Bloomsbury presents Just Great Teaching by Ross Morrison McGill, read by Ross Morrison McGill.  

Ross Morrison McGill, best-selling author of Mark. Plan. Teach. and Teacher Toolkit, pinpoints the top 10 key issues that schools in Great Britain are facing today and provides strategies, ideas and techniques for how these issues can be tackled most effectively.  

We often talk about the challenges of teacher recruitment and retention, about new initiatives and political landscapes, but day in, day out, teachers and schools are delivering exceptional teaching, and most of it is invisible. Ross uncovers, celebrates, analyses and disseminates best practice in teaching. 

This is supported by case studies and research undertaken by Ross in 10 primary and secondary schools across Great Britain, including a pupil referral unit and private, state and grammar schools, as well as explanations from influential educationalists as to why and how these ideas work. 

Ross explores the issues of marking and assessment, planning, teaching and learning, teacher well-being, student mental health, behaviour and exclusions, SEND, curriculum, research-led practice and CPD.  

This book inspires listeners to open their eyes to how particular problems can be resolved and how other schools are already doing this effectively. It is packed with ideas and advice for all primary and secondary classroom teachers and school leaders keen to provide the best education they possibly can for our young people today.

This great book is a MUST read for all who work in Education. Clear and easy to read straight forward advice, with real (UK) examples of how the practice works in primary, secondary, post 16 and alternative provisions. This book has received high praise from Education experts and new teachers alike. While aimed at teachers, everyone who works in education would find this book of some use. All the advice is real-world (education) stuff, and is not pie in the sky. All advice is very achievable even in provisions that work with the most troubled…

An engaging, helpful, very relevant book. This is a really helpful and informative book for educators of all ages. Its format is highly accessible and can be dipped into according to needs and priorities at any given time. Its recent publication date also means that it contains very helpful advice relevant to the new Ofsted Framework, particularly in the chapter on curriculum. I very much enjoyed the personal anecdotes, case studies and the ‘expert’ commentaries at the end of each chapter. I would highly recommend.
