You paint an outside wall. It rains. What happens to the paint? It runs off, of course! So it is with our students. We teach them something. We can't be bothered to do the recap, the plenary, as we don't have any ideas. They leave the lesson. They promptly forget what you have taught them. There was no point their being in the lesson in the first place. The world continues turning. This practical little book of plenaries does what it says. It delivers a series of simple ideas for how to make your lesson endings - or mid-lesson recaps - interesting, engaging and cognitively challenging. Apply the ideas in this book and your students will leave the lesson with the information you have taught them still in their heads.

In order to write well you have to know the rules. In order to teach the rules you have to know the rules. In order to break the rules you have to know the rules. It makes sense that a book on literacy should be well written. This is. The author of Literacy Across the Curriculum in the 'How to Teach Series' knows a bit about writing: he has written for every broadsheet paper in the UK, and is known for crisp, invigorating prose that appears, on the surface at least, to be effortless. In this book Phil Beadle shows teachers, and anyone interested in writing, the webbed feet paddling furiously below the waterline 'neath the apparently gliding swan; and translates this in such a way as to make it accessible to even the lowest attaining student. Filled with ideas and activities, Literacy Across the Curriculum gives teachers all the tools they need to transform literacy standards in their classroom, and will give teachers access to the rules they need to know without ever lapsing into dry didacticism.

Dancing about Architecture: A Little Book of Creativity is a compendium of outrageous ideas: ideas about how to take more risks, and about how to go about coming up with better ideas. Ideas about how to plan experiences that leave people who are in the same room as those ideas awestruck, and ideas to help you avoid the textbook, the worksheet the barely stifled yawn. From using The Book of Revelation as a planning device; to seeing every experience through the prism of physical activity or song; to measuring a poem to find its real heart; it outlines a methodology that, if you use it, will make you an even greater creative force than you already are.

Phil Beadle is a former rock musician, the winner of the Secondary Teacher of the Year Award 2005, and the inspirational teacher who wowed the nation with his unorthodox teaching methods in Channel 4 series THE UNTEACHABLES. There, his bizarre but effective approach to teaching English included Punctuation Kung-Fu, and reciting Macbeth to a field of cows. Through techniques such as these Beadle seemingly achieved the impossible by successfully drawing out the desire to learn from a group of failing pupils. Now his focus is on spreading the word to parents: every child has the ability to learn, and to do better at school. In this book he tells parents that there is no such thing as a stupid child, only boring lessons. Intelligent, unconventional, humorous and inspirational, this hands-on guide blends personal anecdotes with the nitty gritty of how to best unlock your children's unique intelligence, and how to ensure they have the best possible chance to succeed at school.

Primary maths is stereotypically loved by a few hairy oddballs, tolerated by most sane primary practitioners; loathed by many. With the right approach, however; the right mindset and sense of the impossible being achievable, maths can be moulded into the diamond in the rough of the primary curriculum. Enter Nick Tiley-Nunn: Britain's most imaginative, most exciting primary maths specialist. Over years of practice he has generated ideas about the teaching of maths that are so distinct, so far out and so utterly brilliant that any primary teacher struggling to grasp the nettle of teaching long division will emerge from communing with his ideas not just with some clichéd sense that 'maths can be fun', but that it can be brilliant, life-enhancing and truly hilarious. This book presents ideas for primary maths teaching so wildly creative and so full of the joy of life that any classroom of kids will be grateful you read it.

Don't Call it Literacy!

What Every Teacher Needs to Know about Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing

"Every teacher in English is a teacher of English," said George Sampson, one of the early school inspectors, back in 1921. It’s never been truer, or more relevant. Literacy has a major impact on young people’s life-chances and it is every teacher’s responsibility to help build their communication, reading and writing skills. However, this book isn’t just about literacy; it’s also about what great teachers do in their classrooms, about applying knowledge consistently across classrooms, in order to help pupils to become more confident in their subjects. This book shows every teacher – whatever your subject – the simple steps which could transform your students into better speakers, listeners, readers and writers. Harnessing a range of straightforward, but powerful techniques, it shows you how to help each student in your subject to improve their spelling, to use the key vocabulary of your subject more accurately and to speak, read and write with confidence like a historian, scientist, designer or mathematician. The book is structured into clear sections which are then divided into short, easy-to-absorb units on the classroom implications of what we know about literacy. Don’t Call it Literacy!also includes: language commentaries which exemplify points made by the author; talking points at the end of each unit for self-assessment; a glossary for non-specialists; subject specific vocabulary for building students’ word power; tutor time spellings lists; a reading list on teaching, language, literacy and education. Written by a leading authority in the field, this book will help both trainee and practising secondary school teachers to turn their classroom into literacy-friendly environments, increasing the motivation and achievement of their students.

Literacy and the Politics of Representation

Literacy is a key indicator for comparing individuals and nations in contemporary society. It is central to public debates about the nature of the public sphere, economic markets, citizenship and self-governance. Literacy and the Politics of Representation aims to uncover the constructed nature of public understandings of literacy by examining detailed examples of how literacy is represented in a range of public contexts. It looks at the ways in which knowledge about literacy is created and distributed, the location and relative power of the knowledge-makers, and examines the different semiotic resources used in such representations: images and metaphors, numerical and statistical models, and textual narratives and how they are related to one another. The book focuses on the UK from 1970 to the present, but includes a range of international comparisons and examples. In addition, exemplar chapters offer a model of analysis that can be used to deconstruct the representations of social policy issues. This book is vital reading for postgraduate students in the areas of education studies, literacy, discourse analysis and multimodality.

