Mick Waters Introduces Series – a new series of practical books, introduced by Professor Mick Waters. Mick, author of Thinking Allowed on Schooling is best known as former Director of the Curriculum at the QCA (Qualifications and Curriculum Authority) where he gained an heroic reputation amongst teachers while consulting on and explaining the new curriculum, making it relevant and meaningful for professionals working directly with children and young people.

In this new series he showcases what he believes to be the very best in practical resources for the curriculum.

Its aim is to bring philosophy (the study of general and fundamental problems) to the wider community and particularly into disadvantaged schools. The award winning The Philosophy Shop, edited by Peter Worley with contributions from A.C. Grayling and Angie Hobbs, was the first in this series. New titles for 2014 will include Provocation, a philosophy book for secondary schools and The Numberverse, a book which makes maths fun.
