`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

Great innovative ideas which are transferable to post 16.
There will be countless books, programmes and advisors out there that can show a route to promote this educational ideal, but I am not entirely sure that they will have the same level of clarity and 'grounding' that is shown in this book. It avoids over complicated jargon or detailed theory and gives an impression of the classroom that is positive and child focussed.
Whilst not yet finished, I would recommend this book to teachers who wish to improve their practice, SLs who wish to ensure compliance with government agenda and school improvements linked to this area and Senior Leaders who need to remind themselves that books such as this are typical of individual passion, hard work and commitment.
