Making Every Lesson Count

MELCcover

 

Last July, Andy Tharby and I set upon a project. We wanted to write an accessible, readable book for classroom teachers, whatever their subject. We wanted to cut through the myths that surround education to focus on some core principles for teaching and learning that could be adapted to fit a range of teaching contexts. We wanted the book to be founded on strong evidence yet to not lose sight of the wisdom of experienced teachers.

And so Making every lesson count was conceived. The book looks at the practical ways ordinary teachers can foster a spirit of excellence and growth through everyday classroom practice. We have been helped along the way by many others from the edu-Twitter world – Dan Brinton, Pete Jones and Chris Hildrew have all written about how they have put the principles to work in their schools. Our friend Jason Ramasami has brilliantly brought the book to life through his illustrations.

We are very proud of what we have achieved and, this week, have received the first pre-publication reviews, all written by educators who have really inspired us. We have been thrilled by the response so far.  Their reviews follow:

melcreviewtomsett

melcreviewhelene

melcreviewquigley

melcreviewberry

melcreviewmyatt

If you would like to pre-order the book, due for publication in September, please click here.

Thanks for reading.
