Following on from Kate Brown's bestselling Secondary Starters and Plenaries, More Secondary Starters and Plenaries provides busy secondary teachers with a brand new bank of creative, easy to implement ideas that can be used in any subject. The activities will help ensure the first five minutes of any secondary lesson are a time for motivation, energy and forward thinking and will help students to reflect on, and embed their learning at the end.

Step by step instructions, teacher's tips and worksheet examples make these 25 starters and 25 plenaries ready-to-use or easy to adapt for any lesson. This new book also comes with online PowerPoint slides and printable resources, giving you everything you need not just for planning your starters and plenaries but also for delivering them to your class.
