Captivating Your Class Effective Teaching Skills


Captivating Your Class Effective Teaching Skills by Joanne Philpott

This book provides teachers with strategies and techniques they can use to develop their confidence in teaching A Level students. The strategies suggested will allow teachers to develop their teaching style so that the students will have a more purposeful, inspired and enjoyable learning experience.


How do you decide if an education book is successful? Two ways come to mind immediately - firstly whether you would recommend it to colleagues or not and secondly whether it makes you reflect on your own practice. This book has achieved both. It is an easy read, is structured with lots of ideas and has superb references...An excellent book indeed. --Sanford Lakoff 'A hugely usable text which would earn its space in any teacher's bookcase!'--Sanford Lakoff Joanne Philpott's very approachable 170 pages of advice, guidance, suggestions and self-reflective questions is timely. Based evidently on a wealth of personal experience as an Advanced Skills Teacher at an A level college in the United Kingdom, and her insights into others practice, Philpott provides a rich smorgasbord of practical support for colleagues.Applicable across all subjects, this volume would provide a useful focus to internal CPD, perhaps encouraging staff to share, and illustrate practical examples of personal variations. Many teachers will do many of the things Philpott suggests already, but to bring so many thought-provoking and practical suggestions together in one volume, at a time of significant curriculum renewal, is a welcome contribution to the literature. --Sanford Lakoff

Insightful reader reviews and unbiased recommendations. I don't know how I chose books before Lovereading! An essential for all book lovers.

Sarah Harper

The selections are so varied and the reader reviews are so helpful. A fantastic website for those who love books.

Ann Quintilla

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

Susan Walsh

If you love reading, then you'll love Lovereading! Full of tips & info for every discerning reader.

Lynne Rapson

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

Books of the month/debuts of the month, kids/adults, fiction/non-fiction, free prize draws and free extracts, what's not to love?

Emma Smith

My horizons have been broadened by some of the books I have been lucky to review and I expect it to be no different in the future.

Daran Bellingham

The books for review are always great reads, brilliantly written, and introduces me to a huge variety of, established and new, authors.
