A really comprehensive book that keeps things simple - six strategy strands that should be used in any classroom. Experienced teachers may feel that some sections are teaching granny to suck eggs, but this is a great resource for NQTs and teachers early in their career, as it makes explicit what those with experience implicitly do.

This was a reasonable book which ended up covering quite a lot of professional tips and tricks for "supporting great teaching".

Being quite fresh into the profession there were quite a lot of repetitions from things I had heard in my training year but, on the other side of the coin there were some good points that were worth re-iterating. I can imagine that if you've been in the profession some time and are seeking some fresh help that this is a good place to turn to.

There was quiet a focus of En
