    Teaching for Mastery

    In this book, Mark McCourt examines the history of a teaching for mastery approach, from its early beginnings to the modern day when cognitive scientists have been able to bring further evidence to the debate, demonstrating why a model that was first proposed in the 1910s has the incredible impact on both pupil attainment and attitudes to learning that it has had all around the world over many decades.

    Be More Toddler

    PUBLISHED DECEMBER 2019: PREORDER NOW

     

    The narrative around leadership needs to change. After reading scores of leadership books in an attempt to find a voice which resonated, Emma Turner realised that the bulk of leadership advice out there did not take into account balancing parenting with working in a leadership post. Inspired by the smallest of research subjects, Emma shares a practical, humorous and unique perspective on leadership by looking at it through the eyes of toddlers, illustrating real examples of what works, as well as reassurance that leadership is extremely do-able for many of us. This refreshing insight into leadership thinking and strategies aims to demystify leadership behaviour, encouraging us all to take the leap and ‘Be More Toddler’.

     

    REVIEWS

    ‘I salute her bravery, her honesty, her extraordinary ability to strip down complexity in order to uncover deep and wonderful insights into leadership, life and learning.’ – Richard Gerver

    'Emma manages to combine an incredibly engaging and entertaining style with important and practical messages, both for the profession and for the individuals within it. I wish I had been able to read it at a point when I turned my back on school leadership as the challenges of parenthood and the messy juggling this brings with it seemed too big a barrier.' – Professor Samantha Twiselton OBE

    Flipping Schools: Why it's time to turn your school and community inside out

    This brilliant book, focused on the education of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged children, offers a radical critique of traditional approaches to school improvement. The text argues for a movement away from the focus on social mobility to placing equity at the heart of school leadership. It suggests moving from improvement to social justice through a re-examination of the school's role in relation to its communities. The book is evidence-based and combines a focus on moral leadership with strategies to turn principle into practice.

    Stop Talking About Wellbeing

    Stop Talking About Wellbeing: A pragmatic approach to teacher workload

    As statistical figures of teachers leaving the profession reaches an alarming level, and teachers' mental health becomes a fundamental concern, wellbeing has been pushed to the top of the national agenda in a bid for schools to consider how to look after their staff.

    However, wellbeing has become a tokenistic feature within the education sector, as staff participate in compulsory wellbeing-linked activities that have very little impact on their workload or their ability to do what they came into the profession to do: teach young people. With this book, Kat aims to flip the narrative on wellbeing completely.

    In a critical consideration of research both in and outside of education, Kat explores the key factors of a teacher's role within school, outlining a series of tools that teachers can use to take ownership of their workload, and achieve wellbeing through purposeful job fulfilment. Interviewing experts in the educational sector, Kat provides practical strategies for teachers in a bid to drive instrumental change to workload within schools at a grassroots level, but additionally, a range of case studies for teachers to use to challenge the norm so that we can create a profession built to last.

  21. The Teaching Delusion

    The Teaching Delusion

    The Teaching Delusion by senior education consultant Bruce Robertson offers a bold, refreshing and sometimes provocative stance on teaching and leadership. Informed by the latest educational research and drawing on two decades of professional experience, Robertson examines how teaching in schools can be transformed from ‘good’ to ‘great’.

    The new title from John Catt Educational poses challenging yet important questions to its readers. Schools are filled with great teachers, but is great teaching taking place in every classroom? How can educators expect students to cultivate a lifelong passion for learning if they themselves are lacking this?

    Robertson’s solution is twofold. To promote excellent teaching, there must be a shared understanding of what high-quality teaching really is – what does it look like, and how can it be fostered? Secondly, there must be a school-wide desire to engage in professional learning. With his school having won the General Teaching Council for Scotland’s ‘Excellence in Professional Learning Award’ in 2019, Robertson uses his personal track-record of success to explore how these barriers can be addressed to lead to a transformation in teaching practice.

    Written by a teacher and school leader for teachers and school leaders, The Teaching Delusion aims to support teaching communities to develop and improve their practice, in order to ensure that all students receive the same level of excellent education. Aligning himself firmly on the side of teachers – and keen to avoid ‘teacher bashing’! – Robertson sensitively engages in an often controversial discussion about how to improve the quality of teaching, aiming to boost knowledge, awareness and ultimately self-esteem in both educators and learners.

    The Teaching Delusion combines practicality with pedagogy in a thoughtful, unique approach – making it a vital resource for teachers and leaders at all levels who are looking to better their practice.

    Good behaviour is the beginning of great learning. All children deserve classrooms that are calm, safe spaces where everyone is treated with dignity.

    Creating that space is one of the most important things a teacher needs to be able to do. But all too often teachers begin their careers with the bare minimum of training - or worse, none.

    How students behave, socially and academically, dictates whether or not they will succeed or struggle in school. Every child comes to the classroom with different skills, habits, values and expectations of what to do. There's no point just telling a child to behave; behaviour must be taught.

    Behaviour is a curriculum. This simple truth is the beginning of creating a classroom culture where everyone flourishes: pupils and staff.

    Running the Room is the teacher's guide to behaviour. Practical, evidence-informed, and based on the expertise of great teachers from around the world, it addresses the things teachers really need to know to build the classrooms children need.

    Bursting with strategies, tips and solid advice, it brings together the best of what we know and saves teachers, new or old, from reinventing the wheels of the classroom. It's the book teachers have been waiting for.

    Fiorella & Mayer’s Generative Learning in Action

    Generative Learning in Action helps to answer the question: which activities can students carry out to create meaningful learning? It does this by considering how we, as teachers, can implement the eight strategies for generative learning set out in the work of Fiorella and Mayer in their seminal 2015 work Learning as a Generative Activity: Eight Learning Strategies that Promote Learning.

    At a time when a great deal of attention has been paid to the teaching and learning from the perspective of effective instruction, Generative Learning looks at the flip side of coin and considers what is happening in the minds of the learner. This book takes a teacher’s-eye view of a range of theories of learning and keeps their application to the classroom firmly in mind through the use of case studies and reference to day-to-day practice.

    Generative Learning in Action also discusses key considerations and potential limitations of each of the strategies, as well as how you could implement these in your own practice and more widely across a school.

    This book is the next in a series that began with Tom Sherrington’s Rosenshine’s Principles in Action (2019).

    Fear Is The Mind Killer: Why Learning to Learn deserves lesson time - and how to make it work for your pupils

    For the last 15 years, Dr James Mannion and Kate McAllister have been working to design, implement and evaluate the Learning Skills curriculum - a systematic approach to helping students become more confident, practice, self-regulated learners.

    An eight-year evaluation with the University of Cambridge revealed that Learning Skills led to significant gains in subject learning, with rapid gains among students from disadvantaged backgrounds.

    In this practical guide for teachers and school leaders, James and Kate reveal a recipe for success rooted in three key concepts: metacognition (reflecting on learning); self-regulation (taking ownership over the learning process); and oracy (developing high-quality speaking and listening skills).

    This is a book about what happened when a small team of teachers seized an opportunity to provide their students with the knowledge, the skills and the confidence to take control of their own learning. This journey began with a question: how and what would we teach, if there was no one watching? On the other side of fear is the teacher you want to be, and the children you'd like to teach…
