'I enjoyed this book, and got a lot of good ideas from it' -
Chris Kilby, PGCE student
'An essential read for all trainee teachers… covers the literature and puts a strong emphasis on the how' -
Sarah Davies, Senior Lecturer, Nottingham Trent University
'This book guides you through a process of looking at your own teaching and properly building in some of the many new techniques it outlines. This book does not provide a magic wand, it instead provides a mirror onto one's own practice and allows you to make real, lasting improvements in the classroom'
'This book will provide ideas that motivate that most difficult of audiences, the teenager. It works well because it is broken down into quick ideas that can easily be built on to existing plans'
'This book's authors are both experienced classroom teachers with impressive CVs, immediately instilling faith that they will know what they are talking about and that they are giving advice and ideas about things they have actually done'
Although evidently written for use by teachers in L1 secondary schools, there is much here that could apply just as well in TESOL settings and which would be useful for new and prospective teachers to learn about.
This is an excellent text that provides a vast array of resources for teachers. This has been adopted by the department, and put into use by our team, but not by the learners themselves although they are reaping the benefits of the contents!
Great book for those starting out in teaching. Ideas for lesson starters, themes and plenary's. Has helped me a lot
Although an interesting read, it wasn't really applicable to the module content I was delivering.
Essential reading for teachers new and experienced!!
Some excellent ideas for those working with post 16.
Really engaging text, very accessible to readers of varying levels of ability. Easy to dip into when required to try new techniques. Easy to relate to and the author clearly knows his audience.
This is an excellent book for new and existing teachers in FE - it provides innovate ideas to engage and motivate young people in learning.
This is a fantastic and practical book for teachers wishing to improve their practice, or trainees. Its such an easy read and a book ive found really engaging!
