Teaching and Targets Summary


Teaching and Targets: Self Evaluation and School Improvement by John Blanchard (former independent consultant for schools, local authorities and higher education institutions in the UK)

Teachers, school managers and governors are now more publicly accountable than ever. They are expected to know how their school is performing and how to improve that performance. Target setting is a key tool in the drive to raise standards, and has been implemented at every level of the education system.

This book explores target setting from both the teacher's and pupil's viewpoint, and investigates the role of assessment in successful teaching and learning. It shows that it is possible to develop a whole-school target setting policy co-ordinating the use of targets for individual pupils, subject specific departments and teams, and whole-school improvement plans. In this way, targets can be used positively for the benefit of pupils, teachers and managers.

This book will be important reading for headteachers, senior management teams, assessment co-ordinators and subject leaders in schools, and will also be of interest to governors and LEA advisors.

Teaching and Targets Reviews


'John Blanchard is an old hand. Here he covers what pupils think, what good teaching means, and how to link formative assessment to sub and whole-school targets. There is a reassuring link to performance management, and a reminder of how helpful lesson observation can be when it's seen as an entitlement, and not an imposition.' - Michael Duffy, Times Educational Supplement

'Detailed advice on how you can use targets to have a beneficial effect on your schools performance is provided. The aim is to help practitioners as they establish a policy for all the different knids of target and objective that are used in school and with the preperation of clear and specific targets to provide motivation and direction.' - Educational Review
