Dyscalculia Pocketbook

by Judy Hornigold, Dyscalculia Pocketbook Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Dyscalculia Pocketbook books, Are you an inchworm or a grasshopper? These are the descriptive terms applied by Professor Steve Chinn and colleagues to two distinct maths learning styles. While grasshoppers get the bigger picture and have a real facility with number, inchworms understand a great deal less. They follow mathematical procedures mechanically without understanding number and without the capacity to be flexible, creative or to check their work. Not all inchworms are dyscalculic, but all dyscalculics are inchworms. In the Dyscalculia Pocketbook you will find out exactly what dyscalculia is (and why it’s not the same as maths anxiety); discover the possible causes of dyscalculia, its different subtypes and the learning difficulties it gives rise to; learn about different ways to identify dyscalculia and - importantly - find support strategies for supporting children who have this specific learning difficulty. Author Judy Hornigold nicely balances research, theory and practice. She reminds us about the three components of a mathematical idea and the six levels of knowledge but the Pocketbook is full of classroom examples and applications, recommended resources ( and how to use them), teaching ideas, tips, and games that will support and develop the maths ability of dyscalculic learners

Challenging Behaviours Pocketbook

by Fintan O'Regan, Challenging Behaviours Pocketbook Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Challenging Behaviours Pocketbook books, All children are challenging to some extent, but some are more challenging than others. Students with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties (SEBD) can be tough to support and teach. This pocketbook helps you to do just that. It focuses on three particular behaviour disorders: ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), CD (Conduct Disorder) and ODD (Oppositional Defiant Disorder). Fintan O'Regan, an internationally renowned expert on ADHD, explains why some children are prone to developing a can't learn, won't learn or don't care attitude. He devotes individual chapters to each behaviour pattern and uses Vicki, Liam and Darren to illustrate typical characteristics. Practical classroom strategies include lesson scenarios, with example dialogues showing how different teacher responses can lead to different outcomes. Whether you're looking for explanations, tips, ideas, or strategies (or maybe just reassurance and support) this book fits the bill.

Differentiation Pocketbook

by Peter Anstee, Differentiation Pocketbook Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Differentiation Pocketbook books, A glance at the history books or the pages of a Dickens novel reminds us how far education has come since the days when pupils sat silently in rows memorising knowledge imparted by the teacher. Learning was passive, and only gender and social class affected provision. In today's schools learning is at the centre of what we do and differentiation - the process of modifying a lesson or part of a lesson for one or some of the learners - is a fundamental part of teaching. Turning theory into practice and including 20 key types of differentiation, this Pocketbook is about planning and teaching creative, student-focused lessons where every learner is appropriately challenged and where engaged, stimulated and motivated students work in a state of 'flow'. In this kind of environment true differentiation serves not to label but to enable. "Peter Anstee's book is simple but not simplistic. It is not an idiot's guide' but rather it reminds the initiate and the seasoned pedagogue of the fundamental importance of differentiation to effective teaching and learning. Its informed and (mercifully) succinct overview of the theory and manifold practical strategies provide an ideal companion for the busy professional." Pete Fishleigh, Faculty Leader - English, Brentwood County High School "This gem of a book doesn't disguise the challenge differentiation presents, but it is packed full of practical techniques which are easily incorporated into any lesson. It inspires, informs and gives the reader the confidence to improve their practice. A must-have for teaching today." Alice Edge, 2nd in MFL, Responsible for Community Languages - Valentines High School "This Pocketbook provides all the tips necessary to an outstanding teacher since all the key strategies which help students to learn more effectively are included. The theories are easy to understand because they are clearly linked to classroom practice, and experimentation seems possible." Debbie Kirk, English Consultant, School Improvement and Early Years - Essex LA

Behaviour Management Pocketbook

by Peter Hook, Behaviour Management Pocketbook Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Behaviour Management Pocketbook books, 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."

Restorative Justice Pocketbook

by Margaret Thorsborne, Restorative Justice Pocketbook Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Restorative Justice Pocketbook books, Schools that have adopted the ancient principles of restorative justice in their approach to behaviour management report better relationships with young people, greater engagement in learning and a greater development of social and emotional competence among learners. No surprise, then, that interest in restorative practices is growing. It's all about relationships. Wrongdoing is viewed through a 'relational lens'. All those responsible for and affected by the behaviour are involved in solving the problem. Working in conference with a teacher/facilitator, participants come to understand the harm done to people and relationships. Accepting that such harm creates obligations and liabilities, they then focus on repairing the damage and putting things right. Expert practitioners Margaret and David provide a thorough grounding in restorative practice, with worked examples and easy-to-follow teacher scripts to get you started. If RJ is new to you, you'll be a convert in no time! 'Concise, comprehensive and accessible, this book is an essential companion for any school beginning its restorative journey and an aide-memoire for those already embarked.' Mick Levens, Deputy Head, Forest Hill School 'I welcome this pocketbook as a practical and clear guide for school staff on using the spectrum of restorative practices with pupils.' Graham Robb, Education Consultant and Youth Justice Board member 'If you're searching for the 'something' in the 'something must done' be mantra, you should read this book. It de-mystifies the use of restorative approaches in schools, clearly and simply outlining theory and practice, as well as offering a persuasive case for change. Its straightforward, informative style and common-sense, step-by-step approach make it essential and enjoyable reading for both new and experienced practitioners.'

Outstanding Lessons Pocketbook

by Caroline Bentley-Davies, Outstanding Lessons Pocketbook Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Outstanding Lessons Pocketbook books, In England 'outstanding' is the term Ofsted uses to describe the very best lessons. Teaching outstanding lessons is an aspiration all teachers share, not least because of the buzz they get from knowing that they have made a significant impact on their students. In highly successful lessons students are better motivated, engaged and interested. They make excellent progress and their attainment levels improve. This cartoon-illustrated Pocketbook, written in clear, concise language for maximum impact, is about how to teach 'stunning lessons that will make an impression on your pupils and knock the socks off your observers'. It begins by scotching some of the myths about what inspectors expect to see in a top-notch lesson, focusing instead on the reality. Areas covered encompass: developing good relationships with pupils and seeking student feedback; planning great lessons, including objectives, starters, activities and review; six steps to pupil independence; the use of praise and aspects of AfL to harness 'the X factor'; effective use of resources; expanding your repertoire of teaching techniques; communication skills; how to motivate students; using plenaries, group work, thinking skills and behaviour management techniques. The final chapter includes a helpful self-audit and offers advice on where to seek inspiration and on what reviewers are looking for in lesson observations. Author Caroline Bentley-Davies has been a middle leader in three schools, a Local Authority Education Adviser and an educational consultant in the UK and overseas. She has run demonstration lessons in over 80 schools and conducts training sessions for teachers across a range of subject areas. "A wonderfully refreshing read! Makes delivering outstanding learning for students of all ages accessible and possible for every teacher." Vanessa Lea, Assistant Head (Teaching and Learning), The Elizabeth Woodville School "Caroline presents a wealth of relevant and motivating tips to raise the quality of teaching .
