Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This book contains a lot of value, and its sizeable "small telephone directory" size would be a reassuring presence on the shelves of a newly qualified teacher, or someone entering the profession for the first time.
It's a product from the United States, so is keyed into American Grades, but I think it would be useful for anyone working in the 14 to 16 British school. I'm predominantly and A-level teacher, so I might have slightly biased opinion. I'm not aware of the original book for which this is the Field Guide but in essence the author gives a very useful list of 49 key tips to improve your classroom performance. Most of these are very practical and are geared to the creative generation of informed, independent responses in oral work, and also centralising active independent writing. And again, to repeat myself there is a great deal here of value. If you have been in the profession for some time, you might find some of the "tips" a little more on the basic side... I'm going to randomly select three of them to illustrate the range the book covers.

Technique 8 is "Post It"-the description of this is "... displaying your lesson plan objective where others can see it, in the same location every day, so that everyone who walks into the room, student, peers and administrators-can identify your purpose". Totally reasonable tip, very sensible, good professional practice, but unlikely to be a great revelation to anyone who is faced OFSTED within the last five years. Technique 21 is "Take a Stand" which is described as "... getting students to take a stand (express a judgement) on answers that other students in the class have given.

This is an interesting exploration of a variety of techniques that can be used in the classroom. It is, however, very US orientated and I will warn that it also seems to be aimed more at teaching at secondary level ... so if you are teaching younger children beware - whilst techniques can be adapted it may not be as useful as you would like it to be.
One thing I will say is that while this gets you thinking about your approach it is no substitute for all your years of training and hard-earned experience. Nothing will match your own knowledge of your pupils and your intuition.
Good at making you think and provides some nice ideas but don't think it will provide you with a magical solution to classroom/teaching difficulties.

Format: Paperback
A logical step by step guide to implement each of the 49 techniques. There is a chapter on each technique with suggested activities and pages to record your reflections and ideas. It is a good way to organize your thoughts and to help guide you to improve your practice. This book is for recording your ideas and to document your progress rather than learning more of the theory behind the techniques.

Video clips on the disk are very helpful and show examples of excellent practice.

The map showing which techniques are complementary is very useful.

But... unless you are just starting out in your career or you are new to reflective practice I would not really recommend this field guide. Just buy the original book as its fab and has had a huge impact on my practice and everyone else I got to buy a copy, this one however could be simply replaced by a reflective diary.

Buy the original book to go with this one or instead of buying this one. The field guide can be used alone but it lacks the clarity of the original Teach Like a Champion book.

When you pick up this large format paperback book, it feels like it is worth buying! Inside is a DVD which has a very helpful set of video clips that support and demonstrate the techniques used in the book. This volume is really a workbook that supports and expounds the original book written by the author. However this volume can be used without the original in a very hands-on fashion.
The only negative aspect is that the language and video clips are American, and there are some things that would not be acceptable in a British school, but this does not overly detract from the good practises demonstrated.
The techniques detailed support a modern pedagogy and there will be something that every teacher can take on board. It is particularly good at demonstrating practical ways of improving your questioning technique.
Overall I must recommend this book as a refreshing source of ideas for improving the delivery of lessons for any teacher. For British teachers this man is clearly the American equivalent of a Dylan Wiliam, except his ideas are perhaps a little more orthodox.

This offering like so many in the field of education comes from the USA and as such requires the reader to undertake some translation for the UK educational environment. That said this element is relatively non-intrusive allowing the reader to delve headlong into the texts' many tips and techniques that potentially offer a great deal for the new teacher, or indeed lecturer, seeking to acquire a 'toolbox' of techniques to help learners gain good results in the subject area that they are teaching. This applies in the main to children and young adults but the material can be easily be adapted to the lecturer working in the adult learning environment. As such I would recommend it to anyone undertaking a PGCE or CertEd as the material will support the practical components of the teaching observations - good luck with those - and in this context the text can be used to supplement other books such as Phil Race's excellent text 'The Lecturer's Toolkit'. Those considering the move to undertake QTLS will find it similarly stimulating.
All in all the strength of this text is in helping one develop the rightly fundamental skill of practical teaching in the classroom environment. What it won't do so well if at all is support the development of ICT and other contemporary themes in the education. However even in this context there are ideas for the use of quizzes which of course can be simply adapted for use in the virtual learning environment. I give the book four stars, only dropping it one star due to its American orientation which naturally makes it less accessible to the UK educator for obvious reasons. On the whole though, excellent!
I have included a link to the Phil Race book for anyone interested in considering the two together. The Lecturer's Toolkit: A Practical Guide to Assessment, Learning and Teaching
