Lesson planning is a requirement of every teacher. Whether you are planning your day-to-day lessons or a formal observation, planning is a skill that can be refined and improved to ensure your workload is manageable and your lessons exceptional. Aimed at committed and reflective teachers who want to develop their practice, this book introduces Tweaks for Teachers: small changes that make a big difference! It encourages you to review your current lesson planning practice and develop lessons that enable students to make outstanding learning gains. The book focuses on making practical, small changes that, over time, can make a real difference to the quality of learning and teaching in the classroom. Organised around real lesson snippets and full lesson plans covering every secondary subject, the book focuses on the key areas you need to plan for every lesson: assessment for learning, questioning, stretch and challenge and commitment to learning, as well as covering the importance of developing a good marking practice. Real examples of successful lessons are provided as well as a commentary of missed opportunities and practical 'tweaks' that could be made to improve students' learning and to develop outstanding teaching. This format means that the book is not only useful to those teachers wanting to develop their practice, but it is also a really useful training tool for those with responsibility for training new teachers or devolving a school's CPD provision. Lesson Planning Tweaks for Teachers takes a highly original approach to improving your lesson planning. Mel and Debbie's down to earth and accessible style will help every secondary teacher, whatever your level of experience, to make the planning process more meaningful and manageable, and one that leads to outstanding progress over time.

Mel and Debbie worked together at a school in Ealing as senior leaders in charge of the CPD provision and tasked with improving the overall teaching levels in the school. A year ago (they just celebrated their anniversary!) they set up a blog called Teacher Tweaks www.teachertweaks.wordpress.com and a Twitter account @TeacherTweaks. In just a year they have gained over 3,500 followers. On their blog and in the book their priority is to get across that they 'see through teacher's eyes'. As Advanced Skills teachers, with experience of senior leadership and National Strategy Consultancy, they have spent a large proportion of their time observing lessons, reflecting on good teaching practice and training colleagues to improve. They have responded to what their experience and discussions with colleagues have told them and designed a book that is truly effective for those at the 'interactive whiteboard face'. The lesson plans in the book are actually being taught by them and their colleagues and the idea of small tweaks is realistic, manageable and motivates people to implement them.
