Stop Bullying Pocketbook
Bullying - Repeated intimidation intentionally carried out by a more powerful person or group in order to cause physical and/or emotional hurtA . It happens in every type of school and in all classes and cultures; it's a problem for thousands of children and increasing numbers of teachers, and it's the reason several young people a year commit suicide. In recent years, a new insidious form of bullying has emerged: cyber bullying. It's the fastest-growing type of bullying, leaving victims vulnerable 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This second edition of the Stop Bullying Pocketbook is about what to do to prevent and stop all forms of bullying in schools. This extensively illustrated book is full of practical suggestions for both teachers and students. For teachers there are in-service training exercises; advice to give parents; practical tips about creating an environment that deters bullies; what to say to bullies and victims and an action plan for creating a bully-free school. A range of awareness-raising ideas for pupils can be readily incorporated into teaching plans, while authoritative chapters on what is known about bullying and on understanding bullies and victims place everything in context. Though firmly advocating adult intervention, the book is equally clear that children and young people need strategies they can use themselves. Numerous ideas and exercises are provided for use with pupils to help them avoid or deflect bullying. These include showing them how to communicate differently; how to say (and shout) no; how to 'fog' insults and what to do about cyber bullying. There are also several simple but effective ideas for interactive work exploring bullying through drama, poetry, story and discussion. Michele Elliott, child psychologist and founder of anti-bullying charity Kidscape, has an OBE for services to children. She draws on 40 years' experience teaching and running Kidscape, has chaired Home Office and WHO Committees and worked with the DCSF, Childline and NSPCC.

This book compares ways in which children's rights in, to, and through education, formal and informal, are viewed and implemented in a variety of social and political contexts, aiming to shed light on how policies and practices can improve equal access to high quality education in an environment which is respectful of children's rights.

Faith Schools and Society: Civilizing the Debate
- Do faith schools have a place in a plural society? - Which types of school contribute most effectively to a plural society? This fascinating monograph seeks to answer these questions and more by exploring the fit between personal, spiritual and academic goals in contemporary educational experience and individual school cultures. Jo Cairns, a well-respected authority on faith schools, argues that educational ideology in plural societies has to find a way of recognizing and responding to the 'predicament' of pluralism as it is experienced by individuals and communities. This provocative and challenging book will undoubtedly stimulate debate among educationists across the world.

Teacher Leadership: The New Foundations of Teacher Education : A Reader
Over the past two decades, numerous textbooks have been published on teacher leadership; however, this is the only volume that provides a definitive overview of the scholarship and writing being done in the field of teacher leadership. This book introduces the reader to the scholarship of over 35 authors, and thus, becomes an essential tool needed to guide any meaningful discussion of the changing roles and responsibilities of teachers. As an important component of revisioned teacher education programs and most current state standards for teacher licensure, teacher leadership is emerging as a central theme in all foundations of education classes. This book acknowledges the important role of teacher leadership in the reform of schools and discusses teacher leadership within the context of teachers' work. Organized around six key topics, the book explores the many facets of teacher leadership and examines the impact of teacher leadership on school culture, student learning, professional learning communities and 21st century schools. Additional references and website links are also provided. Teacher Leadership: The New Foundations of Teacher Education - a Reader is intended for undergraduate and graduate education students.

Creating the Opportunity to Learn: Moving from Research to Practice to Close the Achievement Gap
After years of applying more pressure on schools to raise achievement levels for all students, particularly those who underperform their mainstream peers, the achievement gap today remains virtually unchanged. But the reality is that there's proof that, under the right conditions, all students can achieve at high levels. Instead of quick-fix reforms that promise miracles but deliver little, here's a book that delves into the research to provide you with realistic solutions for catching up children in danger of failing and dropping out. Two giants in the fields of education, psychology, and equity-A. Wade Boykin and Pedro Noguera-reveal bold truths about the achievement gap, including: Why it's a mistake to explain and rationalize the persistence of the achievement gap on the basis of a single influence, such as poverty, family background, or culture. What is wrong with popular approaches to closing the achievement gap. Why it is critical to focus on the assets that each student brings to the classroom, rather than on the perceived deficiencies. Why pluralizing the cultural conditions in schools increases the possibility that a greater number of students-from a wider range of backgrounds-will learn. Drawing from the evidence from successful schools, this definitive text provides you with a promising framework for addressing the key actions that need to be replicated in schools everywhere, such as: Promoting and enhancing student engagement in learning and addressing avoidance behaviors. Raising the levels of three key personal behaviors: self-efficacy, self-regulated learning, and incremental ability beliefs about intelligence. Cultivating constructive classroom dynamics and transactions such as positive teacher student relationships and collaborative learning. Here's your opportunity to understand why some school districts are making more progress than others, to make sure you're focused on what really works, and to build the capacity of high-performance, high-poverty schools.

