    This book really is a little gem! Packed full of literacy and numeracy ideas for improving and developing English and Maths, it serves a particular need insomuch as it is entirely FE specific - but by no means exclusive. Anyone who works in Further Education will recognise many of the scenarios given - but may not be instantly familiar with the strategies which are required to develop the learning. Here's where this book comes into its own. The suggestions provided cover a range of vocational curriculum subjects, offer a straightforward approach and, best of all, are wonderfully learner-centred. The 'in a nutshell' summary of each strategy provides no-nonsense ideas which are 'good to go' for a range of Teaching and Learning scenarios. This publication may also prove invaluable for trainee FE teachers who are undertaking qualifications such as DiET, CertEd or PGCE - but is also wide-ranging enough to appeal to experienced, well-seasoned staff - especially those who may be looking for... More > fresh ideas to use with new learners or in those all-important lesson observations! It seems, however, that the real beauty of this book is that it caters for a real niche market that is not well documented in current literature - i.e. there just isn't a great deal written about what is commonly referred to as 'embedding literacy and numeracy' in the FE sector. That said, the ethos of this book is to "ditch the expression 'embed English and maths,' in favour of more meaningful and focussed development of these core skills." Due to the practical nature of the methods suggested, this ethos appears to work surprisingly well. Dan Williams has created an excellent guide for teachers who may be looking for simple, yet effective, solutions for developing English and maths skills in class. In addition, Dan provides a wealth of ideas via his @FurtherEdagogy Twitter page and blog - which are also well worth a look. I'm already looking forward to reading Dan's next publication!< Less
