Details

How do you embed excellence into schools' everyday practices, not as an incidental or an accident, but as an actual ethic?

Like the original book, this book is not a manual but what it offers is a thorough analysis of the Ethic of Excellence toolkit strategies, which can be applied across all ages and phases. The examination is placed within a framework of relevant research and is aimed at corroborating Berger’s strategies and ethics, as they apply to classroom practice.

The book, part of John Catt's In Action series, is written with the full support, and the ethical guidance of the author of 'An Ethic of Excellence: Building a Culture of Craftsmanship with Students', Ron Berger.

Each chapter exemplifies the active ingredients for each of the key principles and underpins them with evidence-informed practice and practical examples, from across the curriculum.

The book offers case studies and insights from senior leaders and teachers on what excellence looks like, within their contexts.

Whilst school improvement is never finished, the book offers a manual for identifying Berger’s principles of excellence. Through focused and evidence-informed offering, it considers how to make excellence as an ethic permanent across any school and any curriculum.
