Managing to Motivate: A Guide for School Leaders

The media, policy makers, teachers' unions, and a multitude of others have opinions on how leaders should motivate staff, but what really works?In this timely and constructive book, Linda Evans draws from a wealth of evidence and experience to answer this question. She shares examples drawn from a range of educational settings, from schools for young children to colleges for older students, and shows the contrast between successful and unsuccessful management of teachers' motivation.

Reclaiming Education
What is wrong with education? Why do educational reforms always miss their target? How can we create a better education system? And what can we learn from other countries? Reclaiming Education tackles the challenges facing education that really matter - hte ones that academics often ignore, parents demand solution to and politicians need to confront. Drawing on his global research, James Tooley shows that there is an alternative to poor quality and wasteful inefficiency in education, and that education can be radically transformed to guarantee freedom and higher standards. Tooley radically challenges any complacency we may have about education in the 21st century. Sir Bob Salisbury Tooley is an extremist: some of his ideas are outrageous! Professor Geoffrey Walford, University of Oxford This is truly a radical book. It should be read by everyone who thinks deeply about education. Sir Christopher Ball

School Management and Effectiveness in Developing Countries: The Post-bureaucratic School
This book is quite different from existing 'Western' books on school effectiveness. It describes and analyses the way in which schools operate in developing countries and also tries to explain why they are as they are. Examining them at three levels - the macro, the meso and the micro - the authors use a theoretical framework that they have termed 'post-bureaucracy.' The book has four interlinked sections. First the authors examine the existing economic and theoretical contexts around school effectiveness, including an analysis of the causes of economic crisis and its impact on school management. In the second section the analysis of schools as bureaucratic facades is proposed. The reality of school life, from which any theory of school effectiveness must derive, is illustrated by an ethnographic account of the job of the headteacher in developing countries. The third section explores different ways to understand this reality, operating on three levels: global relationships, national and community cultures, and individual agency. In the final section Haber and Davies draw these levels and realities together.They argue for the democratization of schools as the only way forward for effective education fordevelopment.

Teaching Happiness and Well-being in Schools: Learning to Ride Elephants
This book provides an introduction to the theory of positive psychology and a practical guide on how to implement the theory in (primarily secondary) schools. There has recently been an explosion of interest in positive psychology and the teaching of well-being and 'happiness' in PSHE in schools and many teachers are looking for clear information on how to implement these potentially life-changing ideas in the classroom. Wellington College, where Ian Morris is head of philosophy, religion and PSHE, is among the first UK schools to introduce a formal well-being and happiness curriculum developed by the author.

Display for Learning
Display has long been seen as a tool for learning in primary schools but this practical and timely book shows its value in whole school improvement for secondary and post-16. Walking through an entrance hall speaks volumes about the ethos of a school. The physical environment supported by display and signs allow visitors to make a judgement about the school and this judgement, correctly or not, will be based on what the visitor first sees. In some schools this first impression exudes positivism - display celebrates achievement and success, there are images of happy learners, learning focused signs and statements, and the environment seems cared for and respected. In others, negative statements confront visitors, the environment is neglected and unloved, there are no references to learning in the entrance to the school.The current educational agenda identifies learner wellbeing as the key determinant in achievement and outcome. How the learning environment is designed can have a huge impact on wellbeing. One particular aspect that has a powerful influence on this environment is the use of display space. Managed well, it can create a climate where students feel valued and nurtured, and can achieve beyond their potential.Display should transcend simple physical appearance. Successful and meaningful display reflects the ethos of a school, and an exciting, learning-focused environment makes for excited learners. An environment that mirrors respect and care makes learners feel cared for and respected by the place in which they learn. This positively impacts on how well students learn, how happy they are as they learn and the respect and care with which they treat their school; the same applies to staff. The signs used around schools and the messages that signage and display deliver are key to a learning-focused climate and they reinforce a school's ethos. Care for the school environment and classrooms shows care for the students, and for teachers and other staff. This impression is quickly passed to parents and visitors to the school.This book aims to address a gap in the market for secondary school leaders and teachers (with transferable lessons for primary and 16 - 19 colleges) and provide a toolkit to develop display for learning with strategies and solutions, within the context of the school improvement and transformation agenda. The book aims to inspire colleagues in schools to develop this in their classrooms and on a whole school level - with the motivation and justification for doing so.

