Jim Smith

There are two things that will transform the nature of teaching and learning in this country – brave heads and lazy teachers.

So, when it comes to helping teachers to teach less (and the children learn more) there’s one person who can really show schools how it’s done. After all, Jim Smith is one of the laziest, offloadiest, most delegation–happy teachers we’ve ever met. He is the original Lazy Teacher.

And it’s no coincidence that he’s also one of the best classroom practitioners we know (something The National Teaching Awards agree with as well, awarding Jim a Distinction in the category of Secondary School Teacher of the year 2010).

Jim is passionate about ensuring learners get more from their education than the standard diet of classroom-based teacher-led learning. After all, how long can you lead from the front, if you are collapsed under the desk?

If you want your students to learn more and you to work less, then Jim’s Lazy Way provides you with all the arguments and evidence you need to become a lazy, but outstanding teacher. Gathered over 10 years (and counting) in the classroom the Lazy Way is based on tried-and-tested techniques that shift the emphasis away from the teaching and onto the learning, help you hit your PLTS or skills based curriculum buttons and make your life so much easier in the process. Fed up with missing out on those sunny Sundays?…
