Review:

`How nice to see the humanisation of a process that it is of real concern to teachers. It is good to see a book that takes the teachers' issues seriously but reminds us that the best teaching and learning is motivating, personalised and rewarding to both pupils and the teachers themselves rather than mechanistic and unnecessarily formulaic. This book reminds us that enjoyable teaching and Ofsted success should be and usually are synonymous.' Tim Lomas, Principal School Improvement Adviser, CfBT Lincolnshire School Improvement Service, UK `Engagingly written and bursting with practical, stimulating ideas to PIMP your lessons. This is a book my PGCE trainees will lap up - it has the potential to help prevent panic in the face of formal lesson observation! but, more importantly, to enhance and energise their everyday classroom practice.' Ruth Hewitt, PGCE Coordinator, Bishop Grosseteste University College, Lincoln, UK `A fresh, innovative and exciting take on lesson planning providing engaging and educational strategies for effective planning which will entertain both the teacher and their students. This book is beneficial for trainee teachers, newly qualified and the experienced and provides a positive influence on the reader, encouraging them to abandon stale ideas and not to be afraid of experimenting. I think it is an absolute triumph to make the prospect of being observed sound like a fun challenge and this book really encourages teachers to make the best of their lessons and to take the opportunity to show off what they can do!' Sarah Peacock, NQT, North Kesteven School, Lincoln, UK `A current, relevant and fun-packed perspective providing an excellent toolkit for lesson conception and planning - not only in anticipation of the dreaded observation process but also in day to day teaching life. Wallace and Kirkman provide practical, inventive and invigorating approaches for all teaching professionals, old and new. Prepare to be inspired, prepare to be `pimped'! Kirsty Dring, Visual Arts Consultant, CfBT Lincolnshire School Improvement Service, UK `This book gives any teachers who are wanting to improve their effectiveness in the classroom some very practical pointers, tips and guidelines that enable them to become more effective in the teaching/learning process. Eminently practical and easily readable, with a light touch and humour, this book reignites enthusiasm to do a better job in the classroom.' John Gibbon, Education Consultant and Co-ordinator of professional growth seminars, National Association of Professional Teaching Organisations of South Africa `Panic over! You've got an interview? This book will help you showcase your teaching skills to great effect. Knowing that you are well prepared, you'll be full of confidence to get that job.' Theo Griff, TES Forum Expert
