The Art of Being a Brilliant Primary Teacher is a welcome addition to the excellent Art of Being Brilliant series. The authors have drawn on their combined experiences to write an inspiring text full of stimulating ideas, quotes and cartoon illustrations which stimulate thought and reflection. The text is well structured and the -˜in a nutshell', -˜thinking inside the box' and -˜top tips' sections all promote excellent ideas on such issues getting realistic feedback from students on the impact of teaching, strategies to reduce stress and escaping the trap of feeling overworked. The authors stress the importance of you as the teacher -rather than technology, facilities etc. - because -˜children don't learn from people they don't like'. An excellent book for all teachers, particularly those caught in the trap of negativity and those seeking realistic new ideas to move their practice forward to brilliant.
