100 IDEAS: QUICK - EASY - INSPIRED - OUTSTANDING
No notice inspections are something every teacher now has to be prepared for. This accessible new book provides strategies to embed into your everyday teaching to ensure your English lessons are consistently outstanding every day, whether you are being observed or not. Dip in and pick an idea to use as a starter or develop a whole lesson plan from the practical, step-by-step activities included.
The ideas will help your students develop strong foundation skills in spelling, punctuation, reading and writing as well as learning how to work together, listen to each other, give great presentations and tackle and analyse different types of text. But it's not all about work! There are strategies for inspiring in your class a love of literature and English by delving into a wide variety of texts - poetry, plays, novels, journalism and Shakespeare. There are also ideas to help you improve your teaching practice, tips on how to create the best learning environment for studying English and specific advice on how to cope with those dreaded Ofsted inspections.
