The Great Exception: Why teaching is a profession like no other*.
Drawing on content from psychology, philosophy, economics, critical thinking and more – interpreted through personal experience – the course comprises three main sections, which develop a wide-ranging perspective on teaching and the context within which the profession operates.
The three sections are:
• Perspectives on professional practice
• Perspectives on the context of education
• Perspectives on personal care
