In ASBO Teacher Samuel Elliott offers no-nonsense principles hewn from the chalkface of the modern British classroom: ideas and approaches that have worked for the author in the most challenging settings and with the most testing pupils. He also provides a set of tips, tricks, and heuristics (rules of thumb) that he has gleaned from his ASBO apprenticeship, his close reading of contemporary educational research, and his first four years of teaching. Watch him introduce the book here.
For those embarking on a career in the inner-city classroom this book is surely an invaluable resource, an essential guide, and a compendium of ˜everything you need to learn about teaching that the establishment may never teach you™. I hope many new teachers educate and entertain themselves by reading it.
