Reviews

"This is an excellent book on teaching and learning with an important message for the profession; that it is OK to slow down and take your time. In the frantic nature of the job it is often difficult to make the time to pause and focus on those things that will actually make a difference to what we do but this book makes the case convincingly that it is something we need to do." Mark Enser 'Making Every Geography Lesson Count' https://teachreal.wordpress.com

"Slow Teaching is an important book, which will help all of us to pause, take a deep breathe and take stock. I wholeheartedly recommend educators to read it. Slowly." Mary Myatt 'High Challenge Low Threat' www.marymyatt.com

"Each of the 21 chapters is clearly organised into sections and ends with a few questions to help the reader reflect on the content and how it applies to their situation. I was struck by how well thought through and expressed each section is; Jamie has a gift for getting to the nub of the matter. There are sections on Slow Talk, Slow Relationships, Slow Classroom Strategies, Slow Teacher Improvement, Slow Wellbeing and Slow Leadership. Each one is thought-provoking and refreshing." Sam Collins founder of www.schoolwell.co.uk.
