In the past few years, the way we think about assessment has undergone a revolution. From the re-organisation of qualifications and examinations at national level (including removing National Curriculum levels at secondary school) to the increasing focus on active research to develop feedback strategies with a measurable impact, assessment has never been so much at the forefront of educational thought. While previously assessment was bound to the curriculum, now there is a demand for schools to develop assessment systems that are merely driven by it. Despite raising serious questions and challenges, these dramatic changes provide a reason for teachers to evaluate their practice. Simultaneously, the nature of CPD has been reinvigorated in the 'digital age', with teachers galvanised by online resources, Twitter and educational blogs. The result? Teachers can take their development into their own hands, and re-professionalise teaching! Bringing together these two movements, this book provides an opportunity for teachers to grasp what formative assessment means, how it complements the curriculum when used effectively, how to employ it in their classroom and school, and how they can improve their assessment systems and practice within the classroom. Divided into two parts, train yourself and teach others, this book will dispel concerns, and help teachers and school leaders to embrace and excel in all areas of formative assessment!

Brand new title to launch the Bloomsbury CPD Library, a new series of books that provides primary and secondary teachers with affordable, comprehensive and accessible 'do-it-yourself' continuing professional development (CPD). Marking and Feedback is a key area that every primary and secondary teacher must excel in. This book is a full guide to marking and feedback and will help teachers assess what level they are currently at and highlight the areas they need to improve. It provides an introduction to the main marking and feedback approaches and theory as well as practical ideas to use in the classroom straight away. There is also a strong focus on long-term development and progression of practice with evaluation strategies and questionnaires. The book is split into two sections: Train yourself and Train others, so it can be used by individual teachers to improve their own practice as well as by those looking for CPD training plans - either for a one off session, or a whole school programme. Books will be available in full paperback and ebook version, as well as in 2 seperate ebooks: Train yourself and train others. All of the authors will be specifically chosen because they are experts in their fields and because they are still working in schools. Every title will therefore be full of really up to date and original ideas, practical advice and achievable aims. The aim of the series will be to include the reader in a network of experts and teachers sharing ideas and working together to continually develop and improve.

In the past schools have labelled the most able students in a class or year group as 'gifted and talented'. While segregating these students may help them to achieve their academic potential, there is little benefit in this practice for their 'less able' classmates. Even less so for those who are left in the middle space, identified as neither highly academic nor severely struggling. The Stretch and Challenge model focuses on setting high expectations for all students, regardless of their ability. Encouraging all children to meet universally high targets introduces flexibility between, otherwise rigid, ability groups, and gives children greater opportunities to exceed. Split into two parts, Stretch and Challenge focuses on different ways of thinking about and implementing this model in school. Debbie Light begins by helping teachers to create a culture of high expectations in their classroom by setting challenging learning objectives, creating opportunities for students to develop independence and supporting students, as they become resilient learners. The second half of the book advises teachers how to create an inclusive learning environment where all children feel challenged by encouraging teacher questioning, designing tasks, grouping students and effectively using teaching assistants. Filled with honest, experienced and undeniably helpful advice, Debbie Light's Stretch and Challenge is a must have guide for all teachers who want to collectively maximize their students' learning and achievement.

Contemporary education is held captive by an obsession with assessment. The culture of 'teaching-to-the-test' and 'spoon-feeding' has distorted the purpose of teaching and destroyed the joy of free enquiry. This book offers practical advice on how to use philosophy as the cornerstone of a new approach to teaching and learning, with the central aim of developing students' capacity for deeper, freer thought. Drawing on his experience of innovative curriculum development work, the author explains how philosophical questions provide an excellent vehicle for engaging students and drawing them into analytical, creative and independent ways of thinking. Think Again provides: • activities for encouraging critical and creative thinking, • examples of 'entry points' for integrating philosophy in a formal curriculum; and • practical guidance on using philosophy to enliven learning in a range of subjects. The author emphasizes the significant opportunity that project work provides for enabling students to develop their research and analytical skills, and suggests how the 13+ curriculum could be developed to bring a philosophical dimension to learning in all subject areas.

Independent learning is an ideal which many teachers aspire to but find difficult to achieve. This book provides ten training plans that enable you to easily deliver hours of CPD sessions in your school. All presentations and hand-outs are provided in the book and online, making Bloomsbury CPD Library: Independent Learning all you need to help your students think independently, for a richer learning experience, and to impress inspectors. It is common for school inspectors to comment on the need for students to learn more independently, and from higher education admissions officers and employers there is a constant call for students to be better equipped to be able to learn and think for themselves. Students themselves enjoy and benefit from lessons in which they are given the opportunity to begin to take charge of the learning process, particularly when there is space for them to explore and inquire into topics that grab their attention. At the same time, there is enormous pressure on schools to 'teach to the test', leading many teachers to feel that they have to play safe and cannot risk giving their students genuine responsibility for their own learning, lest results suffer. Critics also argue that students need to be taught directly, as the capacity for meaningful inquiry is not one that most students possess, and even when it is present, the open-ended nature of the inquiry process can make learning inefficient. In this book, John L. Taylor shows how the rhetoric about independent learning can be turned into a practical reality. The book explores the foundations of effective learning and demonstrates how it is possible to implement an approach to learning which encourages students to learn to think for themselves. It shows how by teaching students to think better, teachers can ensure that they both succeed in jumping assessment hurdles and also enjoy a richer, more meaningful educational experience.

Designing a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programme can be daunting. Whether you are looking to better your own practice or coach your colleagues, it can be hard to know where to start. But don't worry, the Bloomsbury CPD Library is here to help! Divided into two unique sections, Teach Yourself and Train Others, this book is perfect for individual teachers, middle leaders and those looking to introduce whole-school CPD training programmes. The provision of technology focused CPD is often based on the 'whizz and bang' approach, promoting the use of eye-catching digital tools and equipment in classrooms without due consideration to pedagogical factors and, crucially, the individual school's context. José Picardo's new book will consider how technology is used in schools and provide research-informed strategies to help improve teaching and learning by using technology effectively. It focuses on the need to train staff in the skills required to choose the right technology to have lasting impact and combines not only information about how technology can best work in the classroom, but also what makes great teaching and how technology can complement this. The goal of the book is to help teachers integrate technology seamlessly into daily practice so that technology is used almost reflexively, effectively and without fuss. It also provides guidance on how to integrate this methodology and way of thinking across your school as well as training other teachers to successfully choose and use the best technology for their subject and their students. The book provides ten ready-to-use training plans, equating to a cost of just £2.30 per CPD session!

The whole philosophy behind students learning a Modern Foreign Language is based around the following techniques which aim to provide learning and engagement: Word Recognition & Key Vocabulary, Paragraph-Building. Jake Hunton includes Vocab Fun-Learning Activities (VFLAs) - suggested teaching & learning strategies based on how to engage students in learning vocabulary. They are all in-class strategies that directly impact on students' engagement & their recall & recognition of vocabulary in the modern foreign language. A number of these strategies are based around students having access to the vocabulary in the lesson and encouraged to learn (through recognition and recall) any vocabulary that the teacher chooses. A key issue with these strategies is that students struggle or are disengaged from the outset at having to learn lists of vocabulary. Using these strategies students' learning of vocabulary is made active in the lesson by the teacher.
