I've just spent the day in bed (poorly) so I've read this book (recommended on Teaching a lesson at interview thread) from start to finish. Some thoughts others might find useful before buying: -It is mainly aimed at secondary teachers (particularly KS3), it is written by two secondary teachers. (Not so useful for us primary teachers but many of the ideas are transferrable. I would like to see a KS1 and 2 pimp your lesson book.....) -The style of writing is terrific- kind of mild blinging South London street style without losing its voice of professionalism. A really can do, fun attitude prevails with some excellent quotes to start each section. And jokes too! -I have highlighted some parts (yes, I am a bit geeky) BUT if you have been teaching for a few years and have a reasonable amount of CPD, none of it will be news to you. It's more like a refresher read in how to teach a really great lesson with everything in one book. However if you are NQT or a trainee teacher- get it- particularly if you are secondary. - It is not up to date with the new OFSTED framework, which is surprising and disappointing. It clearly sticks to the format of three part lesson (which we have been told is out of date??). Maybe that will be coming out soon? Hope this helps some of you who are considering buying it- it ain't cheap.
