Some Kids I Taught and What They Taught Me
'The best book on teachers and children and writing that I've ever read. No-one has said better so much of what so badly needs saying' - Philip Pullman Kate Clanchy wants to change the world and thinks school is an excellent place to do it. She invites you to meet some of the kids she has taught in her thirty-year career. Join her as she explains everything about sex to a classroom of thirteen-year-olds. As she works in the school 'Inclusion Unit', trying to improve the fortunes of kids excluded from regular lessons because of their terrifying power to end learning in an instant. Or as she nurtures her multicultural poetry group, full of migrants and refugees, watches them find their voice and produce work of heartbreaking brilliance. While Clanchy doesn't deny stinging humiliations or hide painful accidents, she celebrates this most creative, passionate and practically useful of jobs. Teaching today is all too often demeaned, diminished and drastically under-resourced. Some Kids I Taught and What They Taught Me will show you why it shouldn't be.

Developing Writers Across the Primary and Secondary Years: Growing into Writing
Writing development and pedagogy is a high priority area, particularly with standardised testing showing declines in writing across time and through the years of schooling. However, to date there are relatively few texts for teachers and teacher educators which detail how best to enable the children to become confident, autonomous and agentic writers of the future. Developing Writers Across the Primary and Secondary Years provides cumulative insights into how writing develops and how it can be taught across years of compulsory schooling. This edited collection is a timely and original contribution, addressing a significant literacy need for teachers of writing across three key stages of writing development, covering early (4-7 years old), primary (7-12 years old) and secondary years (12-16 years old) in Anglophone countries. Each section addresses two broader themes - becoming a writer with a child-oriented focus and writing pedagogy with a teacher-oriented focus. Together, the book brings to bear rigorous research and deep professional understanding of the writing classroom. It offers a novel approach conceiving of writing development as a dynamic and multidimensional concept. Such an integrated interdisciplinary understanding enables pedagogical thinking and development to address more holistically the complex act of writing.

Powering Up Your School: The Learning Power Approach to school leadership
Illustrates in detail how school leaders can successfully embed the Learning Power Approach (LPA) in their school's culture and empower teachers to deliver its benefits to their students. The LPA is a pedagogical formula which aims to develop all students as confident and capable learners ready, willing, and able to choose, design, research, pursue, troubleshoot, and evaluate learning for themselves, alone and with others, in school and out. This approach also affords a clear view of the valued, sought-after outcomes of education developing character strengths as well as striving for academic success which underpin everything in the school: the curriculum content, the structure of the timetable, the forms of assessment, communication with parents, and the pedagogical style of every member of staff. The school leader's job, therefore, is to provide direction and signal the standards aimed for in all these different aspects of school life and Powering Up Your School sets out a detailed explanation of how this can be accomplished. It distils into a series of illuminating case studies the lessons learned by a wide range of school principals who have successfully undertaken the LPA journey, and presents a variety of practical strategies geared to enable school leaders to make a positive impact on the lives of both their staff and their students. Powering Up Your School is the fourth instalment in the Learning Power series.

Sweet Distress: How our love affair with feelings has fuelled the current mental health crisis (and what we can do about it)
Cutting its way through the media frenzy and over-sentimentality surrounding the mental health crisis, this is a book of loving logic which puts emotional well-being and resilience centre stage. As individuals and consumers in the 21st century, we want everything immediately and we want it all to be easy and sweet: no unnecessary chewing, plenty of moreish flavour, instant gratification. And therein lies one of the main problems at the heart of the mental health crisis. We have been lulled into thinking all should be instant and off-the-shelf, yet our self-gratifying behaviour is just as bad for our mental wellbeing as it is for our physical well-being. It's time for some tough talking. What we all want, and indeed need, is a solution to the crisis and in Sweet Distress Gillian Bridge aims to deliver that in as straightforward a way as possible. Packed with realistic and effective takeaway strategies for parents and educators, Sweet Distress challenges under-researched but over-promoted ideology and provides real, evidence-based help and advice for anyone wanting to improve the mental health of those they care about.