Making a Drama Out of a Crisis: Drama Techniques for Improving Behaviour Management in the Classroom
This is an exciting new resource that tackles behaviour management in a fresh, accessible and imaginative way. This book contains dozens of unique drama exercises and games that can be used right across the primary age range to calm tempers, stop restlessness and regain the attention of unruly pupils. Exercises and games include The Hamster's Underpants, which is designed to stop fidgeting instantly among primary school pupils, and The Bottle Ale Rascal, which puts an end to rudeness and bad language in the classroom once and for all.Focusing on everyday areas of classroom conduct such as fighting, jealousy, concentration, bad language and lapses of attention, this book is packed with tried and tested theatre based games and exercises. Teachers are able to use these with little or no preparation time. The outcome will help modify students' behaviour using exercises which readily fit with the new UK Primary Strategy and the revised literacy strategy which has a particular focus on speaking and listening. This resource offers sound advice about where to turn for help is teachers suspect more serious behavioural issues, such as ADHD.Since staging a play encourages teamwork and cooperation as well as a host of other skills, the book includes a play script for a class production of Aladdin, together with all the information and support teachers might need. Whether teachers need to manage unruly pupils or just work more effectively with their class as a whole, the exercises presented here will give them plenty of scope to work drama into their lessons. If your students misbehave, don't make a mountain out of a molehill - make a drama out of a crisis!

How to Survive an Ofsted Inspection
If the phrase NO NOTICE INSPECTION strikes fear into your heart, don't panic! In her new book, Sarah Findlater covers everything you need to know to survive an Ofsted inspection. This book is an invaluable guide for every teacher who wants to ensure they are fully prepared for their first Ofsted inspection, perform in an outstanding manner and get as much out of the process as possible. The chapters are split into four phases, making it relevant whether you want to set up systems and improve day-to-day teaching well in advance, you need quick-fix 'night before' advice, last minute 'on the day' strategies, or you need help making the most of Ofsted feedback once the inspection is over. Everything you need to consider to make all areas of your teaching ready for observation are included in this guide, as well as: - practical strategies for improving key areas inspected by Ofsted including closing the achievement gap and literacy and numeracy provision - 'inspection connection' boxes comprising analysis of key areas of the Ofsted school inspection handbook - logistical details of everything that will happen before, during and after the inspection - from the moment the phone call is received to the submission of the inspector's final report - extracts from outstanding inspection reports - printable templates and checklists - 'remaining cool, calm and collected tips' to help reduce (or hide!) your stress levels on the day. All written from Sarah's first hand experience of supporting teachers through inspections (and surviving quite a few of her own!), How to survive an Ofsted inspection is a practical and very accessible guide for every primary and secondary school teacher preparing for Ofsted.

Deleuze and Guattari, Politics and Education: For a People-Yet-to-Come
Deleuze & Guattari, Politics and Education mobilizes Deleuzian-Guattarian philosophy as a revolutionary alternative to the lingering forms of transcendence, identity politics, and nihilism endemic to Western thought. Operationalizing Deleuze and Guattari's challenge to contemporary philosophy, this book presents their view as a revolutionary alternative to the lingering forms of transcendence, identity politics, and nihilism endemic to the current state of Western formal education. This book offers an experimental approach to theorizing, creating an entirely new way for educational theorists to approach their work as the task of revolutionizing life itself. Examining new conceptual resources for grappling with and mapping a sustainable political alternative to the cliche's that saturate contemporary educational theory, this collection of essays works toward extracting a genuine image of education and learning that exists in sharp contrast to both the neo-liberal educational project and the critical pedagogical tradition.

For the University: Democracy and the Future of the Institution
For the University is a book both about and for the university in an age of mass and globalized education. Thomas Docherty analyses the current problems facing the university as an institution, and also offers some positive arguments for a revived and vibrant set of institutional arrangements and governing principles. The book considers the place of the university as an important global institution, now in a charged political and international public sphere. Docherty places current debates within their wider economic and political context, focusing on the relationship of the university to current and emerging models of democracy. The question of what the university will be -- rather than it is, was, or might be -- is at the heart of this book, and Docherty ably traces its history and present condition in order to offer us a vision for the future.
