Packed with practical strategies, Making Every Lesson Count
bridges the gap between research findings
and classroom practice. Shaun Allison and Andy Tharby examine the evidence
behind what makes great teaching and explore how to implement this in the
classroom to make a difference to learning. They distil teaching and learning
down into six core principles – Challenge, Explanation, Modelling, Practice, Feedback,
and Questioning – and show how these can inspire an ethos of excellence and growth, not only in individual classrooms but across
a whole school too.
Combining robust evidence from a range of fields with the
practical wisdom of experienced, effective classroom teachers, the book is a
complete toolkit of strategies that teachers can use every lesson to make that
lesson count. There are no gimmicky ideas here – just high impact, focused
teaching that results in great learning, every lesson, every day.
