Judging by the proliferation of Christmas decorations that have suddenly manifestived themselves up and down our high streets the length and breadth of the country, All Change Please! can only assume that Xmas must be but a couple of weeks away, and that its calendar has got somehow stuck in early November.

Anyway, as its readers are now doubtless lying awake at nights worrying about what to give each other for gifts surely destined to coldly furnish forth the charity shops in the New Year, All Change Please! is proud to present its untimely Christmas Gift Guide

Top of the tree must surely be…

If you know of someone who would enjoy a fascinating, meticulously researched and highly analytic account of Gove’s personal experience of teaching that underpins his education policies, then this book is going to make the ideal present this Christmas.  Cleverly structured under a series of comprehensive chapter titles, the reader will quickly and easily grasp the true depth and breadth of Gove’s pedagogical insights.  An ideal stocking filler that surely a lot of teachers are going to be receiving?

To avoid disappointment, make sure you click on the link above to read the product description and check out the ‘Look Inside’!

Meanwhile if grizzly mysteries are more to your taste, perhaps ‘The Ofsted Murders’ will tick your box. Initial reviews of this book indicated that it was an outstanding novel, but more recent comments by those who just read a few randomly chosen paragraphs suggest that it requires improvement if it is to avoid being forcibly turned into an academic tome.

And finally, if you know any teachers who are a bit of a mug for spending hours writing highly detailed lesson plans and doing everything their Senior Management say without question, then this could just be the gift they need.

Ho! Ho! Ho! And a Merry November to you too…
