Lots of easy to implement ideas. Quick fixes that will easily improve your practice. Appropriate for primary teachers with a little adapting too.

Clear, simple, useful and to the point. Have already implemented some of the ideas and have shared others with colleagues.

A great book. Whether a new teacher, student or a long serving teacher this book is really useful. I have advised my student teachers to buy it as it will help them develop their teaching. A book to dip in and out when needing inspiration to spice your lessons up a bit.

This is one of those gems that every busy teacher can own and dip into whenever inspiration is needed. These 100 ideas from the pen of an experienced school leader and passionate CPD enthusiast, can provide practical help in tuning up one's performance as a teacher. It's the little things that matter - and the author has itemised all those things that can keep a class on the edge of their seats and ensure a great response from learners. There are big ideas here too. The '5 Minute Lesson plan' is a stroke of genius, as is 'Bloom's Post it' suggestion.
I thought it was such an inspiring book I bought ten copies to drop off in schools where I am working as a consultant/trainer. This book is the modern day, Twitter-savy equivalent of Michael Marland's 'Craft of the Classroom', and there is much here to offer refreshment to anyone who has made that difficult job of teaching into their chosen career.

Was hoping for something with a little more meat; this is great fluffy reading for an NQT or someone who wants a quick flick, but there are better guides on practical tips for teachers out there.

I've been a teacher for 20 years and am always keen to look at new approaches.
If you are an outstanding teacher, you'll recognise your own already good practice, but there's no harm in re-reading and reinforcing is there?

Teachers can be a fickle bunch about seeking advice on teaching. We often don't have the time we would all like to reflect on our teaching, the guidance provided on CPD courses can be so cryptic as to be beyond any use whatsoever and then there is the sticky issue of if the person leading the CPD can still cut the mustard in the classroom themselves...

This book, 100 Ideas for Secondary Teachers: Outstanding Lessons, provides the reader with a plethora of tested ideas on a range of issues that we face as educators. From teaching to behaviour to questioning and even risk taking, the author, who is certainly still cutting the mustard in the classroom, writes with an easy to digest style and keeps each of the 100 ideas to key essential points.

The author covers his world famous 5 minute lesson plan and his Pose, Pause, Pounce, Bounce questioning technique and even embarks on a campaign to remove the "Shush" in lessons....Reason enough to make this book the top of your Christmas reading list.

As an educational consultant I was interested to see this volume by Ross McGill (Senior Leader and blogger with the Guardian newspaper). It's not a massive volume, but it is as it says '100 ideas for secondary teachers', and includes all the information that one should need to bring an added dimension to their teaching. The book is particularly useful for teachers that have lost their 'ed mojo' and are in need of a little sparkle. We all know how easy it is to get stuck in a rut and where you simply don't know how to tick those Ofsted boxes and your Senior Leaders start to feel like an enemy rather than the friend that they often intend to be. The book would also be great for newly qualified teachers (NQTs) that are looking to polish their skills and trainee teachers that are looking to hit the ground running. Certainly one for Santa's stocking, birthday, as a graduation or staffroom secret santa gift. For more ideas follow him on twitter @teachertoolkit.
