Book Description

The award-winning teacher who starred in Channel 4’s The Unteachables helps parents worried about how their kids are doing at school

Synopsis

Phil Beadle is a former rock musician, the winner of the Secondary Teacher of the Year Award 2005, and the inspirational teacher who wowed the nation with his unorthodox teaching methods in Channel 4 series "The Unteachables". There, his bizarre but effective approach to teaching English included Punctuation Kung-Fu, and reciting Macbeth to a field of cows. Through techniques such as these Beadle seemingly achieved the impossible by successfully drawing out the desire to learn from a group of failing pupils. Now his focus is on spreading the word to parents: every child has the ability to learn, and to do better at school. In this book he tells parents that there is no such thing as a stupid child, only boring lessons. Intelligent, unconventional, humorous and inspirational, this hands-on guide blends personal anecdotes with the nitty gritty of how to best unlock your children's unique intelligence, and how to ensure they have the best possible chance to succeed at school.

Through unconventional methods such as these, Beadle achieved the seemingly impossible, by successfully drawing out the desire to learn from a group of disaffected, failing pupils. Now, in Could Do Better!, Phil’s focus is on spreading the word to parents: · Identify your child’s special learning style · Make homework fun · Discover how teachers award marks · Help your child revise for exams · And much more!
