A new title in the Bloomsbury CPD Library that focuses on maximising children's learning and development through a culture of high expectations.
Debbie Light is an Advanced Skills Teacher and an Assistant headteacher in a secondary school in West London. She is the co-author of Lesson Planning Tweaks For Teachers and is one half of @TeacherTweaks.
This is a compelling, persuasive, balanced and comprehensive book.
It is systematic and thoughtfully structured, moving from
considering your own practice to supporting and challenging others
to improve their own, as teachers extend their sphere of influence
from committed practitioner to inspiring leader. * Jilly Berry,
former Head, now Leadership Consultant *
This excellent book contains everything that busy teachers need to know about how to get the best out of all their students. A well-informed and eminently practical guide, which is as important for those new to the profession, as it is to those with years of experience in the classroom. * Phil Stock, Assistant Head, Greenshaw High School *
This is an invaluable and comprehensive book for both classroom teachers and CPD leaders. Debbie Light's book will definitely be my 'go to read' for clarity, innovation and a common sense approach to this topic. * Debbie Ferrer, Associate Assistant Head, Bentley Wood High School *
This is a great book to dip into to help teachers and schools form a positive strategy in developing stretch and challenge aimed at improving the outcomes of all students. The 'Teaching Plans' section is particularly useful for anyone who wants inspiration or guidance in developing practice, allowing for strategies to be developed in the classroom. * UKEdChat *
