This book is for any teacher who's interested in improving their lesson planning and practice. It outlines a set of mindsets and habits you can use to help you identify the most impactful parts of your teaching and put them center stage. It's about doing less to achieve more.
But it's also about being happier and more confident in the classroom. Building stronger routines around the essentials will give you more time and space to appreciate and think creatively about your work.
Lean Lesson Planning draws on the latest evidence from educational research and cognitive science, to present a concise and coherent framework to help you improve learning experiences and outcomes for your students. It's the evidence-based teacher's guide to planning for learning and sits alongside books such as Teach Like a Champion, Embedded Formative Assessment, and Visible Learning for Teachers.
Books that make teachers' lives simpler like this are few and far between.
