I am a published author.

Wow, I never thought I would write that sentence. Drawing attention to myself has always been something I have avoided. Now I have to tell people about it 😱

You may wonder why I published anything, if I am so reluctant to advertise my involvement in it. I shall attempt to explain myself.

Changing Workload Patterns

Being a science teacher I thought it was time for an experiment. I decided I was going to find a way to take less work home with me. Yes… I like a challenge.

One of the first changes I made was starting to do my detailed lesson planning at school. I had always done my ‘big picture’ planning at school, because it made putting my orders in to the technicians for the next week easier. If I needed advice from them, or to know what equipment would be available then I could just ask.

Fairly quickly I found a problem. All my planning resources are kept at home, so when I needed to quickly think up a starter or plenary activity I could not just flick through my stash.

Addressing the Problem

Wouldn’t it be simple if I could swiftly access ideas on my phone. So that is what I did. Two books, each with fast inspiration to speed up the lesson planning process. They are not in-depth studies into the benefits of starters and plenaries. They are simply a digital handbook you can virtually flip through to help you out when your brain is too tired to function.

You can download them on the iBooks and Kindle platforms.
