This is a book you will want to read cover to cover, it is easy to follow and engaging.The activates I found to be BRILLIANT!, I especially liked how each activity was categorised dependant on your need in the classroom such as the Fireworks, Altered State, Openness and Focus.As a non-teaching member of staff I have been tasked to work with 'Teachers' to engage with the outside world and bring teaching to life and contextualising subjects to how these fit in the world of work. I found each activity 'simple' to implement but 'powerful' in the impact it would have in class. Teachers would find this a useful 'tool' to dip in and out of, especially to engage more with their students and those that embrace and embed some of these activities in their practice will enjoy and welcome the engagement and overall return of their students. --Denis Heaney, Deputy Director of Applied Learning, St. Josephs RC Comprehensive School
Invisible Teaching focuses on a vital but mysterious area of classroom practice: how can you change the atmosphere in a classroom to suit your needs? Outstanding teachers often make these transition phases look easy, but more often than not for most mere mortals it s more luck than judgement. This book provides more than 100 simple but effective techniques to turn this mysterious art into a science. All the techniques I ve tried have done exactly what they re supposed to: provided great entertainment, stimulated creative thinking and helped me reshape the learning atmosphere in the classroom. --Bob Pritchard, Science Teacher, Woodchurch High School
I love this book Dave and David s enthusiasm leaps off every page and is infectious I challenge you not to be leaping out of your seat to get on the Energy Escalator or play Sweet Russian Roulette. Invisible Teaching deserves to be a big hit with teachers everywhere. --Clare Smale, Inspired2learn, trainer, coach and former teacher
