Ten books every teacher should be reading in 2018

Sarah Salmon

Friday, 1 June 2018

A wealth of books containing helpful and practical ideas for teachers can help supercharge the way you teach your students as well as challenging the way you think as an educator.

We turn to books as a way of opening up our minds, our knowledge and skills by gaining deeper understanding of the things we want to invest in both personally and professionally. Books focalised on education in particular, help to increase the awareness of our educators to new teaching trends as well as opening them up to changes in their system of practice.

Here we provide our top picks of educational books for 2018. Containing excellent advice and techniques for improving school culture, leadership as well as boosting student achievement, there's something here for everyone looking to bolster their teaching practice.

Time to take your pick!
