Book Reviews

"If you’re looking for a book packed with ideas on how to become an even better teacher, this is it. In 'Powering Up Children' Guy and Becky demystify the culture of a great learning environment and offer educators a complete mindset shift for creating more agile teaching and learning. Just like your savings account, the Learning Power Approach requires investment – but the pay-off is enormous. Get stuck in! The worst thing that can happen is that you get it right the first time and miss out on an opportunity to build your own learning muscles!"

“'Powering Up Children' is full of practical examples and ideas to help teachers and children delve deeper into what Guy Claxton and Becky Carlzon call “results plus”. Building on the foundations of 'The Learning Power Approach', the authors challenge us to reflect and to go beyond: to customise and improve our practice so that we help children develop as learners – not just to get top grades, but also to build character in readiness for the tests of life.”

- Tom Wallace, Specialist Leader of Education in Formative Assessment, Ignite TSA, and co-founder of Balance Assessment

"While many books on education are thought-provoking, one often ends up wondering how the ideas presented could actually be implemented in the classroom. ’Powering Up Students’, however, is different. It reads like a greatest hits collection, and provides a very practical guide for busy teachers as Guy and Graham distill the best teaching practices they have witnessed over many years of watching a wide range of superb teachers. An essential book for any teacher wishing to help young people to achieve outstanding academic results and be prepared for the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century."

- Neil Tetley, Principal, Hastings School
