In some 50 odd pages, Tom Sherrington presents his view of the efficacy of Rosenshine's principles with practical examples across a range of subjects. If you have yet to read Rosenshine's principles, they are helpfully reproduced in full on the back and Sherrington's ideas will strengthen your understanding.

The book is therefore a mini handbook for great teaching. It is as accessible as you can get and even the most time pressed of educators will find time to absorb this. Every teacher can get

Helpful summary of Rosenshine. Concise, clear and effective with good examples from across a range of subjects. Worth the read!

I would give this 4.5 stars if I could.

Sherrington helpfully categorises Rosenshine's 10 principles into 4 groups, which makes it a whole lot easier to take in than the 2012 article.

Sherrington's conclusion that we should be asking ourselves not if we do this but how well is spot on - the principles are essentially the basics of teaching but both Rosenshine and Sherrington seek to extend the efficacy with which we do that.

Book 28 of 70 of 2019: yet another accessible book about Barak Rosenshine’s principles of instruction. Sherrington takes the 16 principles and distills them into four categories or strands. Mired in mind-brain practices, these strands will surely help any educator elevate their practices and promote high levels of student achievement. A quick, yet meaningful read for any educational leader!

Plenty to ponder as a result and plenty to incorporate into my teaching. Great worked examples too.
I just wish there’d been a greater focus on application to essay-based subjects as opposed to Mathematics the majority of the time.

Brilliant! A must-read for all teachers in all stages of their career!

A brilliant connection of theory and practice. Every teacher should have a copy.

Short and snappy. The hour spent in an inset hearing about this would be better served by reading it in about the same time.

Good but I had read it all elsewhere. It’s a very thin book too!
