Editorial Reviews

Review

Greg Ashman has written something about behaviour management that is rare in education: useful and evidence-informed. So many commentators write about children as we would like them to be rather than the ones we find on classrooms. His focus on prevention and cure as simultaneous strategies of core importance, is one of the most overlooked manifestos in the craft of running a room. There’s more sense in this one chapter than in half the teacher training courses I have seen on the matter, and I wish that every new teacher had a chance to read, absorb and reflect on its clear and simple wisdom. -- Tom Bennett

This is a highly readable, practical and thought-provoking account of the evidence about how we learn and how to teach. Anyone interested in improving education should read it.


-- Daisy Christodoulou

Greg Ashman changed my life. I was introduced to his blog via Dylan Wiliam, and Greg’s subsequent interview on my Mr Barton Maths Podcast in 2017 left me and thousands of listeners questioning everything in teaching that we had previous taken for granted. It took me 12 years to think deeper about the the way I planned lessons, the things I did in the classroom, how I marked books, and many other things. The Truth about Teaching is the book I wished I’d had all those years ago.

 

 

 


-- Craig Barton

...Ashman admits that "teaching cannot claim to be evidence-based ... Instead, we can hope to be evidence-informed." It′s a welcome admission that cognitive models and large scale meta-analyses might not tell us everything about what goes on in the classroom, and sets the tone for the rest of this detailed and absorbing book. -- George Duoblys ― Schools Week

New and aspiring teachers will find this book gives valuable insights. The author′s extensive background in teaching means he writes from an informed and empathetic viewpoint, giving his readers confidence. An understanding of educational research is demonstrated, along with the most vital ideas necessary to succeed in teaching... It′s a practical book, firmly rooted in actual classroom experience with real children - it′s just what teachers will encounter and therefore reassuring and positive to use and apply. -- Sarah Brew ― Parents in Touch --This text refers to the paperback edition.
