This book provides English teachers with 50 cohesive suggestions for embedding and extending learning in the classroom: from individual to whole-class activities, and from the energetic to the sedate, all with realistic timings for each. Even better, every starter and plenary contains an 'ideas generator', making it easily-adaptable for the whole ability range of your class and keeping it fresh for you to use, and there are PowerPoints, task sheets and other time-saving resources online. The book covers the whole spectrum of topics that every English teacher needs to cover, and makes use of music, drama, maps, charts and practical props. Some ideas involve students managing and monitoring each other; some use all the senses; others involve creative thinking and where practical and appropriate, the content is embedded in the real world so that students can immediately see the wider application of their efforts. The 'teacher tips' section offers guidance on how to deliver the idea to get the best results based on years of trial and error by the author.

All New Classroom Starters and Plenaries provides busy teachers with a set of flexible, easy-to-implement activity ideas that can be used in any subject. The 50 starters and 50 plenaries have been crafted to fit with the structure of teaching, rather than specific content, so you can dip into the book when you are in search of a new idea for engaging your class and adapt the activity to suit your own needs. The activities have been organised into useful divisions, such as Assessment for Learning, Concepts, and Learning Objectives, and each includes a brief rationale for the activity. Many of the activities offer several examples of how it could be used, and there are online resources too, giving you everything you need not just in planning your starters and plenaries, but also in delivering them to your class.
