Hywel Roberts, travelling teacher, curriculum imagineer and author of Oops! Helping Children Learn Accidentally
I really like two specific things about this book. The first thing is that at its heart is a list of six important principles: challenge, explanation, modelling, practice, feedback and questioning. The discussions around these educational touchstones create a very useful guide which transcends top tips and quick fixes - inviting the reader to think for themselves. The second thing is that it is written by two teachers at the top of their game. Jo and Mel have produced a book that avoids empty preaching and instead offers relevant signposting for the hard-working teacher of today. An important addition to the primary teacher's bookshelf.