Forget School: Why young people are succeeding on their own terms and what schools can do to avoid being left behind
Young people need to network effectively, manage their finances responsibly, be digitally proficient and be alert to the world around them. If school does not respond quickly, then today's youth will no longer see any relevance to their education as they look to tomorrow. A distance is already growing - as examinations and outdated curricula lose their authority - which means schools need to look again at their offer, for the young have already made up their minds to move on. Told from the perspective of young self-employed adults, Martin Illingworth's Forget School provides key insights into the ways schooling can be recalibrated to better support young people as they prepare to enter the rapidly changing world of the 21st century.

Diversity, Transformative Knowledge, and Civic Education: Selected Essays
The essays collected in this book, by James A. Banks, a foundational figure in the field of multicultural education, illuminate the interconnection between the author's work on knowledge construction and civic education. Both poignant and personal, Banks shares some of his most groundbreaking and innovative work. Diversity, Transformative Knowledge, and Civic Education aims to unpack the citizenship-education dilemma, whereby education programs strive to teach students democratic ideals and values within social, economic, political, and educational contexts that contradict justice, equality, and human rights. For change to take place, students need to internalize democratic values, by directly experiencing them in transformative classrooms and schools that are envisioned and described in this book. Drawn from Banks' formidable canon, this collection highlights the conceptual, curricular, and pedagogical issues related to this dilemma, and signals a fundamental shift towards transformative citizenship education. Students, scholars and educators in the fields of multicultural education, civic education, social studies education, comparative education, and the foundations of education will find this book to be a valuable resource for discussion and discovery.

Emerging Biology in the Early Years: How Young Children Learn about the Living World
This inspiring text celebrates young children as emergent biologists and explains how their natural inquisitiveness and curiosity can be harnessed to increase early understanding of scientific concepts, and so lay the foundations for future learning about the living world. Full of practical tips, suggested discussion points and hands-on activities, Emerging Biology in the Early Years is a uniquely child-focussed resource. Chapters provide key information on the physical environment, including weather phenomena and soils, plants, animals, and human development, and prioritise the child's perspective to offer activities which are in line with their natural development, thereby provoking discussion, problem-solving, and child-led investigation. From planting seeds, to classifying rocks, flowers and animals, to understanding growth processes, and recognising anatomical features, the book takes a holistic approach to science which moves beyond the confines of the curriculum and the classroom and shows how biology can be taught in a fun, engaging and inexpensive way both at home and in the early years setting. Providing a rich collection of ideas, activities, and downloadable sheets, this will be an invaluable resource for early years practitioners and parents looking to develop young children's scientific skills and understanding.

Independent Thinking on Teaching and Learning: Developing independence and resilience in all teachers and learners
A pragmatic, practical guide to help teachers grow, flourish and become the outstanding educators who make a meaningful difference to the lives of their learners. All the evidence shows that the most valuable assets of any successful school are the teachers. No matter what changes are made to systems or to the curriculum, one certainty remains: children will be helped or hindered in their learning, job prospects, life chances and, indeed, happiness by the teachers they come across during their time in the education system. In this all-encompassing book on teaching and learning, experienced educator Jackie Beere sets out to re-energise teachers' passion and enthusiasm for their profession and help them develop a flexible, multifaceted pedagogical approach which adapts and responds to individual learners' needs. The book champions both children and teachers as learners in the classroom and together with sage advice on how to develop in all pupils the habits of independent learning shares great practice that delivers outstanding outcomes for all teachers. Independent Thinking on Teaching and Learning contains some material previously published in The Perfect Lesson (ISBN 9781781352441) and The (Practically) Perfect Teacher (ISBN 9781781352526), and is one of a number of books in the Independent Thinking On ...series from the award-winning Independent Thinking Press.

