Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

If you buy only one book on metacognitive strategies for the last ten minutes of the

lesson this year, make it this one!

The Book of Plenary is the first in Phil Beadles ‘How to Teach series, in which he examines – in detail – every aspect of the modern classroom. The first half of this volume gives interested teachers a series of easy-to-set-up activities that make plenaries engaging and worthwhile.

The second half is a detailed and almost serious examination of metacognition in the classroom. It seeks to give teachers the stimulus to prepare and research plenaries fully so that they actively seek to develop the metacognitive experience, knowledge and self regulation of students. Distanced from glib ‘learn-to-learn programmes, this book engages with available research about metacognition and presents its relevance to the classroom in a lively, although sometimes childish, manner.

Phil Beadle is an English teacher and a former National Teaching Awards United Kingdom Secondary Teacher of the Year. He has also won two Royal Television Society Awards - for Channel 4s The Unteachables and Cant Read Cant Write. He is the editor/author of the ‘How to Teach series, a series of books which cover every element of classroom practice in a highly practical, but wildly irreverent, manner.

Synopsis:

The only book full of ideas for lesson plenaries youll ever need.

Synopsis:

This practical book 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 these ideas and students will leave the lesson with the information you have taught them still in their heads.
