At last....common sense, 9 Nov. 2012
Clearly this is a book written by teachers for teachers. Not only is it full of realistic and practical ideas, it is also designed in such a way as to save teachers time. It uses strategies such as "this chapter in a nutshell", frequently asked questions, further reading suggestions, and bright ideas (with credit to the teachers who used them!). As one who trains teachers for a living, I am already promoting the book to trainees and using some ideas from it to show them what teaching and learning should look like when it is good. This is the best book on the subject I have come across. Well done to the writers. I fully endorse their approach.