Student Feedback: The Cornerstone to an Effective Quality Assurance System in Higher Education
In recent years, student feedback has appeared at the forefront of higher education quality. In particular, the issues of effectiveness and the use of student feedback to affect improvement in higher education teaching and learning, and also other areas of student tertiary experience. Despite this, there has been a relative lack of academic literature, especially in book format, focusing on the experiences of academics, higher education leaders and managers with expertise in this area. This comprehensive book addresses this gap. With contributions by experts in the area of higher education quality (academics, higher education leaders and managers) from a range of countries the book is concerned with the practices and theory of evaluation in higher education quality, in particular the issue of student feedback.

My First Year In Purgatory
My First Year In Purgatory is a memoir with illustrations, about my adventures and insights as a Gen Xer teaching in a crumbling inner city school district. In it, I lead two semi-functional lives: embattled educator by day -whose students make Damien from the Omen look like a lightweight, and urban adventurer by night. I witness teachers driven out of classrooms by students they can't control, bullies given free reign to torment the weak, chaos that makes learning nearly impossible, and administrators who sweep discipline under the rug. Weekends, I scour art openings, cafes, bars and the Internet for romance, meaning, and escape. As I struggle through my first year, I begin to suspect that that all those movies and books about the dedicated teacher who won over those tough kids are a myth; and that there is a crisis in discipline that can't be solved by lone heroes.

Education in Britain: 1944 to the Present
Education in Britain has been transformed over the last 50 years. State education systems have expanded hugely, and levels of achievement and participation have continuously risen. At the same time, society has become 'educationalizeda : the home, the workplace, the holiday and the playgroup are seen as sites for learning, in ways that increasingly connect to the acquisition of formally--defined skills and knowledges. Yet for most of the postwar period, education policy has been dominated by questions of 'failurea 'crisisa and 'declinea . Half a century of reform has far from eliminated substantial inequalities, and the 'conservatisma of education in the face of major cultural and economic change remains a central political issue. This book seeks to describe and explain the patterning of change and continuity in British education, and to account for the persistence of the controversies which have accompanied it. In doing so, it combines economic, political, cultural and social approaches to the study of education.

Living and Learning with Blind Children: A Guide for Parents and Teachers of Visually Impaired Children
Blind and visually impaired children experience the world in unique ways. To help them learn and develop, parents and teachers need to understand how such children relate to their environment. Felicity Harrison and Mary Crow, who have spent years working with blind children and their families, offer practical strategies for encouraging the blind child's development and interaction with his or her family and school community. The authors begin by discussing the reactions of parents when they learn their child is visually impaired, perhaps even multihandicapped. They go on to provide insights into what it means not to see well and techniques for encouraging the child to use whatever vision he or she may have. They suggest activities that parents or teachers can share with a blind child, from songs, games, and crafts to projects around the house and ways to enjoy a walk together. They discuss the nursery school experience and offer ideas on how to make it enjoyable and rewarding. A final chapter addresses preventive and remedial measures; it focuses on the nonvisual perspective and explains how to perceive things from the blind child's point of view. Parents and preschool teachers of visually impaired children will find this a welcome guide to coping with day-to-day challenges and enhancing the child's education and development.

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

Organizing Schools for Productive Learning
A major problem confronting schools is that many students are turned off from learning and are bored. Boredom is destructive of learning. The No Child Left Behind (NCLB) initiative of the US government (2001) stemmed from the claim - accompanied by sharp debates pro and con - that many schools in the United States fail to achieve basic educational objectives, and that many schools are doing a poor job for a wide variety of reasons and surely not just because of student boredom (Brigham, Gustashaw, Wiley, & Brigham, 2004; Essex, 2006; Goodman, Shannon, Goodman, & Rapoport, 2004; Sunderman, Tracey Jr. , Kim, & Orfield, 2004). The model of school organization and instruction presented here seeks to provide an effective plan for significant improvement in secondary school education, one of whose central aims is to make students genuinely engaged in what they are learning. The NCLB legislation emphasizes, inter alia, the need for school improvement. Without it one cannot reasonably anticipate improvement over current levels in student engagement in learning and in academic achievement. The NCLB literature frequently employs the term school improvement to refer to the quality of the teachers, such as their academic credentials, instructional competence, and their knowledge of subject matter. Similarly, school restructuring is said to include steps such as transforming the school into a charter school, replacing the teaching staff, or inviting a private company to administer the school. The use of those terms in this work is distinctly different.
