How to Teach for Exams, Sally Burgess and Katie Head, Longman, 2005

how to teach for exams

This title would not be on my recommended Delta reading list. It’s a title that’s useful if you are new to teaching exam classes and want some ‘whole picture’ support, and/or have to work from a textbook that doesn’t give you any further ideas for class activities other than to complete all the tasks in the book from start to finish, since How to Teach for Exams contains several skills development activities in each section that you can try with your students to make teaching exam classes more lively.

The most important reminder is for teachers to be really familiar with the exam they are teaching, such as through working through practice papers to real time, and to stay up-to-date with any changes to the exam.
