Product description


`The Perfect Ofsted Lesson` picks up all the key Ofsted related points as regards an outstanding lesson. Jackie emphasises right from the off the most important point - it's about the learning! All the other key points are then covered very systematically - the engagement of students, high expectations, higher order questioning, use of assessment to support learning and using resources such as LSAs and lots more. Running through the text is the constant reminder that this can't be pulled out of a hat - it s a process and teachers need to develop and train their students to work in this way. --Gulshan Kayembe, Education Consultant and experienced school inspector.

Wow. What a book! Normally I put educational reading at the bottom of my to-do list but this held my attention from the front through to the back. I loved the way it was set out in steps, with very useful strategies at each step. The strategies are varied and do work. It has quality educational research behind it but is written in a very accessible style. It is a must for every teacher. The title is such a winner and the content really does deliver what it says on the cover. --Glen Alexander, Deputy Head teacher, Archbishop Ilsley Catholic Technology College

A concise practical approach to delivering the perfect Ofsted lesson the book builds upon the key characteristics of an outstanding lesson giving practical ideas of how it can be achieved and more importantly how this can be demonstrated in a short time to Ofsted inspectors. The format is clear and accessible and gives useful points for debate and discussion amongst teachers. This book is for all teachers whether new to teaching or an experienced practitioner it acts as an aide memoire for all to reflect on their practice. --Julie Summerfield, Headteacher of Horndean School
