Product reviews for Making Every Primary Lesson Count

John Morris, Director, JTM Educational Consultants
This is an excellent book, within which  the authors have linked their extensive practical experience with a wide range of research material to discuss strategies to promote more effective teaching and learning. They focus upon what they consider tro be the six key features of promoting outstanding practice; challenge, explanation, modelling, practice, questioning and feedback.   Teachers and support staff seeking fresh ideas or new to teaching will find the text full of realistic practical ideas which are both challenging and supportive.

The authors have successfully linked the findings of researchers such  as Carol Dweck on growth mindsets, the Heath brothers on feedback, Michael Tidd on checking and marking, and Dylan William on formative assessment to their practical application within classroom settings.  In this respect readers will find the section on speedy marking to reduce the amount of time written marking of books takes an excellent pragmatic example to reduce workload.

Jo Payne and Wendy Scott have produced a book which should be  available within all centres of learning and teacher training centres with its wealth of ideas to promote outstanding practice.
