All teachers look to deliver inspiring, innovative and imaginative lessons. What better way to engage students and help them learn more effectively? Roy Watson-Davis draws on a deep well of creativity and on his experience as an AST and mentor to share numerous suggestions for original, inventive approaches to lessons. Use his ideas as starting points for your own brain waves, or import and adapt them for your own classroom. As well as creative starters, ‘kernels’ and closers, sections of the book are devoted to questioning technique, active learning, technology, revision and teamwork. Roy aims to stimulate and support creative practice by challenging you to move out of your comfort zones: try pegging maths equations across your room washing-line-style, or adopting ‘the fruit bowl approach’, or how about delivering a lesson in costume? Take the plunge, recharge your batteries and watch your students’ enthusiasm increase.

“In this Pocketbook Roy Watson-Davis provides the means of engaging and motivating even the most reluctant of classes. His ideas are smart, funny and, crucially practical. They should allow teachers to make a real difference to their pupils’ learning.”
Paul Rowe, Key Stage 3 Consultant, Dorset LEA

“Written in a non-patronising way by a highly respected classroom practitioner who knows his stuff, this sometimes humorous book never loses sight of the serious side of teaching and learning. What Roy has done is shown that teaching can be fun.”
Dr. Martin L. Parsons, BA. Cert Ed. PhD. FCollp. FRHistS Head of PGCE History and Geography, University of reading
