Research has revealed a huge number of ways in which schools are successfully addressing the issue of raising grades at GCSE. This volume pulls these different approaches together and outlines succinctly and clearly those methods which are being used successfully across the country and which can be implemented by any department and any school without additional cost, resources or staffing.
This volume reports on issues as varied as different methods of teaching, the impact on grades of teaching study skills, the teaching of speed reading, enhancing pupil motivation, enhancing self-esteem among GCSE candidates and the use of school improvement techniques. There is also a significant level of guidance in the volume on how to enhance methods of pupil learning.
There can be no doubt that schools which implement just a small number of the techniques and approaches outlined in this book will immediately see a significant rise in the level of grades at GCSE. This will not only be of obvious significant benefit to the pupils but will also help raise the profile of the school, and raise the motivation and self-esteem of the teachers.
