Outstanding Teaching by In an era when schools and teachers often seem to operate at one hundred miles an hour, Teaching Backwards offers a more reflective and measured approach to teaching and learning. Where many teachers focus on delivering content in a linear fashion, those who teach backwards start with the end in mind. This means that they know in advance what levels of knowledge, attitude, skills and habits they expect their learners to achieve, they define and demystify ambitious goals, and they establish their students' starting points before they start to plan and teach. Teaching Backwards ensures that learners consistently make great progress over time, and offers a practical, hands-on manual for teachers to further develop their attitudes, skills and habits of excellence both for themselves and for their learners. This book is the follow-up to the best-selling Outstanding Teaching: Engaging Learners. It is based on the analysis of thousands of hours of primary and secondary lessons, part of Osiris Education's Outstanding Teaching Intervention programme over the last seven years.

Beginning Teaching, Beginning Learning by "This collection provides an excellent introduction to the practical skills which all student teachers have to develop but it also celebrates the unpredictability and excitement of working with interested, inquisitive children. [It] should inspire readers to see teaching, in universities as well as in classrooms, as the promotion of lively conversations between learners. " – Rod Parker-Rees, University of Plymouth "The second edition was invaluable and this is even better." – Yvonne Yule, University of Aberdeen The third edition of this highly successful text sets out to explore some of the wider issues to be investigated by beginning teachers - and those who support them - when working with early years and primary age children, while at the same time, exploring some of the delight and enjoyment in the teaching role. The book is organised into four parts - Early Beginnings; Beginning to Understand Children's Thinking and Learning; Organising for Teaching and Learning; Supporting and Enhancing Learning and Teaching - and reflects the current context of education and care by covering children from birth to 11-years. There are new chapters covering teaching assistants and interagency working, as well as children's independence and physical activity. Cameos and examples of practice in settings and classrooms help to illustrate the many different aspects of teaching. Comprehensively revised and updated throughout, this book is written in a lively style and offers guidance, encouragement and support for all those new to working in schools and other educational settings, and gives them the confidence to reflect upon, challenge and enhance their own learning and practices. Beginning Teaching Beginning Learningis essential reading for all students and newly qualified primary teachers.
