Today it is one week until Ross Morrison McGill’s second book publishes. The office is buzzing with excitement that tomorrow we will see the finished product for the first time and fizzing with energy as we finalise the details for the launch next week on publication day.
It’s all very exciting!
We are very proud that the most followed teacher on Twitter in the UK has written a book for us. Ross is an absolute star and his new book is not going to disappoint. As well as being packed full of ideas and anecdotes, the page layout is quirky and original and very different to anything we have done before… Have a look in our book sample to see for yourself!
You will see it includes a brand new-look #5MinMarkingPlan and there is a new-look version of the hugely popular #5MinLessonPlan in there too. And there is also a brand new, never seen before 5 minute plan that we know is going to go down a treat – you’ll have to wait until you get your copy to see what it is though!
You may have noticed we have been having a bit of fun on Vine this week as well, recreating one of the many fabulous illustrations that the book is filled with created by the talented Polly Norton. Try and guess which one we are re-creating here:
Yes – our Vitruvian Teacher gets everywhere – watch out for him in more videos as we continue the countdown to publication! Look at him here – this is his one week till publication day dance!
Also this week on our Twitter account we revealed our competition to win a pair of tickets to the book launch next Thursday. All you have to do is follow and retweet us! If you haven’t done it already and you want to come and visit us at Bloomsbury HQ to raise a glass to Ross and get a free signed copy of his book AS WELL as to meet the man himself – get retweeting now!
As we countdown the last seven days until you can get your hands on a copy of Teacher Toolkit we will be sharing more exclusive content and videos, but for now I am going to leave you with our beautiful interactive cover illustrated by Jean Jullien.
