Mark Plan Teach

Reading Time: 2 minutes

What is it that every teacher must do?

Mark books. Plan lessons. Teach students of course! It’s not quite a book launch, but I am delighted to announce the final details of my third book: #MarkPlanTeach, due for publication in September 2017 (pre-orders). I have shared the ‘press release’ below that was distributed to the ‘publications world’ earlier this week.

Press Release:

Bloomsbury Education is thrilled to announce that they will publish the new book from best-selling author Ross Morrison McGill aka @TeacherToolkit in September 2017.

Mark. Plan. Teach. will be Ross Morrison McGill’s third book for Bloomsbury Education, and is aimed at every teacher – those new to the profession or with years of experience.

There are three actions that every teacher must do well. Provide feedback, plan lessons and teach students. Packed full of evidence-based ideas, Mark Plan Teach, is supported by psychological perspectives to enable all teachers to develop their classroom practice to help make the greatest impact as possible on students’ learning; reducing workload and making the class domain, manageable and sustainable.

The final cover

Commissioning Editor Miriam Davey of Bloomsbury Education said:

Ross’ sincere passion for improving teaching and learning is why so many teachers today listen to what he has to say. I’m delighted that Bloomsbury Education can, once again, work with Ross to provide what teachers need in their classrooms today to effectively support them and their students.

Cover Design:

A collection of cover templates and how the final cover has evolved; including small manipulations to the bold red tick.

Ross Morrison McGill said of his third book with Bloomsbury Education:

In a landscape dominated with political hogwash, where teachers in England continue to work the longest hours and be paid one of the lowest salaries in OECD countries, teachers’ workload is at record levels. Despite increasing concerns, the government still has no coherent strategy for recruitment, retention or workload. Teachers are craving pragmatic ideas that work, sourcing strategies – which have the least fuss and greatest impact – to help them survive and thrive in the classroom! I am delighted to publish my third book which builds upon current debate in education; that all teachers work closely with strategies that are supported by evidence. In Mark Plan Teach I add a psychological perspective explaining why teachers do the things they do; to extrapolate what works and how teachers can understand, the cognitive and emotional processes of students.

Mark. Plan. Teach. will be published in September 2017 and pre-orders are available.
