High Impact Teaching books

I’ve written 4 books for teachers. Each one stitches together the best available evidence on a key topic into a coherent and actionable framework that you can use to power up your teaching 💪 AND they’re super concise—you can read each in less than an hour.

“I doubt you’ll find an education book with more useful insights per minute of reading time.” — Dylan Wiliam, Emeritus Professor of Educational Assessment at UCL

“It’s not easy to write a book that is simultaneously brief, packed with ideas, and clear, but Peps has done it.” — Daniel Willingham, Professor of Psychology at University of Virginia

Which is best for you? Here’re my recommendations:

  • Lean Lesson Planning → A solid introduction for those seeking some basic, evidence-informed principles for learning design.
  • Memorable Teaching → Best for folks keen to understand how to apply ideas from cognitive science to the classroom.
  • Motivated Teaching → Best for teachers interested in how social, emotional, and cultural research can guide our practice.
  • Developing Expert Teaching → The cherry on the top, essential reading for anyone who helps other teachers to get better.

If you ever fancy ordering a batch for your school, just drop me a message… I can ship bulk orders (50+) at a hefty discount.
