Everyone knows a teacher or an aspiring teacher. What would they possibly like to receive for Christmas, this year? A Christmas card? A chocolate box? A gift card? A colourful scarf for this winter?
Well, let’s be a little bit more original this year and get them a fantastic book that was just released today, written by British Teacher Amy Sargent. It is full of great ideas and suggestions to become an outstanding teacher!
Most teachers will admit they are like magpies, always looking for some new and shiny teaching ideas to apply in their classroom. They cannot go to a budget shop without buying something they think they could adapt in their classroom. They always look for inspiration, an idea to steal or adapt to engage their students.
This guide does just that. Contrary to other books in education that are usually dry academic encyclopaedias full of boring and sometimes unnecessary literature, this book will just fire teachers’ imagination with its thought-provoking style. It has all the ingredients they need to deliver an outstanding lesson. It provides both aspiring and current teachers with suggestions, ideas and techniques to incorporate in their lessons, which capture the importance of mind-set and creativity.
What more? The strategies are suitable for any level of teacher, any year group and any subject, because there is nothing worse than buying a book and finding that all the strategies are only really suited to one particular subject. Teachers can therefore simply dip in and out whenever they feel they need to refresh their classroom practice.
The author of the guide is a passionate and highly skilled teacher whose commitment and dedication to her students’ learning are admirable. Miss Sargent is focused on providing her students with outstanding lessons, which led her to be awarded a certificate of special recognition in the category of “Outstanding New Teacher of the Year” in the Essex Teaching Awards 2014.
This is definitely THE guide every good teacher who care about their students needs, to join the fantastic journey to becoming outstanding teachers with outstanding learners!
