1.0 out of 5 stars Overhyped on Twitter, 23 Feb. 2014
This review is from: 100 Ideas for Secondary Teachers: Outstanding Lessons (100 Ideas for Teachers) (Paperback)
Ok for NQTs or those new to the profession needing tips.

I expected so much more from this book after reading all the hype online. There are better books on the market. Many that offer more value for money. I feel this should be priced no more than £3.
Perhaps my expectations were too high. I expected 100 T&L ideas to use in lessons. This book does not offer that. The tea drinking tip or speak with a different accent when teaching are hardly outstanding tips. Health & Safety rules in school ensure mugs of hot tea in corridors or classroom are not allowed.
I wanted more practical activities to move learners to outstanding learning. This book offers nothing new - a flash in the pan offering that will be out of date in 12 months when the teaching/learning bar is raised again.
As an AST I was not overly impressed & staff room debate over this book confirms this view.
