Packed with practical strategies and case studies, Making Every Lesson Count bridges the gap between research findings and classroom practice. The authors examine the evidence behind what makes great teaching, and how to implement this in the classroom to make a difference to learning. Using case studies from a number of schools, the authors demonstrate how an ethos of excellence and growth can be built through high-quality classroom practice. Combining robust evidence from a range of fields with the practical wisdom of experienced, effective classroom teachers, the book is a must-read for trainee teachers, experienced teachers wishing to enhance their practice and school leaders looking for an evidence-based alternative to restrictive Ofsted-driven definitions of great teaching.
A toolkit of strategies that teachers can use every lesson to make that lesson count. No gimmicky teaching – just high impact and focused teaching that results in great learning, every lesson, every day.
