There are three actions that every teacher must do well. Provide feedback, plan lessons and teach their students. Packed full of evidence-based ideas, Mark. Plan. Teach., is supported by psychological perspectives to enable all teachers to develop their classroom practice to help make the greatest impact as possible on your students' learning; reducing workload and making the class domain, manageable and sustainable. In a landscape dominated with political hogwash, teachers in England continue to work the longest hours and be paid the lowest salary in OECD countries. Teachers' workload is at record levels, and despite increasing concerns that the government has any strategic plan for recruitment and retention, teachers are craving to source pragmatic ideas that work to help them survive and thrive in the classroom! Start with this book, by the bestselling author Ross Morrison McGill, aka @TeacherToolkit. It's time to take back control of the classroom with practical, straight-forward thinking. Backed with insights from leading psychologist, Dr Tim O' Brien, teachers can begin to understand how cognition, emotion and theory can be applied to teaching approaches to explain better, why teachers do the things they do; to extrapolate what works and how teachers can understand, the cognitive and emotional processes of students.
