Education is like a sherbet lemon: we need the structures and systems the hard exterior but we can easily lose sight of the magic that is at the heart of this; the teaching and learning the fizz in the centre. Nina Jackson's mission in Of Teaching, Learning and Sherbet Lemons is to put the fizz back into classrooms by solving some of the toughest dilemmas facing teachers. You know the child in the class who never asks that burning question because they worry it might make them look silly, even if everyone else is thinking the same thing? Sometimes teachers can be like that child. And they don t know where to turn to get the answers. That is where Nina comes in. The teachers questions in Of Teaching, Learning and Sherbet Lemons have been anonymised, but Nina s answers will resonate with teachers everywhere, offering support and practical advice.

Topics covered include:

learner engagement and motivation

group work

spoon feeding

feedback

dyslexia

ADD and ADHD

self harm

pushy parents

bereavement

music in the classroom

the transition from primary to secondary school

action research

school councils

and INSET days.

Suitable for all teachers from NQTs to experienced teacher across all subject-specialisms and phases; from primary to higher education.

Product Description:

Of Teaching, Learning and Sherbet Lemons

Review:

`Ninja` Jackson is a well-known and much-loved educator, learner, teacher, and sharer of ideas. Inspiration pours forth from her like a fountain, a chocolate fountain perhaps, and catching the drops and putting them down on paper for us all to share is her aim in this book. The process is a dialogue, not a lecture: she wants to hear from us, to improve, to tweak, to learn and learn again. Her book is divided into a series of real-life questions, answered with helpful hints, think-points and resources to share. The sherbet lemon analogy refers to the gains to be had from working your way through to the soft centre of an idea or a practice. It`s hard, but utterly worthwhile. --Dr Robert Massey, Director of Scholars, Bristol Grammar School

Nina`s book is so refreshing- and just like the sherbet lemons it`s full of fizz! But don`t be fooled by the relaxed style and easy readability! This book is packed with some serious advice and guidance which will be of use to anyone working in a school. Whether you`re an experienced head teacher or just starting out as a classroom assistant I can guarantee you ll find plenty in here to make you think, to challenge you, to help you, and yes, even to amuse you on those difficult days. The user-friendly layout means it`s a useful guidebook for when you`re seeking help or inspiration in a specific area, but it`s also a book you can read through from start to finish and I`m sure you won`t put it down without being left with some great ideas --John Kendall, @RiscaCCS_Head, Risca Community Comprehensive School, South Wales

I recommend `Of Teaching, Learning and Sherbet Lemons` unreservedly to anyone who feels that their teaching lacks the fizz their students deserve. If you feel you spend all your time sucking the sherbet lemon, only to find that nothing lurks within. Jackson amply fulfils her aim of putting the inspiration back. --Stephen Oliver, Principal, Our Lady s, Abingdon
