Ever wondered what would happen if you stopped teaching in your lessons? You might be surprised. If you want your students to learn more and you to work less, then this book provides you with all the arguments and evidence you need to become a lazy, but outstanding teacher. Gathered over 10 years in the classroom, this handbook of tried-and-tested techniques shifts the emphasis away from the teaching and onto the learning, and makes your life so much easier in the process.

Fed up missing out on those sunny Sundays? Maybe your marking could be done by the local community instead? Sick of planning lessons? Get the students to plan them for you. (After all, personalised learning can't involve 30 lesson plans!).

This powerful book is packed full of easy-to-apply and highly effective strategies (which Ofsted have rated as outstanding). What's more, they all have the seal of approval of real students in real classrooms. In fact, many of them have been thought up by the students themselves, but that's why Jim Smith is called the Lazy Teacher. So, next time someone says to you to get a life, this book will make it possible.


Jim Smith, the laziest (yet still professional) teacher in town, is deputy head teacher, education consultant, Independent Thinking Associate, speaker and best selling author.
