Product description


Making Every Primary Lesson Count is a boon for all those interested in honing their classroom skills by finding out more about the science of pedagogy. It uses key research to produce a range of practical tips and ideas which have been used effectively in school settings. This book is both engaging and highly readable. --Will Ryan, primary education consultant, trainer and author

Using the familiar format of Making Every Lesson Count, Mel and Jo have brought a practical wisdom, rooted in primary classroom practice and experience, to this excellent book. A teaching manual full of invaluable guidance for primary practitioners, the values of excellence and growth have been exemplified in each chapter. Whether you are beginning your teaching career or looking to review and renew your practice, this book will help, support and challenge you in equal measure. Keep it to hand rather than at the back of your teacher s cupboard. --Stephen Tierney (@LeadingLearner), author of Liminal Leadership

Making Every Primary Lesson Count is a highly accessible, practical book for primary teachers with constant reference to relevant, current and powerful research evidence. Its framework provides an essential underpinning of what matters most: challenge, explanation, modelling, deliberate practice, questioning and feedback. The authors have taken all that we currently know about children s learning and woven it into highly practical writing. Each chapter begins with two real-life scenarios which are then fully analysed and developed. We are shown not only how key research informs us of how we need to teach, but are also given a range of well sourced practical strategies and ideas. The book has several threads which run through the writing: the ethos of a growth mindset and the importance of struggle; the framework of formative assessment; high expectations for all with no false ceilings; and the necessity of clarity, practice and modelling. These ideas, if followed, will go a long way to helping teachers, as the authors say, guide children towards independence . --Shirley Clarke, Formative Assessment Expert Associate, UCL Institute of Education
