Summary

Bloomsbury presents Just Great Teaching by Ross Morrison McGill, read by Ross Morrison McGill.  

Ross Morrison McGill, best-selling author of Mark. Plan. Teach. and Teacher Toolkit, pinpoints the top 10 key issues that schools in Great Britain are facing today and provides strategies, ideas and techniques for how these issues can be tackled most effectively.  

We often talk about the challenges of teacher recruitment and retention, about new initiatives and political landscapes, but day in, day out, teachers and schools are delivering exceptional teaching, and most of it is invisible. Ross uncovers, celebrates, analyses and disseminates best practice in teaching. 

This is supported by case studies and research undertaken by Ross in 10 primary and secondary schools across Great Britain, including a pupil referral unit and private, state and grammar schools, as well as explanations from influential educationalists as to why and how these ideas work. 

Ross explores the issues of marking and assessment, planning, teaching and learning, teacher well-being, student mental health, behaviour and exclusions, SEND, curriculum, research-led practice and CPD.  

This book inspires listeners to open their eyes to how particular problems can be resolved and how other schools are already doing this effectively. It is packed with ideas and advice for all primary and secondary classroom teachers and school leaders keen to provide the best education they possibly can for our young people today.

School Leaderships' Friend

The book covers a lot of ground; the breadth of coverage comes with plenty of practical, low-cost-high-impact suggestions, grounded in contemporary pedagogical research. It's great, and I'll be listening another one or two times to catalogue specific things I want to try out or research further. The tone is sympathetic to teachers, but doesn't shy from the responsibilities of everyone, individually and institutionally. It has helped me to reflect on my career to-date: reminding me of frankly embarrassing initiatives, but also helping me appreciate for the first time some of the better (in intention if not execution) initiatives. I feel both proud of our profession and motivated to improve. This book is honest, practical, well researched and highly recommended.

Excellent book however . . .

Must read for any educator. Physical book would allow review of specific sections when desired.
