Product Description


This book should be the guide for every middle school teacher, and will go a long way to launching a new breed of can-do, self-sufficient learners. --Colin Rose "Founder, Accelerated Learning Systems"

It is a superb toolkit. It has the right instrument for the right job and the teacher s task is to work out what the youngsters need. It oozes with practical suggestions, practical ideas and opportunites for young people. Enjoy it... and use it. --Professor Mick Waters

After reading through [The Competency Curriculum Toolkit], I am convinced more than ever that the development of PLTS is not a way to motivate, develop, engage, challenge and inspire young people, it is THE way. --John Jones writer, presenter and educational consultant
