Product description


`Manglish` is much more than a mash-up of Maths and English and is not just for teachers of these subjects. `Manglish` is for all teachers, but especially those who work in a Secondary context and who realise the importance of developing students literacy and numeracy skills in context. In this book Lisa-Jane not only communicates the need for a new approach to the lower secondary curriculum, she shows how it can be done. Lisa expertly blends her easy to read, enthusiastic and encouraging style with real practical examples which make you feel that you could apply `Manglish` in your own classroom. As Lisa explains, any teacher could learn for her approach, but this book would be particularly relevant for school leaders who are looking for a practical way to incorporate the development of Maths and English skills across the lower secondary curriculum. Although primarily focused at English schools, this book would also be of interest to secondary school leaders in Scotland who are looking to more fully integrate the development of literacy and numeracy skills across the broad general education phase. --Fearghal Kelly, Teacher of Biology and Learning Coach, Preston Lodge High School

Who said English teachers couldn`t do Maths? Some only to be expected inspiring ideas from Lisa which will bring together all areas of the curriculum. Lisa encourages us all to be galaxies rather than stars with her big thinking behind Manglish. If you want to prepare your students to collaborate and solve problems that don`t yet exist, then this is a must read book. --Jane Hutchison, Assistant Head at Joseph Swan Academy

This is a vital and exciting new publication, which asks - and answers - some of the `big questions` about learning. It is in the very best tradition of educational thought, with important implications for anyone who will need to manage complexity in their thinking. Her ideas will produce many desirable outcomes, not least if they will read it among politicians.

`Manglish` offers an exciting and practical approach to the integrated curriculum which makes the seemingly impossible appear seamlessly practical. `Big questions` about curriculum are answered in manageable and differentiated small steps, which teachers can first imitate then create for themselves.

The `Manglish` curriculum - reminiscent of the best of De Bono and adapted by the author s own `teacherly` creativity - offers exciting potential for liberating teachers from the strictures of subject compartmentalisation and for creating pupils who are independent and confident thinkers, able to shape the real world in which they live as both experts and co-workers.

The `Manglish Mats` open the doors of a new perception, allowing teachers to `start from scratch` in designing a collaborative and multi-disciplinary curriculum without falling into the trap of forcing connections between subjects. They combine the best of `traditional` support and guidance with the potential for genuine challenge and creativity, in which pupils who are `hungry to learn` will develop `great minds ... see connections and ... shape our future.` --Kathy McColl, ITT Tutor
