Ross Morrison McGill

The author is an experienced teacher and school leader, who has built up a significant following on social media. He left teaching at the end of 2017 to focus on building resources for his website 'Teacher Toolkit', writing books and delivering training sessions. 

Mark, Plan, Teach is drawn from his field notes over three decades of teaching. It outlines approaches and resources that can support teachers in improving their teaching practice and the learning environment, while at the same time reducing their workload.

McGill shows how each stage of the teaching process informs the next, building a cyclical framework that underpins everything teachers do. It is aimed at both primary and secondary teachers – regardless of their career stage – and is designed to help them improve classroom practice. The book focuses on the importance of understanding the many components and interrelated elements involved in creating effective learning experiences. 

McGill references recent education research, but also highlights the importance of context; as something that works in one context may not in another.

In listing research, EdCentral makes no judgment or recommendation as to its quality, validity or methodology and none should be inferred. Through peer ratings left by education practitioners, EdCentral’s aim is to support the development of a repository of shared knowledge and experience.
