Product reviews for Guerrilla Teaching

Teach Secondary, issue 4.7, October 2015
Although written with teachers of primary school aged children in mind, this is a book with plenty to offer educators in any phase - because above all, it is a heartfelt call to revolution. Lear has had enough of false dichotomies and self-indulgent pedagogical debate; he has as little patience for political posturing; and he understands that 'creative' and 'direct' are not mutually exclusive adjectives when applied to 'teaching'. It's time, he insists, for those responsible for young people's learning to remember what's important, to trust their instinctive and experienced understanding of what is in the best interests of their pupils and to resist any attempt to introduce initiatives and strategies that go against it.
