Welcome to this site – it’s a simple give-away site where I have collected resources that teachers and colleagues have found valuable over recent years. I offer it in the hope that it will provide resource to schools who wish to focus on learning (with all the benefits that brings). There are
nearly over 150 things to download.
Many thanks to my co-authors and co-workers, and to the thousands of teachers I have met in recent decades. Everything in this site has been developed in conjunction with practising teachers.
One point about the organisation of this site: it is obviously organised into simple categories (publications, handouts, etc) and there would obviously be connections across these categories. Presentations turn out to make most connections, because they contain weblinks to relevant publications, handouts and video clips. Sorry not to have made all the connections – enjoy your exploring! (and making new connections).
