Critic Reviews

"Through the use of vignettes, stories, and teachers’ own accounts, Harry Fletcher-Wood takes us on a journey, from the tokenistic adoption of assessment for learning that was so common in the Key Stage 3 Strategy, to a deep understanding of how we can make our teaching responsive to our students’ needs. I know of no other book that comes close to this in helping teachers really understand, at the deepest level, what makes teaching responsive to students, and how every teacher can use these ideas to improve their practice." - Dylan Wiliam, Emeritus Professor of Educational Assessment at the UCL Institute of Education, UK

"'I taught poorly for a long time,' Fletcher-Wood writes with humility at the outset of this outstanding and insightful book. He then proceeds to drill down into the details of design and decision-making, incorporating research and adapting it to the realities of the classroom. The result is a book that should ensure that teachers can reliably and sustainably help their students achieve the highest levels of success. I can’t recommend it highly enough." - Doug Lemov, author of Teach Like a Champion 2.0 and Reading Reconsidered and Managing Director at Uncommon Schools, USA

"This deeply reflective book is rooted in a careful consideration of the realities of teaching and learning in school. It determinedly identifies and explores six enduring problems of teaching and explores each with a rich combination of research evidence; personal reflection; confident suggestion and grounded example. This approach makes it a hugely useful resource for teachers and school leaders alike. Anyone giving this book due attention will find their practice challenged and enhanced. Harry Fletcher Wood's humbly expressed insights have the potential to transform learning for teachers and for children in our schools." - Jonathan Gower, Headteacher at Sherwell Valley Primary School, UK
