I love this book! It is full of ideas for bringing lessons back to life, while still ensuring that progress is made. It is too easy to get stuck in a rut of the same style of teaching and it is so good to read about new ideas. I've never heard of most of these activities! I'm going to try a new activity a week starting tomorrow!
This is an excellent collection of ideas - both new and old - to ensure that the most able are stretched and challenged. It is really accessible and applies to any subject. It is so good that I am going to buy it for my whole department! Well done Mike!
Even as an experienced teacher, I've still found this book really useful. Despite achieving outstanding in observations, this doesn't necessarily mean that all of my teaching is always outstanding. This book gives you great ideas for ensuring that your teaching is consistently outstanding day in and day out. Would highly recommend it for even the most experienced teachers.
