What have people been saying about my new book, Mark. Plan. Teach?

The publication date of my new book is this week! I am delighted and proud to share some more reviews of my book Mark. Plan. Teach with you.


‘Ross Morrison McGill is the inventor of cutting-edge classroom ideas in today’s global education ecosystem and his new book is a perfect example of such. […] This well-written and cleverly organised manual is full of crucial resources, tips and instructions which will also enable school leaders help their peers to become top-performers.’

Gökhan Yücel, Education Consultant and Former Chief Advisor to the Turkish Minister of National Education

Mark. Plan. Teach. is an honestly written and research-informed book. It offers numerous gems in an easily digestible and conversational tone. Ross makes an excellent case for feedback being the cornerstone for both pupil and teacher progress, while fully understanding the problems of teacher workload. This book will be invaluable to teachers in any stage of their career.’

Arushi Prabhakar, Teacher of Chemistry and M.P.Ed Candidate, Western University, Canada

‘Marking can have a massive impact on teacher workload. Worryingly, it often has very little impact on students’ learning. Ross makes an important contribution by reminding us that marking is merely a type of feedback – and that there are other forms of feedback, verbal and in-lesson, for example. He emphasises that it is the quality, not the quantity, of marking and feedback that is important. Applied with care, these ideas can help build schools that work for pupils and for staff.’

Russell Hobby, General Secretary, NAHT 2010-2017


If you are thinking of buying a copy, remember delivery is faster from the publishers itself.

Every idea in Mark. Plan. Teach. can be implemented by all primary and secondary teachers at any stage of their career. The ideas have been tried and tested and are supported by evidence that explains why they work, including current educational research and psychological insights from Dr Tim O’Brien, leading psychologist and Visiting Fellow at UCL Institute of Education. Mark. Plan. Teach. will enable all teachers to maximise the impact of their teaching and, in doing so, save time, reduce workload and take back control of the classroom.

Reviews on the back cover are offered by Doug Lemov, Director of Uncommon Schools and author of Teach Like a Champion, and Ben Solly, principal of Uppingham Community College.
