Slow Teaching is a thoughtful exploration of how slowing down in all aspects of education can lead to improved student outcomes. It evaluates how this slow pedagogy will result in improved feedback, more nuanced and skilled classroom management and relationships, meaningful classroom dialogue, retention of knowledge and school leadership with attention to detail. It explores how to slowly deepen the craft of teaching to grow expert practitioners who are committed to mastering their practice. It also reflects on strategies that will enable teachers to feel calm, confident and organised in a profession that can often appear relentless.
After twelve years teaching and working in leadership roles across the UK, Jamie Thom left the classroom in August of 2022 to set up and run the English PGDE at Napier University in Edinburgh. 'Talking to Teenagers' is his fourth book. He also hosts 'Beyond Survival: the new teacher podcast', a popular podcast for teachers at the start of their career.
