Review

Have you ever wondered what would happen in your classroom if you simply stopped teaching?

The pressure on teachers from countless education initiatives is one of the major reasons that most teachers (82% according to a Guardian  survey) describe their workload as unmanageable. So, enter Jim Smith, the laziest (but still professional) teacher in town.

It’s been more than six years since his bestselling book was first published, and his philosophy of teaching less, and giving students more time to learn, has developed significantly since then.

This new, expanded edition details Jim’s latest thinking on how you can be the best lazy-but-outstanding teacher you can be, and maybe even reclaim your Sundays from marking and planning.
