Lesson planning is a requirement of every teacher. Whether you are planning your day-to-day lessons or a formal observation, planning is a skill that can be refined and improved to ensure your workload is manageable and your lessons exceptional. Aimed at committed and reflective teachers who want to develop their practice, this book introduces Tweaks for Teachers: small changes that make a big difference! It encourages you to review your current lesson planning practice and develop lessons that enable students to make outstanding learning gains. The book focuses on making practical, small changes that, over time, can make a real difference to the quality of learning and teaching in the classroom. Organised around real lesson snippets and full lesson plans covering every secondary subject, the book focuses on the key areas you need to plan for every lesson: assessment for learning, questioning, stretch and challenge and commitment to learning, as well as covering the importance of developing a good marking practice. Real examples of successful lessons are provided as well as a commentary of missed opportunities and practical 'tweaks' that could be made to improve students' learning and to develop outstanding teaching. This format means that the book is not only useful to those teachers wanting to develop their practice, but it is also a really useful training tool for those with responsibility for training new teachers or devolving a school's CPD provision. Lesson Planning Tweaks for Teachers takes a highly original approach to improving your lesson planning. Mel and Debbie's down to earth and accessible style will help every secondary teacher, whatever your level of experience, to make the planning process more meaningful and manageable, and one that leads to outstanding progress over time.

In the past schools have labelled the most able students in a class or year group as 'gifted and talented'. While segregating these students may help them to achieve their academic potential, there is little benefit in this practice for their 'less able' classmates. Even less so for those who are left in the middle space, identified as neither highly academic nor severely struggling. The Stretch and Challenge model focuses on setting high expectations for all students, regardless of their ability. Encouraging all children to meet universally high targets introduces flexibility between, otherwise rigid, ability groups, and gives children greater opportunities to exceed. Split into two parts, Stretch and Challenge focuses on different ways of thinking about and implementing this model in school. Debbie Light begins by helping teachers to create a culture of high expectations in their classroom by setting challenging learning objectives, creating opportunities for students to develop independence and supporting students, as they become resilient learners. The second half of the book advises teachers how to create an inclusive learning environment where all children feel challenged by encouraging teacher questioning, designing tasks, grouping students and effectively using teaching assistants. Filled with honest, experienced and undeniably helpful advice, Debbie Light's Stretch and Challenge is a must have guide for all teachers who want to collectively maximise their students' learning and achievement. The book provides a set of ready-to-use training plans to help you train your colleagues and is accompanied by PowerPoint slides available to download online for free. It offers 19 hours of CPD, equating to a cost of just £1.20 per hour of training!

Martha Boyne, Emily Clements and Ben Wright’s Thrive: In your first three years in teaching equips trainee secondary school teachers with the know-how to lay the foundations for a successful career in teaching, long after the challenging first few years are over. Martha, Emily and Ben are thriving teachers. In Thrive they share their personal experiences and demonstrate how you too can thrive during the tricky training year, the daunting NQT year and the crucial RQT year. Using their collective insights, and plenty of evidence-informed strategies and advice, they detail how you can get to grips with the classroom basics – from behaviour management and lesson planning to differentiation and providing for SEND – and effectively continue your professional development. This book is not just a survival manual to help teachers get through their first three years in teaching. Nor is it an academic text that has been written by authors who have only a distant memory of what it takes to stand in front of a class of teenagers for the first time. Thrive is something very different. It gives both the aspiring and the newly qualified the support and guidance to become a thriving teacher, and has been co-authored by three recently qualified teachers who in this book invest their passion and practical knowledge to inspire and inform others who want to pursue enjoyable and rewarding careers in teaching. Thrive is divided into three parts – specifically detailing what can be expected in the training year, NQT year and RQT year respectively – with the authors’ commentary threaded throughout to demonstrate how the ideas discussed can be successfully put into practice. Their accounts are also complemented by expert advice from two people who are at the very top of their profession, Lianne Allison and Dr Simon Thompson, who provide wider perspectives drawn from a wealth of teaching experience. Forty of the book’s forty-six chapters begin with a checklist outlining what a developing teacher is expected to do, and each chapter ends with a to-do list that can be used as a quick reference point to structure the strategies implemented. These to-do lists are also followed by lists of suggested further reading so that readers can delve deeper into topics and fields of research that they find particularly interesting or relevant. Furthermore, the book offers helpful counsel on choosing the best training route as well as an in-depth analysis of the change in priorities for busy teachers as they progress: encouraging constant reflection, outlining potential pathways and emphasising the importance of evidence-based practice and how new teachers can, and should, incorporate this into their teaching. Rooted in practical strategies and innovative ideas, Thrive is the essential guide for trainee secondary school teachers and teacher trainers.

Improving teaching is the key to genuine and sustainable school improvement. Improvement involves persuading teachers to change and develop their practice but, as anyone who has ever tried will testify, this is far from easy. The focus of Tweak to Transform is what head teachers and school leaders can do to manage the change process and improve the quality of teaching in a school. Essentially, Tweak to Transform is a practical handbook that seeks to address three questions: - What do we know about change? - What do we know about learning? - What do we know about leading and managing the improvement process? While there is no single successful recipe for improving teaching in a school, this book attempts to establish some key principles. The result is a collection of thoughts, activities strategies and models that have been developed and successfully implemented in a wide range of schools.

This book contains thought-provoking essays on teaching and learning: · Who is in charge of lesson plans and of organizing classroom activities? · Who places students in classes? · Who selects the books and the tests? · How are students evaluated, and who determines this? · What weight does teacher opinion have in decisions about student progress in school? Teachers should have the final say in all of these cases, and their opinion should weigh heavily in all of them, yet this is not the reality for today’s teachers. Current educational practices driven by a confluence of social and political issues, including testing policies, seem to be influencing teaching and learning more than teachers themselves. The essays in this book consider many serious issues facing today’s teachers and urge teachers to seek common ground with others in the field of education. The book also urges teachers to become reflective practitioners, seeing themselves as theorists, philosophers, action researchers, and political activists. Common Ground, Contested Territory is an inspiring book for all teachers.

Make sense of state and national standards across the disciplines. Align them to your curriculum and classroom practices. Andachieve the greatest student success. In these politically charged times, the mere mention of standards often leads to heated discussion, misinterpretation, and confusion. On top of that, teachers must design standards-based units using a process that's cumbersome, difficult, and time consuming. But no more. Here's the first "how to" book for standards-based education. In it, former principal Janet Hurt looks at standards from a practical point of view, offering teachers step-by-step procedures for analyzing, interpreting, and integrating standards into their teaching, whatever the discipline. Hurt bases her book on the work of hundreds of teachers who wanted to align their curriculum into something more than a list of content and skills. Through compelling examples, she demonstrates that teachers can actually use standards (even substandard ones) to the benefit of both themselves and their students. Read Hurt and learn how to: examine standards to identify the conceptual learning embedded within, beneath, behind, and beyond them select relevant topics that nudge students toward a deeper understanding of "umbrella concepts" design a standards-based skeleton unit based on what we know about how students learn guide incremental student expectations and questions that help focus each unit design a standards-based curriculum map that is a by-product of developing units and higher-level concepts, not isolated topics tame standards by usingthem to teach to a higher level. A must-read for all educators who deal with high-stakes accountability, standards-based education, professional development or training new teachers.
