  • Superb for novice I and expert teacher

    This book has something for the new teacher as well as a teacher researcher for over 30 years. All too often books on education try to differentiate by being more and more esoteric that sometimes stretches one’s credulity.

    This book makes you say ‘yes this is grounded in reality’. Totally believable.

    Tom Sherrington has provided some excellent summary chapters that take us through the work of Rosenshine. I found these explanatory chapters themselves provided a guide to the essence of good teaching and learning.

    Then as a bonus we then have Rosenshire’s full work including his 17 points.

    This book manages to put so much of the craft of teaching and learning into relatively few pages. This shows that keeping the subject matter simple can still communicate so much for both novice and experienced teacher.

    I found the book an enjoyable and very informative and insightful read.

    Like many teachers, I have been aware of Rosenshine’s Principles for quite some time, so I was excited to hear Sherrington would be publishing a book about them. Rosenshine’s Principles of Instruction were written in 2010 and Sherrington notes their ‘potential to support teachers seeking to engage with cognitive science and the wider world of education research (p.5). Helpfully, this article is replicated in the book. The principles are, to me, a blueprint for effective teaching. Do them, do them well, and you are well on your way to being an effective teacher.

    The book seeks to summarise the principles of instruction, grouping them into manageable chunks – areas in which teachers can seek to tweak and improve their own classroom practice. What I like is that the book covers the research from Rosenshine (which, in itself, is comprehensive) and adds to this, providing practical suggestions on ways in which to develop the principle(s) within the classroom. The four strands are: sequencing concepts and modelling; questioning; reviewing material and stages of practice, and I found these groupings to be clear and helpful, with obvious connections between the principles each one contains. I also think it makes Rosenshine’s Principles easier to digest: while the original text is not at all complex to read, grouping in this way allowed me to see links between the principles.

    The text is clear and concise, in a lexicon which teachers can understand and with ideas and suggestions that can be practically implemented. The illustrations by Caviglioli add to the ease of reading. Also – it’s short. Without reading the Rosenshine text at the end, I believe it took me 90 minutes to read. Which, for time poor teachers wanting something to read to improve their practice, is a win in my book!

    Overall, this is a must read for anyone who has heard of Rosenshine's Principles and wants a clear, concise overview with some great practical tips for application.