Oft traurig und doch voller Witz und Lebensmut — eine wahre Geschichte vom Erwachsenwerden und Überleben Liz Murray, aufgewachsen in der Bronx, Eltern drogensüchtig, mit 15 obdachlos, ohne Schulausbildung. Wie schafft sie den Absprung in ein Leben mit Zukunft? Liz Murray erzählt vom Erwachsenwerden, davon, wie sie ihre Eltern verliert und sich mühevoll ein Harvard-Stipendium erarbeitet, mit einer Sprache, die — anrührend und humorvoll zugleich — alles lebendig werden lässt. Schon als kleines Kind weiß Liz Murray, was es heißt, am Existenzminimum zu leben. Armut und Hunger bestimmen den Alltag ihrer Familie. Doch obwohl die Hippie-Eltern drogenabhängig sind, erleben Liz und ihre Schwester Lisa nicht nur Elend und Leid. Im Gegenteil, ihr Vater ist ein schräger, aber liebevoller Mensch, und er bringt seinen Töchtern bei, nicht auf das Geschwätz der Leute zu hören, sondern der Welt kritisch zu begegnen. Die Momente des Glücks sind dennoch kurz. Mit 15 ist Liz obdachlos, schwänzt die Schule und zieht mit anderen Kindern, die auch nirgends hingehören, durch die Straßen. Erst als ihre Mutter an Aids stirbt, wird Liz klar, dass sie so nicht enden will. Mit großer Willenskraft und einem Durchhaltevermögen, das sie selbst erstaunt, schafft sie mit 19 ihren Highschool-Abschluss und macht ihren Weg bis an die Eliteuniversität Harvard.

We hear too often that kids don't read any more: Kenny Pieper thinks it should be every teacher's mission to prove this isn't true. In a squeezed curriculum it can be tempting to accept pupils' lack of reading and make excuses that there is not enough time to devote to the 'luxury' of personal reading, but teachers do this at their peril. Reading is essential to literacy development as well as being a skill, hobby and habit that we can take with us forever. Kenny teaches kids whose lives are terrifying obstacle courses of reading-related problems. They know they struggle with reading. Everything that happens in their day-to-day existence reminds them of this. They know that not being able to read well differentiates them from most of their peers; it leaves them isolated and lost. They try to avoid reading at all costs. This is where teachers come in: their role is critical in giving all children the gift of being able to read well. Kenny also encounters pupils who can read perfectly well but choose not to, unconvinced of the importance of reading in their lives. What difference does it make to them? They have to answer that question in school. Teachers have a duty to put an end to illiteracy and aliteracy. Kids need reading role models and that role model is their teacher, who may be the only adult a reluctant reader will ever see reading. The benefits we can all reap when kids become confident readers who read for pleasure are obvious. Kenny Pieper has gathered a range of tried-and-tested strategies to get kids reading, and enjoying it. Discover strategies which will get kids talking about books, get them thinking about books, get them reading books, encourage independent reading, develop literacy skills and establish a classroom culture where reading is expected and celebrated. Suitable for upper primary and secondary teachers, leaders and SENCOs, or just anyone with an interest or a role in getting kids to read for pleasure.

In Feedback, Isabella Wallace and Leah Kirkman explore our understanding of what is often cited as one of the most powerful tools for enhancing learning, drawing together ideas from leading international thinkers and practical strategies for busy teachers. The Best of the Best series brings together – for the first time – the most influential voices in education in a format that is concise, insightful and accessible for teachers. Keeping up with the latest and best ideas in education can be a challenge – as can putting them into practice – but this new series is here to help. Each title features a comprehensive collection of brief and accessible contributions from some of the most eminent names in education from around the world. In this second volume in the series, Wallace and Kirkman have curated a collection of inspiring contributions on the theme of feedback and have developed practical, realistic, cross-curricular and cross-phase strategies to make the most of these important insights in the classroom. Feedback can be understood and implemented in the classroom in a whole range of ways, as Wallace and Kirkman’s practical strategies – based on the contributors’ expert insights – demonstrate. From these contributions, each unique and enlightening in its own right, a number of key themes emerge. One is the need to get the balance right between praise and constructive critique by keeping feedback specific, detailed and firmly referenced to clearly explained criteria. Another is that these same principles should be applied whether the feedback is from teacher to student, teacher to colleague, student to teacher or student to student. Response to feedback is critical: the need to give students the time to reflect on it, to question it, to act on it. Also important is the manner in which feedback is given: kindly, constructively, in a timely way and in an atmosphere of trust. Above all, whether written or oral, effective feedback is primarily about is clear, constructive and specific communication. Each expert has provided a list of further reading so you can dig deeper into the topic. In addition, the Teacher Development Trust has offered more useful ideas for embedding these insights as part of CPD. Suitable for all educationalists, including teachers and school leaders. Contributions include: Professor Dylan Wiliam – Formative assessment: the bridge between teaching and learning; Arthur L. Costa and Robert J. Garmston – A feedback perspective; Professor Bill Lucas – Feedback or feedforward?; Diana Laufenberg – Finding time for feedback; Paul Dix – Wristband peer feedback; Taylor Mali – The sound of silent tears of pride; Ron Berger – Critique and feedback; Andy Griffith – Receiving feedback; Professor Barry Hymer – Praise and rewards: danger – handle with care; Jackie Beere OBE – How can failure help you grow?; Mike Gershon – Target implementation time; Professor Mick Waters – Reward points for teachers; Geoff Petty – The quality learning cycle: feedback for significant progress; Shirley Clarke – Getting underneath the understanding and acting on it; Seth Godin – The four rules of peer feedback; Phil Beadle – Shut up, coach!; Teacher Development Trust – Next steps ...
