Important, knowledgeable voices in education ring out from all directions – voices of experts and practitioners who have devoted significant amounts of time and expertise to the education of young people. Teachers are notoriously dedicated, but also notoriously busy. Keeping up with the latest and best ideas in education can sometimes seem overwhelming – there is so much out there, how does a busy teacher know where to begin? It is equally hard to find time to reflect upon how to apply these ideas in practice.
The purpose of the Best of the Best series is to bring together – for the first time – the most influential voices in education in a format that is concise, insightful and accessible for teachers. This first title, Progress, features a comprehensive collection of brief and accessible contributions from some of the most eminent names in education from around the world. Isabella Wallace and Leah Kirkman have curated a collection of inspiring contributions on the theme of progress and have developed practical, realistic, cross-curricular and cross-phase strategies to make the most of these important insights in the classroom.
Progress is written for teachers, by teachers. Each expert has provided a list of further reading so you can dig deeper as you see fit. In addition; The Teacher Development Trust has outlined a collaborative group approach for teachers, as well as providing helpful guidance to school leaders on how to set up progress-themed CPD.
All of a sudden the continuing professional development voyage seems a little less overwhelming!
Suitable for all educationalists, including teachers and school leaders.
