Great for those teachers who are working towards outstanding already.offers little practical solutions that simply require some tweaking of current practice to really get the best out of a class.

Teachers have so little time these days to catch up on the latest ideas. This is a good summary bullet point type book, which you can read quickly and get the idea. I keep this on my desk in my teaching room.

I love the pocketbook guides anyway but this new addition is excellent! It contains lots of practical tips and strategies - which i have already been tempted to try in the classroom. It's handbage sized and not smug! (A defintite plus for me!) Very easy to access and avoids all the usual 'checklists' that outstanding lesson advice usually offers. Will be recommending it to our trainees.

What would it be like to be a pupil in YOUR class? That is just one of the questions that Caroline Bentley-Davies poses in her 'Outstanding' Outstanding Lessons Pocketbook. This pocketbook has something for everyone; whether you are teacher training, an NQT or have been teaching for years; there is something for you to LEARN. You can read it from cover to cover or just 'dip in' as you need. The pocketbook encourages you to reflect on your own teaching practice and asks questions throughout to guide your reflection. It reminds you of some important messages especially that being 'outstanding' is not about the teacher creating a 'theatrical production'; pupils should be centre stage in lessons and that it should be part of your 'routine' teaching! For me, it reminded me about the importance of looking at the relevance of activities that I have chosen and HOW they contribute towards students' learning - not about the gimmicks! There are also succinct examples of case studies, from all subject areas, to reinforce the different points that Bentley-Davies puts across. Some of the things I loved were: FAST starts, Sparkling Starters, ROIL your praise and the use of S-T-A-R-T for improving teacher instructions - I won't tell you what all these acronyms mean - you will have to read the book for yourself to find out!!! The one thing that I will be using IMMEDIATELY is 'Key Terms Splat' - just got to buy a fly swatter now...

I work in Yr 2 pt but also do supply up to yr 6 the rest of the week. I wanted some ideas as it's hard going into unknown class and being outstanding. Useful tips to dip into and also clarify what the outstanding ideal is. Got best lesson observation critique recently under new framework, so obviously something has helped me.

Once again Caroline Bentley- Davies does not fail to deliver. A great pocket sized book that refreshed my knoewledge from University (having only left a few years ago). Would advise all to read regardless of teaching experience. It does make the reader reflect on current teaching and how you can improve your lessons. 'The X Factor' section was brilliant; providing useful techniques and tips. I shall be leaving this on my desk to keep looking back at to ensure I use it in my lessons.
