Review quote

This is a highly relevant and accessible book. There is no `quick fix' when designing deep learning but this book provides a well thought through rationale and a clear a guide to that journey. Working through it empowers the teacher. It makes complete sense and will certainly feature as essential reading for my students. -- Simon Spencer Not only does this text offer suggestions for effective medium term planning (which are carefully exemplified through authentic cases) but it also deals with some fundamental questions about the nature of teaching, learning and assessment and the need to approach each of these in a principled way. This will clearly be a very useful book for beginning teachers. -- Trevor Mutton This is a book that deals with the important issues that teachers need to confront when planning for their students' learning over time. Not only does it offer suggestions for effective medium term planning (which are carefully exemplified through authentic cases) but also deals with some fundamental questions about the nature of teaching, learning and assessment and the need to approach each of these in a principled way. This will clearly be a very useful book for beginning teachers but it also has much to offer to those with more experience who are keen to look again at the nature of their planning and the possibilities that effective medium-term planning can offer. The book concludes with a timely `call to action' which, if properly addressed, could lead to teachers discovering (or re-discovering) the huge benefits for teaching and learning, as well as for developing an enhanced sense of teacher professionalism, that these approaches make possible. The book is written in a very engaging style that makes it accessible to the reader yet nevertheless draws effectively on a range of scholarship, as well as on the findings of the authors' own research. -- Trevor Muttonshow more
