Initially purchased for myself but found the content so relevant and stimulating that it has become a 'must read' for department leaders - we have purchased several more copies! Delivery was prompt, which has become 'normal' for Amazon.
Since receiving the book in the post yesterday, I have not been able to put the book down. It is now filled with post it notes and highlighted section. I can't wait to get into school on Monday and try out some of the ideas from the chapter about learning objectives (this coming from a person who had been feeling that Monday feeling everyday of the week lately). For me it has been a breathe of fresh air, simple yet effective. I will be using the 3 post it rule to introduce the activities I want to implement in my class. ( 3 post it rule, a simple rule explained by Ben Keeling in his book 'My School Improvement Doodle Book). I will also be recommending that the head buys a copy for all teaching staff.
Some good ideas to throw into the mix when teaching and show that you are assessing. It's clearly written and explained - unlike a lot of this type of book that I've read before and actually just dress up ideas that are impossible to use. It's is expensive but worthwhile whether you are a new or experienced teacher.
