A guidebook for ELT teachers, this is one of a series for teachers, trainers and academic managers which aims to promote development by dealing with professional topics in a personal way, in order to deepen understanding, raise self-awareness, and encourage self-direction and choice.

The book covers pretty all aspects of teaching, from the use of course books, planning a syllabus, getting meaning across, restricted practice and more. It is a thin book, so the coverage is introductory and definitely not in-depth. The chapters are arranged in a logical, topical order, and you will get information and input on error correction, using time lines and more.

I recommend it highly if you have no experience in this field and are looking for a book to tell you more about the bricks and mortar of what you are actually getting yourself into, as it goes into plenty of detail about things you have never thought about before setting foot in a classroom on the teacher's end.
