This brand new title in the 100 ideas series provides secondary teachers with an easy to implement list of revision strategies they can use in lessons. Each idea has been tried and tested and will have minimal preparation time for teachers; links will be provided to materials and proformas for teachers to use. The book will focus on strategies of effective revision which can be used to help prepare students for any level of examinations. These strategies can be easily implemented in lessons at any post Year 7 level, therefore encouraging students to consistently review and reinforce their learning. This consistent approach means that revision is built into a scheme of learning and becomes an everyday process rather than one that is just used in the run up towards examinations.

The A Level Mindset

40 activities for transforming student commitment, motivation and productivity

In The A Level Mindset, Steve Oakes and Martin Griffin share the secrets of coaching students to develop the characteristics, habits and mindsets which will help them realise their potential. Those students who make real and sustained progress at A level aren't necessarily the ones with superb GCSEs. Some students leap from average results aged 16 to outstanding results aged 18. Others seem to hit a ceiling. But why? It was in trying to answer this question that the VESPA system emerged. Steve and Martin have cut through the noise surrounding character development and identified five key characteristics that all students need to be successful: vision, effort, systems, practice and attitude. These characteristics beat cognition hands down. Successful students approach their studies with the right behaviours, skills and attitudes: they understand how to learn and revise effectively, they’re determined and organised, they give more discretionary effort and they get top results. Success at A level is a result of character, not intelligence. Much has been written about growth mindsets and character development in recent years, but teachers are still left wondering how to apply these ideas in their contexts: how can these theories help learners in practice? Taking cues from the work of Peter Clough, Carol Dweck and Angela Lee Duckworth, and informed by their collective 30 plus years of teaching and coaching, Steve and Martin have spent years researching how character and behaviours affect student outcomes in their sixth form. After identifying the core traits that contributed to student success, they developed practical activities to help every student develop the A Level Mindset. Discover 40 concrete, practical and applicable tools and strategies that will supercharge learners’ ambition, organisation, productivity, persistence and determination. Suitable for teachers, tutors, heads of sixth form or anyone else who wants to help A level students achieve their potential, The A Level Mindset offers 40 easy-to-use activities to develop students' resilience, commitment, buoyancy, motivation and determination. It could be your key to transforming student outcomes.

From EAL experts Chris Pim and Catharine Driver come 100 ideas for providing secondary teachers with strategies and activities to support the induction, assessment and learning of students with English as an additional language (EAL) in tutor time, in specific subjects and at whole-school level. There is so much pressure on teachers to deliver engaging and innovative lessons that both adhere to the demands of the curriculum and get the necessary results. Having to plan lessons, implement strategies and create effective resources for EAL students can be a challenge, and with over 15% of secondary school students exposed to a language other than English in their home (according to 2016 data from the Department for Education), it is a challenge affecting every teacher. This book provides practical plans for giving EAL learners general support, but also includes ideas linked to specific subjects, especially key problem areas such as mathematics and science, to help EAL learners get the most out of lessons. 100 Ideas for Secondary Teachers: Supporting EAL Learners is a treasure trove of adaptable ideas to use for students who are beginners and advanced learners of EAL.
