This one day training session will explore the research evidence behind these six principles and share a bank of effective and sustainable teaching approaches that will improve learning in their classrooms.

Reviews for Making every lesson count’:

An excellent book based on common sense, research and evidence from their own classrooms. Allison and Tharby present an accessible framework based around 6 principles of effective teaching and learning. The book is highly practical and teachers from all contexts will unearth a number of useful strategies in it.”

I wish this book had been published two years ago so that I could’ve read it before my PGCE. I have read it once and already find myself going back to it to remind myself of some of the concepts. Each chapter is written so that a teacher can imagine themselves in the same position as so can accept the advice and guidance given. The ideas they give is useful and they have tried as much as possible to give ideas for different subjects, not just the core subjects. I wish school CPD was given like this with as much detail and ideas given for improvement.”

The clarity, precision, deftness and authenticity of this book make it an essential addition to any teacher’s professional library. The strategies suggested are grounded solidly in research and steeped in wisdom and experience.”

I have been teaching for 12 years. Long enough to see education fads and gimmicks come and go. This book is very different. It is based on real teaching experience and cuts to the heart of what makes really excellent teaching. No gimmicks. No quick fixes. Just good practice distilled. I wish I had this book when I started out teaching.”
