John Tomsett - Aug 04, 2020
Goodreads Rating
If we do not ensure, first and foremost, that our teachers are feeling physically and mentally well, they cannot be their best for their students.

Matthew Evans - Nov 01, 2019

@Xris32 This remarkable book really gets to the bones of teaching English: ‘The more pressurised things become, the more I focus the content. Effective teaching isn’t about overloading. It is about clarity and decluttering.’ Bravo @Xris32      source
