Important, knowledgeable voices in education ring out from all directions - voices of experts and practitioners who have devoted significant amounts of time and expertise to the education of young people.Teachers are notoriously dedicated, but also notoriously busy. Keeping up with the latest and best ideas in education can sometimes seem overwhelming - there is so much out there, how does a busy teacher know where to begin? It is equally hard to find time to reflect upon how to apply these ideas in practice.The purpose of the Best of the Best series is to bring together - for the first time - the most influential voices in education in a format that is concise, insightful and accessible for teachers. This first title, Progress, features a comprehensive collection of brief and accessible contributions from some of the most eminent names in education from around the world. Isabella Wallace and Leah Kirkman have curated a collection of inspiring contributions on the theme of progress and have developed practical, realistic, cross-curricular and cross-phase strategies to make the most of these important insights in the classroom.
