Following on from the acclaimed The Lazy Teacher's Handbook, Jim Smith applies his lazy philosophy to flip the task of 'leading learning' to 'letting learning lead'. Covering all aspects of learning, including the planning of outstanding lessons, lesson observation, passing performance management targets and creating inspiring learning environments the book poses the question 'what would happen if you let learning lead?'. You might just find you enjoy your job more than ever as well as see a big improvement in the quality of learning and progress for your pupils.Based on Jim Smith's leadership work to improve learning (in a lazy way of course) this book is packed with highly practical solutions and suggestions that are proven to help you improve the quality of learning and progress but in a lazy way both in your classroom and across the school.

You paint an outside wall. It rains. What happens to the paint? It runs off, of course! So it is with our students. We teach them something. We can't be bothered to do the recap, the plenary, as we don't have any ideas. They leave the lesson. They promptly forget what you have taught them. There was no point their being in the lesson in the first place. The world continues turning. This practical little book of plenaries does what it says. It delivers a series of simple ideas for how to make your lesson endings - or mid-lesson recaps - interesting, engaging and cognitively challenging. Apply the ideas in this book and your students will leave the lesson with the information you have taught them still in their heads.

This brand new title in the 100 ideas series provides secondary teachers with an easy to implement list of revision strategies they can use in lessons. Each idea has been tried and tested and will have minimal preparation time for teachers; links will be provided to materials and proformas for teachers to use. The book will focus on strategies of effective revision which can be used to help prepare students for any level of examinations. These strategies can be easily implemented in lessons at any post Year 7 level, therefore encouraging students to consistently review and reinforce their learning. This consistent approach means that revision is built into a scheme of learning and becomes an everyday process rather than one that is just used in the run up towards examinations.
