How Not To Teach

by Mr Read
£13.99   paperback  Continuum (2006)

How Not To Teach by Mr Read If you thought reading Gervaise Phinn was like drinking a warm cup of tea, this book will knock you over with the force of a vodka slammer. Mr Read survives the nightmare of planning, Ofsted and an incompetent head... He also takes the class to Ireland, the House of Commons and wins a film award. We guarentee Christmas Lights, The School Trip and Stressbusters will make you laugh out loud. A searing indictment of our joyless, exam-ridden primary curriculum...
'I want everyone to imagine primary schools without SATs, league tables, Ofsted, strategies, wall-to-wall planning... Imagine - you may say I'm a dreamer but I'm not the only one.' - 'Mr Read'
Down-to-earth and outrageously funny, this guide will prove essential reading for all teachers everywhere.
'Mr Read' is a teacher in Merseyside. He regularly writes in the TES. Mr. Read's TES blog for this book
