Another from Jackie Beere's 'Perfect' stable, this simple but effective little book is designed to help bring the best out of all English departments during that all-important Ofsted visit. It is written by David Didau, a highly effective and innovative head of English at a school where Independent Thinking is a trustee. He has been instrumental in overseeing an enviable rise in A to C results over the last few years to 84% in 2011.

Packed full of ideas, strategies and simple yet effective innovations, this book is an essential tool in the toolkit of every English department - and not just for the inspection either! With topics including assessment for learning, progress, the learning environment and planning outstanding lessons, this is the book for every English teacher's desk drawer.

David Didau works at Swindon Academy as well as being a freelance writer, speaker, trainer and author. He started his award winning blog, The Learning Spy, in 2011 to express the constraints and irritations of ordinary teachers, detail the successes and failures of his classroom and synthesise his years of teaching experienced through the lens of education research and cognitive psychology. Since then he has spoken at various national conferences, directly influenced Ofsted and worked with the DfE on reducing teachers' workload. He has also written the hugely successful book, The Secret of Literacy, in which he urges teachers to 'make the implicit explicit'. In his latest book, What If Everything You Knew About Education Was Wrong? he has turned his attention to the myriad unexamined assumptions that underlie education and how we might realign schools with how children actually learn.
