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.


Dame Alison Peacock, CEO of the Chartered College of Teaching
I loved this book! Dr Atwal presents his central theme of the importance of professional learning and engagement at the heart of schools persuasively and in an evidence-informed manner. He describes the teacher agency that energises colleagues who feel in control of their own learning and development. The impact of this work on the overall ethos of a 'Thinking School' is clear to see. I believe that our profession would be enriched beyond measure if colleagues embraced the ideas that are explored within this book. Highly recommended!
