Teacher-talk is a powerful tool. But while we must embrace teacher-talk as vital, we must also bear in mind that not all teacher-talk is created equal. Long periods of talk will not always keep a class spellbound. We need other techniques on which we can draw to help students embed learning and make progress. After all, how can we be effectively checking progress and understanding when it is we who are doing all the talking? How can we be certain that the sea of "attentive" faces before us is not simply contemplating lunch?

The solution is here: a vast bank of exciting, engaging, practical ways to allow learners to access and understand complex topics and skills without relentlessly bending their ears – strategies which not only prevent students from being passengers in lessons, but which also make progress visible to both teacher and learner. In an entertaining and practical way, Talk-Less Teaching shows you how to encourage learners' responsibility for their own progress without compromising test results or overall achievement.

Discover hundreds of tried and tested practical tips for helping students understand difficult concepts and learn new skills without you developing lecture-laryngitis.
