Product reviews for Powering Up Children

Aidan Severs, Deputy Head Teacher, Dixons Allerton Academy Primary
For those wanting to take their primary classroom practice beyond the nuts and bolts of teaching, Powering Up Children provides a great starting point - offering a wealth of ideas on how to build character in young children and develop them as learners who are motivated, confident, and curious.

Claxton and Carlzon detail an approach to teaching and learning that will make the most of a well-planned curriculum: configured to ensure that children not only have the knowledge they need, but can also use and apply that knowledge in a variety of creative ways. The authors also helpfully include examples from classrooms across the world to demonstrate the approach's core principles, and to point towards where this practice has been successful.

Powering Up Children is a book full of exciting possibilities for those teachers and leaders looking to move beyond the recent focus on passing statutory tests and towards a way of teaching that gives children so much more.
