Product Description

Review

As ever with Phil`s books - and work generally - thoroughly recommended. He`s a very rare voice of sanity and good fun in an increasingly dogmatic and dispiriting educational landscape. --Francis Gilbert author of 'I'm A Teacher, Get Me Out Of Here', www.francisgilbert.co.uk

Product Description

You paint an outside wall. It rains. What happens to the paint? It runs off, of course! So it is with our students. We teach them something. We can’t be bothered to do the recap, the plenary, as we don’t have any ideas. They leave the lesson. They promptly forget what you have taught them. There was no point their being in the lesson in the first place. The world continues turning. This practical little book of plenaries does what it says. It delivers a series of simple ideas for how to make your lesson endings – or mid-lesson recaps – interesting, engaging and cognitively challenging. Apply the ideas in this book and your students will leave the lesson with the information you have taught them still in their heads.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as his other books 7 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed his last book "How to teach" which was full of humour and practical top tips. This book is full of lots of theory of learning but few original ideas for plenaries.

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful 4 Dec 2013

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Lots of practical ideas delivered in Beadle's usual comic style. Reminds you of the importance of the end of a lesson when it's so easy to pack up and get the kids out of the door as quickly as possible. A must have for all teachers!

Always struggled with plenaries. Hoping this book will give me some new ideas. On browsing through it, it has already set me off thinking.

Great book, full of ideas and practical advice. I love the tone used, felt like talking to a friendly colleague (in a good way!). Suits the kindle format really well. Recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars A useful and thought provoking read 14 Oct 2013
By F. Shaw
Format:Paperback
As ever, this book by Phil Beadle doesn't disappoint. Yes, there's links to theory however it's written in such a way that it's still an enjoyable read or a book to dip in and out off. Am enjoying trying out his suggestions with good results.
