Guerrilla Teaching is a revolution. Not a flag-waving, drum-beating revolution, but an underground revolution. It’s not about changing policy or influencing government; it’s about doing what you know to be right, regardless of what you’re told. It’s a book its author never meant to write, but it was just too important not to.

Praise for Guerrilla Teaching:

"A wonderful escape to teaching that is gripping and enjoyable - engage with this book and be a learning guerrilla!"

Mick Waters, Professor of Education, Wolverhampton University

"Full of great ideas to take immediately into the classroom and a philosophy that is refreshing and forward thinking. A great read for the next generation of teachers!"

Dr Jonathan Doherty, Head of Primary Education, Leeds Trinity University

"Jonathan Lear is the voice of the true expert – the excellent classroom teacher who, through experience and experimentation, knows what works for his pupils and is not prepared to let outside interference get in the way of doing what he knows is right for their education and wellbeing."

Joe Carter, Editor, Teach Primary

"Guerrilla Teaching is a great, practical and inspirational book for any teacher at any point in their career. It’s refreshing to find a book that offers support and advice that will actually make a difference to the way the children we teach learn and enjoy school. It’s a book that reminds us to consider the type of people we want our children to grow up to be and how to help them achieve that. It reminded me why I choose teaching as a career."

Emma Stevenson, Senior Learning Support Teacher, Fir Vale Family of Schools
