Excellent teaching resource
on 12 October 2013
This book is different from many others on teaching, for it presents ideas that can be quickly incorporated into lessons. They don't require lengthy making of resources, nor rely on certain relationships with pupils. Ross includes quick and easy to implement tips on making a class more productive, receptive and controlled, thus optimising the learning of the pupils. This comes as no surprise given Ross' background in Design and Technology - I think teachers many subjects can learn a lot from his expertise in organisation and discipline.
There is also a lot of references to the Internet and where to find out more about the ideas. Like any outstanding lesson, the book is differentiated for all.
I recommend this to anyone and to use the tried and tested techniques the very next day, or even hour!
