Product reviews for Talk-Less Teaching

Phil Beadle, Teacher and Author
Isabella and Leah are both trained, qualified and experienced teachers, and it shows. This intelligent and rather well-written book sees learning through the eyes of the learners, and presents a range of strategies and arguments as to why teachers should continue to do so. It is balanced, without evident bigotry, and is rather better argued than the contentions of less experienced teachers who feel that, after a two year stint of class tourism, they can assert from an imagined superiority that talking is teaching. It isn't. Teaching is vastly more complicated than just turning up and pontificating. This book knows that and has some cracking ideas to help you turn away from the politically influenced idea perpetrated by blind pawns that boring children is educating them.
