Rocket up your Class!




Edited by Ian Gilbert.

A compendium of ideas that will light the blue touchpaper on any class and any lesson.

Are you looking for a creative opening for your next lesson with that difficult group? Or an energising middle with that class who tend to nod off halfway through Wednesday afternoon’s lesson? Or even a big finish with your favourite students? Well, this is the book for you. If you dare. Full of wildly practical activities, simply pick out a relevant game, exercise or idea and watch the fireworks fly. Drawn from over ten years of experience, working with thousands of students in hundreds of schools, the inimitable Mr Keeling has created a very powerful box of intellectual fireworks to put a rocket under even the most recalcitrant students and prove conclusively that, as Socrates once stated, ‘Life and learning should be a festival of the mind’.