Independent Thinking on Laughter: Using humour as a tool to engage and motivate all learners
An uplifting manifesto packed with tips and techniques to help educators unleash the power of humour and laughter in the learning environment. Education is too important to be taken seriously: everyone in our schools from the youngest learner to the, ahem, 'most senior' teacher likes to laugh. And beyond the many stress-busting and morale-boosting benefits that laughter brings on an individual level, the collective rewards of laughter in the classroom setting are also numerous such as enhancing openness and teamwork, stimulating imagination and creativity and, above all, strengthening the student teacher relationship. No one is more familiar with the power of classroom conviviality than stand-up educationalist Dave Keeling, who in this book takes readers on an enlightening journey into the part that humour can play in improving the learning experience for all concerned. Writing with his trademark wit, Dave shares handy hints acquired from his experience in the world of comedy and offers a veritable smorgasbord of activities for use with learners all proven to generate laughter, enhance learning and make the teacher look great. The teacher's mission, if they choose to accept it, is to take these ideas and exercises and adopt, adapt, enjoy, explore and generally mess about with them to their heart's content. Independent Thinking on Laughter is an updated edition of The Little Book of Laughter (ISBN 9781781350089) and is one of a number of books in the Independent Thinking On series from the award-winning Independent Thinking Press.

Independent Thinking on Transition: Fostering better collaboration between primary and secondary schools
An inspirational compendium of practical tips and strategies to empower primary and secondary schools to work together to get transition right. When it comes to looking at the quality of our current schooling system, the biggest elephant in the room is transition. We do it the way we've always done it and, in so many ways and despite our best intentions, we end up doing it badly. Which is where Dave Harris comes in. With an impressive track record in leadership that includes establishing a through-school by merging what had been three separate schools infant, primary and secondary Dave knows first-hand how much can be achieved when all phases work together and when they keep the children, not the system, at the heart of all they do. In this book he tackles school transition head-on, vividly illustrating how primary and secondary schools can better collaborate to ensure their pupils enjoy a smooth and effective move between the two phases. Dave's passion for joined-up thinking between different phases shines through in his writing, as does his ingenuity when it comes to the design and delivery of programmes that position young people at the heart of the process. Independent Thinking on Transition is one of a number of books in the Independent Thinking On series from the award-winning Independent Thinking Press.

As families are looking for better ways to educate their children, more and more of them are becoming interested and engaged in alternative ways of schooling that are different, separate, or opposite of the traditional classroom. Homeschooling has become ever more creative and varied as families create custom-tailored curricula, assignments, goals, and strategies that are best for each unique child. This presents a multitude of challenges and opportunities for information institutions, including public, academic, school, and special libraries. The need for librarians to help homeschool families become information and media literate is more important than ever. This collection of essays provides a range of approaches and strategies suggested by skilled professionals as well as veteran homeschool parents on how to best serve the diverse needs and learning experiences of homeschooled youth. It includes information on needs assessments for special needs students, gifted students, and African American students; advice on how to provide support for the families of homeschoolers; case studies; and information on new technologies that could benefit libraries and the homeschooler populations that they serve.

Learning a new language has the power to transform a life, as well as help break down the barriers that seem to be re-emerging between nations, cultures and people. Yet few people in the UK look back on their MFL lessons with fondness, and even fewer can go beyond the basics of bitte, por favor or s'il vous plait when they do attempt to stretch their foreign tongues. They would, however, if they'd had Crista Hazell as their teacher. Drawing on her many years of experience as an MFL teacher, head of department and senior leadership team member, Crista takes teachers on a tour of how to get the teaching of a new language right. From how to hook students in the minute they enter the classroom to ensuring that the vocabulary sticks, Crista shares tips, techniques and inspirational ideas geared to help teachers build confidence, increase enjoyment and improve outcomes as they take their MFL teaching to a whole new level.

Chinese International Students and Citizenship: A Case Study in New Zealand
This book investigates how Chinese international students reconfigure their sense of themselves as citizens when they reflect on what Chinese citizenship means in the context of New Zealand. Adopting a case study approach, it develops a theory relating to the thoughts of Chinese international students; the theory is based on the communities, schools, family and state relationships of both their past and their contemporary daily experiences. It finds that the struggles of Chinese young people lie in between being individuals and submitting to the general will of the family, state and guanxi (a Chinese concept of interpersonal relationships). The book argues that the Western literature on citizenship is not sufficient in helping us understand how it is viewed in the Chinese contexts. It offers readers a picture of what citizenship means for Chinese young people and the role of citizenship education in Modern Chinese society, and demonstrates that the Chinese young people studied re-educated themselves on citizenship in a way that is unstable and emotional. This book makes important contributions to the literature on Chinese students who are studying abroad by going beyond the well-researched topics of academic and social experience to explore deeper understandings of each individual student's relationship to family and the state in China and how the study abroad experience has developed new understandings of individual's relationships to China, and new possibilities for contributing to Chinese society on return.

