Packed with practical teaching strategies, Making Each and every Lesson Count bridges the gap between research findings and classroom practice. Shaun Allison and Andy Tharby examine the evidence at the back of what makes great teaching and explore how to implement this in the school room to make a difference to learning. They distil teaching and learning down into six core principles – challenge, explanation, modelling, practice, feedback and questioning – and show how these can inspire an ethos of excellence and growth, not only in individual classrooms but across a whole school too. Combining robust evidence from a range of fields with the practical wisdom of experienced, effective classroom teachers, the book is a complete toolkit of strategies that teachers can use Each and every lesson to make that lesson count. There are no gimmicky ideas here – just high have an effect on, focused teaching that ends up in great learning, Each and every lesson, each day. To demonstrate how attainable this is, the book accommodates quite a lot of case studies from quite a lot of professionals who are successfully embedding a culture of excellence and growth in their schools. Making Each and every Lesson Count offers an evidence-informed alternative to restrictive Ofsted-driven definitions of great teaching, empowering teachers to deliver great lessons and celebrate high-quality practice. Suitable for all teachers – including trainee teachers, NQTs, and experienced teachers – who want quick and easy how one can strengthen their practice and make Each and every lesson count.
