View: 5058

It's every new teacher's first concern and it's an area about which even the most experienced teachers are never complacent - how to control their classes. This new edition of the Teachers Pocketbooks top-selling title is a practical, authoritative guide to creating calm classes and focused, co-operative students. The book starts from the premise that teachers cannot control the behaviour of children; instead they must seek to influence it. Teachers are most effective in managing behaviour when they focus on antecedents and consequences. This means building relationships and using preventative strategies followed by consistent use of logical consequences. The book covers different styles of behaviour management; getting the basics right; eight core principles and a ten-step discipline plan. A section entitled developing the toolkit offers a broad range of strategies for teachers to use. All are explained in practical, classroom terms with examples of phrases to use for maximum effectiveness. Underpinning the repertoire of techniques is a strong framework: the 4Rs rights, responsibilities, rules and routines. Liberal use of cartoons, diagrams, mnemonics and other visual devices reinforce the message and fast-track understanding. "An invaluable guide for all adults who work with children. This book will change the way you think and act in the classroom and should be compulsory reading." Tim Plumb, Head Teacher, Woolwich Polytechnic School "A fantastic read. Buy copies for your staff this year - they'll become more effective by using the approaches outlined in this book." Sarah Skinner, Head, Claydon High School "Provides realistic and effective strategies to empower all teachers to create and establish a positive learning environment for all. I recommend it."

When the Adults Change, Everything Changes

Seismic Shifts in School Behavior

Author: Paul Dix

Publisher: Independent Thinking

ISBN: 9781781352731

Category: Behavior modification

Page: 208

View: 8545

In When the Adults Change, Everything Changes, Paul Dix upends the debate on behaviour management in schools and offers effective tips and strategies that serve to end the search for change in children and turn the focus back on the adults. You can buy in the best behaviour tracking software, introduce 24/7 detentions or scream "NO EXCUSES" as often as you want - but ultimately the solution lies with the behaviour of the adults. It is the only behaviour over which we have absolute control. Drawing on anecdotal case studies, scripted interventions and approaches which have been tried and tested in a range of contexts, from the most challenging urban comprehensives to the most privileged international schools, behaviour training expert and Pivotal Education director Paul Dix advocates an inclusive approach that is practical, transformative and rippling with respect for staff and learners. An approach in which behavioural expectations and boundaries are exemplified by people, not by a thousand rules that nobody can recall. When the Adults Change, Everything Changesllustrates how, with their traditional sanction- and exclusion-led methods, the "punishment brigade" are losing the argument. It outlines how each school can build authentic practice on a stable platform, resulting in shifts in daily rules and routines, in how we deal with the angriest learners, in restorative practice and in how we appreciate positive behaviour. Each chapter is themed and concludes with three helpful checklists - Testing, Watch out for and Nuggets - designed to help you form your own behaviour blueprint. Throughout the book both class teachers and school leaders will find indispensable advice about how to involve all staff in developing a whole school ethos built on kindness, empathy and understanding. Suitable for all head teachers, school leaders, teachers, NQTs and classroom assistants - in any phase or context, including SEND and alternative provision settings - who are looking to upgrade their own classroom management or school behaviour plan.. When the Adults Change, Everything Changes is a fabulous, must-read book for all educators and people working with children and young adults. The strategies should be adopted by all schools as a blueprint for behaviour. If it were, it would dramatically improve learning, make children feel safer and positively change lives. This book oozes common sense and made me significantly reflect on my own practice. I can't wait to share this book with my colleagues and prove, with this evidence, that when the adults change, everything changes! - Rob Hacking, Assistant Head Teacher, Leopold Primary School

The Death and Life of Great American Cities

Author: Jane Jacobs

Publisher: Random House

ISBN: 1448180287

Category: History

Page: 480

View: 5553

In this classic text, Jane Jacobs set out to produce an attack on current city planning and rebuilding and to introduce new principles by which these should be governed. The result is one of the most stimulating books on cities ever written. Throughout the post-war period, planners temperamentally unsympathetic to cities have been let loose on our urban environment. Inspired by the ideals of the Garden City or Le Corbusier's Radiant City, they have dreamt up ambitious projects based on self-contained neighbourhoods, super-blocks, rigid 'scientific' plans and endless acres of grass. Yet they seldom stop to look at what actually works on the ground. The real vitality of cities, argues Jacobs, lies in their diversity, architectural variety, teeming street life and human scale. It is only when we appreciate such fundamental realities that we can hope to create cities that are safe, interesting and economically viable, as well as places that people want to live in. 'Perhaps the most influential single work in the history of town planning... Jacobs has a powerful sense of narrative, a lively wit, a talent for surprise and the ability to touch the emotions as well as the mind' New York Times Book Review
