Why do I need a teacher when I’ve got Google? is just one of the challenging, controversial and thought-provoking questions Ian Gilbert poses in this urgent and invigorating book. Questioning the unquestionable, this fully updated new edition will make you re-consider everything you thought you knew about teaching and learning, such as: • Are you simply preparing the next generation of unemployed accountants? • What do you do for the ‘sweetcorn kids’ who come out of the education system in pretty much the same state as when they went in? • What’s the real point of school? • Exams – So whose bright idea was that? • Why ‘EQ’ is fast becoming the new ‘IQ’. • What will your school policy be on brain-enhancing technologies? • Which is the odd one out between a hamster and a caravan? With his customary combination of hard-hitting truths, practical classroom ideas and irreverent sense of humour, Ian Gilbert takes the reader on a breathless rollercoaster ride through burning issues of the twenty-first century, considering everything from the threats facing the world and the challenge of the BRIC economies to the link between eugenics and the 11+. As wide-ranging and exhaustively-researched as it is entertaining and accessible, this book is designed to challenge teachers and inform them – as well as encourage them – as they strive to design a twenty-first century learning experience that really does bring the best out of all young people. After all, the future of the world may just depend on it

In The Compleat Thunks Book Ian Gilbert brings together classic Thunks from a number of his books, as well as hundreds of new ones, all designed to make your brain hurt as you think, question, debate and argue your way to a better understanding of how to survive in a world gone dangerously bonkers. We are living in an age in which facts don’t count, certainty no longer exists and complexity means we never quite know what just happened, let alone what will happen next. To better prepare ourselves for such a world, we need a brain workout that isn’t so much about finding answers as getting our heads around questions. We need The Compleat Thunks Book: a collection of beguiling questions about everyday things that stop you in your tracks and help you start to look at the world in a whole new light. At times controversial and often provocative, Ian Gilbert’s brainteasers are sure to stimulate philosophical enquiry and debate during the thinking, reasoning, logic or panic employed in arriving at (or deviating from) the answers and conversations that ensue. In other words, it’s not about the answers at all and, as in life, there are none at the back of the book. Covering as wide a variation of topics as possible – from love and lies to parking a car and molesting robots – The Compleat Thunks Book will appeal to people of all ages, tastes and prejudices, and can be used to steer pub, dinner party or family discussions away from the same old topics. Some of these Thunks were previously published in The Book of Thunks, ISBN 978-184590092-2, The Little Book of Thunks, ISBN 978-184590062-5, and Independent Thinking, ISBN 978-178135055-3.

Hey Teacher, You've Got Chalk on Your Pants is a "teaching mentor to go" for today's generation of passionate, new teachers. We give it to you as straight as that student who just walked up to tell you your breath stank. This book covers everything new teachers need to know as they take their first teetering steps along the path to Teacherhood, ranging from age-old questions like "What should they call you?" to more delicate issues facing teachers like "What do you do when a student comes to class high?" The book's combination of anecdotes, heartfelt advice, and humor makes for a fast-paced, accessible, and often hilarious read. At least that's what our mothers tell us. This is the book we wish we were handed along with that giant pile of Scantrons our first day of teaching. "Bomphray and Scaccia have put together a practical, common-sense guide to everything you'll never expect when you're a new teacher. I rediscovered in each punchy chapter more reasons for why I still do what I do." Laura Collura, Principal Cape Town, South Africa "The honesty, humor, and heart that flows from this book is unparalleled. It should be required reading in every teacher prep program in the country. Do not enter a classroom before reading this book." Megan McCoy-Milan, Teacher Hayward, CA "Hey Teacher, You've Got Chalk On Your Pants is an honest, forgiving, and irreverent offering to new teachers trying to navigate the challenges and contradictions of working in urban schools. I would definitely give this book to someone just starting out in the profession-every other page contains a lesson that I wish I hadn't learned the hard way." Marisa Traylor, Teacher Oakland, CA
