Product Description


There are so many ideas here that are guaranteed to improve the classroom atmosphere. I think absolutely every teacher will find something new and improving in this book. --Johnny Ball, Science Writer

Dave Keeling s vibrant and witty book blows a breath of fresh air up the backside of any classroom. --Matthew Gray, Assistant Professor at Carnegie Mellon University

Dave s approach motivates all students to think and learn and doesn t simply teach to the 20% who are already motivated. --Esther Sayers, Curator for Young People s Programmes, Tate Modern

Product Description

Are you looking for a creative opening, energising middle or big finish to a lesson? then just pick out a relevant game, exercise or idea from this wonderful book and watch the fireworks go. Failing that, just leave the room as you found it and head for your local hostelry where Dawn will be waiting with a patient ear, a packet of crisps and your usual. All the ideas contained within this book have come together over ten years of experience, working with thousands of students in hundreds of schools. Some are of Dave’s own devising, some have been donated and the rest have been simply nicked under the user-friendly title of knowledge sharing, but all have been deployed with one vision in mind which is to shamelessly entertain whilst at the same time engaging young people in the creative arena in order to prove, as Socrates the Greek philosopher once stated, “Life and learning should be a festival of the mind”.
