5.0 out of 5 stars Maffs n s*** 18 Oct 2013
By SteffW
Format:Paperback
An excellent read. In order to put the book to some further use I shall use Gove's own criteria regarding maths in the curriculum and score it a solid 8 out of 5.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why I'm Reviewing This Book 25 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback
I haven't read this book - haven't picked it up, haven't even seen it. In fact I know nothing about it whatsoever. As MIchael Gove is to teaching, so am I to reviewing. That's why I'm qualified to review this book.
It's an excellent book.

Format:Paperback
As a teacher of almost 20 years, I'm frankly astonished that I've made it this far without this book.

While the standard chapters are those you might find in any other similar text, it's the real world advice that I'm so thankful for. My personal favourites, which I've found have helped me through the dark days until my next holiday, have been 'So, the same kid has told you to go f*** yourself for the second time today and you can't really do anything about it, because there are no other facilities to house them outside of your school, no funding for additional staff in school to help manage behaviour, and your school behaviour policy is so 'inclusive' that you've started ordering children from Transylvania, over the internet, in the hope that they actually are Vampires, or least the undead, as you're sure they should attract the Pupil Premium funding'. Long for a chapter title, I know, but that's the creative writing assessments for you, isn't it?

Then there's the chapter on 'Dealing with the parent who says you can't teach her daughter evolution because 'It's all just bull***t, innit, cause I never f***** no f****** monkey' Believe me, that one was a lifesaver.

Then there's the way he deals with the progression of the teaching profession. There's real passion and drive there. Truly inspirational. Outlined in his chapter on the new proposals for OFSTED inspections, entitled 'What do you mean, they can't all be above average? I'm a journalist, you know'.

His testimony to the continued professional development of teachers is encapsulated in the section entitled 'Evidence base? What do you want evidence based research for?

5.0 out of 5 stars Smell the gove... 20 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback
I've been asked to take on the role of mentoring newly qualified teachers in my school. I was a bit worried that I was slightly out of touch with the latest standards, having been a teacher for ten years...but now I have this book.

Cheers Mike!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 18 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback
I've had to dock this book 1 star for not ruling the margins properly. Otherwise, I find his writing style very promising.
