9781781350065: Whole School Progress the LAZY Way: Follow Me I'm Right Behind You

Jim Smith is the laziest (but professional) teacher in town. Where the traditional view is one that focuses on the teacher's role in leading the learning, Jim's take is that of "letting the learning lead." The learners are very much in the driving seat. Practical hands-on advice.



Based on Jim Smith’s learning and leadership work with schools across the country, this book is packed with highly practical solutions and suggestions that are proven to help you improve the quality of learning (and therefore progress!) both in your classroom and across the school. And as it’s all done in the laziest possible way, it will be the pupils working harder, not you!
Following on from the acclaimed The Lazy Teacher’s Handbook, Whole school progress the LAZY way applies Jim Smith’s lazy philosophy to the thorny issue of making progress’. Aimed at improving learning both in the classroom and across the school, this book once again shows how you can use Jim’s renowned lazy way’ to put student’s learning first rather than your teaching or paranoia about progress. And the result? Outstanding progress in your lessons without even a hint of traffic lights, mini-whiteboards or thumbs up! Be it planning for progress, capturing evidence of progress in a lesson or using lesson observation techniques that make progress explicit, the book offers lots of new techniques which have led to outstanding’ judgements during Ofsted inspections. Just ask the author!
What’s more, Jim extends his ideas across the whole school. Drawing on his experience with lazy leadership’ he shows how his philosophy can have a dramatic impact on areas such as lesson observations, performance management and professional development. It’s not about leading the learning. It’s about the learning leading you. And when you let it, your school is never the same again.

Using the techniques of his first book, Jim offers idea upon idea in a way that is entirely accessible. The lazy’ bit is again the misnomer but the book does show how thinking teachers and school leaders can make their jobs enjoyable and reap the rewards for effort that makes sense.”
Mick Waters, Professor of Education, Wolverhampton University

Still a practising teacher himself, Jim Smith writes with authority and also with respect for both the young people he teaches and the colleagues with whom he works. Underpinned by a clearly articulated paradigm and written in a refreshing, engaging and accessible style punctuated with examples drawn from his own work and from his extensive experience of working with a range of schools, this book speaks to anyone who is (or will be) part of a busy staffroom and who seeks more than a set of tips for teachers.”
Jayne Prior, Senior Teaching Fellow in Education and Director of Educational
and Professional Studies (PGCE), University of Bristol

A thoroughly enjoyable, suitably humorous and endlessly useful read. It makes for a natural step from the The Lazy Teacher’s Handbook and takes the concept of Lazy Teaching out of the classroom and into the whole school.”
Geoff Cherrill, Vice Principal, Nova Hreod, Swindon

Geoff Cherrill, Vice Principal, Nova Hreod, Swindon

A welcome sequel to Jim Smith’s first book, and again jam-packed with ideas for invisibly transferring the learning load onto students - this time with an emphasis on whole-school processes. Readable, amusing and quirky, I expect this to do as well as its predecessor.”
Barry J Hymer, Professor of Psychology in Education, University of Cumbria
