The Thinking Teacher offers a current and reflective resource for teachers at every level who wish to transform their thinking and their practice in the classroom. Written by teacher professional learning expert Dr. Kulvarn Atwal, the book shows teachers how they can make a positive difference to every single student they teach. He shares strategies that will empower you to navigate your way through a complex profession in a continual cycle of learning and improvement.

The greatest influence on the quality of students' learning in schools is the quality of teaching. This book is based on the best available evidence of how to maximise your effectiveness in the classroom. The book includes specific examples of how to build your teaching powers through reflective practice as well as teaching strategies that will enable your students to develop as independent learners.

Filled with practical strategies, Atwal encourages teachers to transform their mindsets and experiment with how they teach to improve their practice. It is essential reading for teachers at the beginning of their careers as well as anyone at any level of experience who is interested in improving their teaching.

About the Author:

Dr. Kulvarn Atwal has spent his entire career teaching and leading in East London schools, and is currently Executive Head Learning Leader of two large primary schools. He is the author of numerous articles and in 2019, published his first book, 'The Thinking School. Developing a Dynamic Learning Community'.

Kulvarn specialises in teacher professional learning. His doctoral thesis investigated the factors that impact upon teacher engagement in professional learning activities, with a particular focus on action research. The model developed through this research has been used to shape leadership practice in schools across the world. He has spent many years working with student teachers and Early Career Teachers and has designed a professional learning programme for teachers in their first two years of teaching.

Kulvarn believes that as teachers, each day brings opportunities to learn, grow and improve. This model of learning-focused teaching has resulted in one of the schools he leads achieving the Mayor of London's 'Schools for Success' Award for five consecutive years. He is currently working at a national policy level to improve the quality of teaching, learning and assessment in our schools.