Lucid and engaging, this book will be of great interest to scholars and researchers of social theory, education, politics and public policy.

This ambitious book outlines the theoretical and practical implications of the recent technological revolution of human/non-human relations for social researchers, and in so doing, seeks to develop more adequate theoretical and methodological models for social scientists to describe and investigate these social transformations and their consequences. The environmental strategies to balance human actions with the earth's resources utilizing a sustainable approach can inspire original conceptualizations and, therefore, a new sociological paradigm rooted in a necessary rethinking of the dualism between nature and culture, and of human relations in a hyper-connected society increasingly composed by non-human elements. Chapter discussions include: Sustainability and the crisis of the theoretical functional model Environmental sustainability and the evolution of capitalism From moral imperatives to indicators and indices: a methodology for validating and assessing SDGs An understanding of psychopathological syndromes related to social environments Social research between participation and critical detachment Perspectives for a New Social Theory of Sustainability emphasizes that not only are modernist theories of unlimited wealth and progress no longer supportable, but also that their theoretical and empirical settings must be reassessed if society is to move towards sustainability. It promises to be required reading for students and researchers in sociology, psychology, economics and statistics, as well as professionals within government organizations and NGOs focused on human rights work, global inequities, ethical activism, and the UN Agenda 2030 and its Sustainable Development Goals. This book provides a unique toolkit for politicians and citizens on sustainable development and how it is fulfilled everyday. David Maria SASSOLI

Developing and Utilizing Employability Capitals: Graduates' Strategies across Labour Markets
Graduate employability is a significant concern for most higher education institutions worldwide. During the last two decades, universities have attempted to implement their employability agendas to support their students to enhance employment outcomes. However, within today's globalized labour markets, employability has gone far beyond the notion of obtaining stable and permanent employment. This book explores graduates' experiences in developing and utilizing employability capitals for career development and success in different labour markets. In the chapters, the graduate contributors narrate and discuss how they negotiated their employability on the transitions across jobs, occupational sectors and labour markets. The chapters address key issues, including how employability is understood by graduates of different disciplines, at different career stages and in different contexts; how they develop and utilise such capitals along with strategies to negotiate their employability; and what can be done to move the higher education employability agenda forward. The book presents international insights and perspectives into transitions from education to work and career development across the labour markets, as well as calls for improving the graduate employability agenda. It is an invaluable resource for researchers and academics, university leaders, policymakers and students who are concerned about graduate employability.

The School Curriculum
Originally published in 1971. All education systems tend to be traditional and conservative. In times of rapid social change, the work of the schools becomes increasingly outdated by events. Continuous adaptation of the curriculum (which includes content, method and organization) can no longer be left to haphazard, piecemeal innovations-it must be managed. In a comparative study of the strategies adopted to date in the U.S.A., England, Scotland and France, this book points out that-although considerable reforms have been effected in these countries during the past ten to fifteen years-no adequate curriculum theory has yet been developed. The author also turns his attention to the phenomenon which he considered symptomatic of inherent failures in the education system: the drop-outs and hippies He concludes that notions about 'learning' must be revised and rather than a place in which formal instruction is given, the school of the future should be conceived as a resources-for-learning centre.

The Preparation for Life Curriculum
Originally published in 1984. Many schools are faced with the problem of what to teach the large numbers of below average pupils who are never likely to pass any GCE or CSE examination. These pupils are often troublesome, bored and eager to get out of school into the real world of work. At this time, many schools were planning a new curriculum for these pupils - taking account of limited abilities and concentrating on teaching skills and knowledge which will be useful when they have left school. This book, based on extensive original research, considers this problem and puts forward suggestions for how the curriculum might be reformed to cater for these pupils. It discusses both what the content of the reformed curriculum might be and how the process might be implemented to involve those teachers who teach the pupils concerned.
