Description

This is GOOD. Really, really extraordinary stuff. I don't think I've ever seen a similar book on education.

- Seth Godin

Tim writes with flair … A book you can read, dip into, come back to, and I can imagine these pages appearing on a student or teachers desk to inspire, contemplate, or react to.

- John Hattie

If you are after a compendium of detailed lesson plans, this is not the book for you.

If you want to hear from a self-professed teaching guru, this is not the book for you.

If you believe the road to being an effective teacher is paved with uncertainty, contradictions and mistakes…this may be the book for you.

Designed to be unlike any other education book, 88 Ideas to Teach More Effectively is packed with practical wisdom to encourage teachers to maximise their impact and be happier.

This book aims to challenge and inspire students, teachers and everyone involved in education, no matter what their background. All will find value in reading this concise and accessible book.

Combined with 88 entertaining, full-colour illustrations this book is basically a chocolate bar that’s good for you!

Topics include:

  • Hook ‘em early;
  • Forget being the favourite;
  • Teach sticky;
  • Say I don’t know;
  • Teachable moments;
  • Removing your emotions
  • You will feel terrible sometimes;
  • You’re not "just a teacher";
  • Don’t miss an opportunity.

88 Ideas to Teach More Effectively is an invaluable guide for students, teachers and newly qualified teachers who are wanting to reflect on their role and impact…plus, it has pretty pictures.
