5.0 out of 5 stars A little emerald of a book', 29 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is a great little read for every teacher to hook their chops into. The writing is really accessible and it has a lot of workable ideas to help teachers take their practice forward. Currently ridiculously cheap on the Kindle, it is a really timely book for educators. Looking at using iPads or a BYOD scheme? Don't know your SAMR from your spam? This book will help you out. Well done Mark Anderson - a worthwhile purchase.

Dylan is the king of AFL and this book does not disappoint. It underpins the pedagogy with excellent research and ideas. This is followed by many practical ways to implement formative assessment. One of the must reads that should be a compulsory text for teachers.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read for Educators, 20 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is beautiful as it is useful. Bursting with ideas, each chapter requires deep thought and a bagful of notes to track the great ideas. Rarely in educational literature has an author spanned so much breath of pedagogy and ideas with so much precision and skill. A must buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Gem of a Book, 20 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As stated by the many positive reviews already, this is a brilliantly practical little book useful to any English teacher (and beyond). I thought the book was so useful I bought twelve copies for every member of our English and Media faculty. We have used it regularly and everyone is positive about it as a prized little piece of pedagogy perfection!

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy some Berger, 20 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This man is an inspiration to educators. Too little known perhaps, his prose is as artfully crafted as his philosophy. Lots of practical stuff, with a deeply rich philosophy at underpins his ideas. You will become a Berger convert and will want others to do the same - buy it and see!

Magnifico: The Brilliant Life and Violent Times of Lorenzo De'Medici
by Miles J. Unger
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars A Magnificent Biography, 10 Jan 2010
This biography is near flawless and brilliantly researched. Anyone with an interest in the Italian Renaissance would find this book a brilliant addition to their library. The life of Lorenzo really does match any Hollywood fiction and the great artists, popes and dukes are rendered by Unger with excellent detail. The biography is rounded and fair, whilst explaining the nuances of Florentine life and politics very clearly for any audience to access with ease. I can't recommmend this book highly enough!
