Books

Obviously, I’d be a fool not to recommend my own books, but these are some of the works which have inspired me to become a more thoughtful teacher:

(sorted alphabetically by author last name)

Isabelle Beck, Margaret G. McKeown and Linda Kucan Bringing Words to Life: Robust Vocabulary Instruction

Tom Bennett Teacher Proof: Why research in education doesn’t always mean what it claims, and what you can do about it

Ron Berger An Ethic of Excellence: Building a Culture of Craftsmanship with Students

Brown, Roediger and McDaniel Make It Stick: The Science of Successful Learning (Covers important content but is appallingly badly written.)

Pedro De Bruyckere & Paul A. Kirschner Urban Myths about Learning and Education

Jan Meyer, Ray Land & Caroline Baillie Threshold Concepts and Transformational Learning

David McRaney You are Not So Smart

Graham Nuthall The Hidden Lives of Learners – finally available in the UK! A must read.
