Product description


`Ninja` Jackson is a well-known and much-loved educator, learner, teacher, and sharer of ideas. Inspiration pours forth from her like a fountain, a chocolate fountain perhaps, and catching the drops and putting them down on paper for us all to share is her aim in this book. The process is a dialogue, not a lecture: she wants to hear from us, to improve, to tweak, to learn and learn again. Her book is divided into a series of real-life questions, answered with helpful hints, think-points and resources to share. The sherbet lemon analogy refers to the gains to be had from working your way through to the soft centre of an idea or a practice. It`s hard, but utterly worthwhile. --Dr Robert Massey, Director of Scholars, Bristol Grammar School

Nina`s book is so refreshing- and just like the sherbet lemons it`s full of fizz! But don`t be fooled by the relaxed style and easy readability! This book is packed with some serious advice and guidance which will be of use to anyone working in a school. Whether you`re an experienced head teacher or just starting out as a classroom assistant I can guarantee you ll find plenty in here to make you think, to challenge you, to help you, and yes, even to amuse you on those difficult days. The user-friendly layout means it`s a useful guidebook for when you`re seeking help or inspiration in a specific area, but it`s also a book you can read through from start to finish and I`m sure you won`t put it down without being left with some great ideas --John Kendall, @RiscaCCS_Head, Risca Community Comprehensive School, South Wales

I recommend `Of Teaching, Learning and Sherbet Lemons` unreservedly to anyone who feels that their teaching lacks the fizz their students deserve. If you feel you spend all your time sucking the sherbet lemon, only to find that nothing lurks within. Jackson amply fulfils her aim of putting the inspiration back. --Stephen Oliver, Principal, Our Lady s, Abingdon
