The book is based on four principles: literacy is important for all learning; we owe it to our pupils to help them develop their literacy; developing strategies for LAC enhances teaching and learning across the school; teachers do not have to be literacy experts to promote LAC. In a series of punchy chapters, (Speaking for Success, Write Better!

Book Description: The drive in schools to ensure that all students reach their potential is fuelled by a wealth of data for tracking progress and revealing which groups and individuals are underachieving. The challenge for teachers is to find strategies that ‘close the gap’, allowing every pupil the best possible chance of success. With characteristic energy, Caroline Bentley-Davies shows how to strengthen learning and engagement, so boosting progress and attainment. After dispelling some commonly held beliefs about raising achievement, Caroline describes a ‘climate for achievement’. Drawing on education research on feedback, metacognition and motivation, she brings theory to life with examples and case studies. Her section on exams and revision cleverly applies the theory of marginal gains and elsewhere she highlights the role of parents and peers and stresses the importance of great CPD. A thought-provoking read that could raise your game and improve student outcomes.

Book Description: Most children develop speech, language and communication skills instinctively, a process that begins at birth and continues into adulthood. However, in most classrooms there are children - as many as 50% in some areas - who have not acquired the fundamental spoken and written skills that underpin all types of social interaction, skills that are essential for success in education and at work. This book shows teachers how to support pupils with SLCN - speech, language and communication needs. Written by a speech and language therapist and a secondary teacher working in mainstream schools, this highly illustrated Pocketbook begins by defining SLCN and placing it against a backdrop of normal language development. The authors identify who has SLCN and explain how weak communication skills lead to academic, social, emotional and behavioural problems. Language is both received and transmitted; both input and output pose problems for pupils with SLCN. A chapter on attention and listening covers hearing impairment, auditory memory, teacher talk and active listening skills. It is followed by sections on receptive language difficulties - understanding concepts and inference, reasoning and deduction - and expressive language difficulties: building sentences and narrative in speech and writing. Speech difficulties such as stammering, phonological difficulties, articulation and voice disorders are also covered. Learning, storing and retrieving vocabulary are given a section of their own as is social communication. The book concludes with ideas for implementing a whole school approach. Cartoons, diagrams and visual prompts support the text throughout.

Book Description: The word 'revision' can strike fear into the heart of teachers and students alike! The exam cycle in today's modern education system can feel relentless, resulting in students suffering from information overload and exam fatigue. But it doesn't have to be like this!

In this brilliant book, John Mitchell offers a diverse range of activities, games, tips and tricks that teachers can use in the classroom to help guide students through this stressful period. By combing theory with strategies tried and tested in the classroom, it will help teachers to create a culture where students are encouraged to review and reinforce their learning. This consistent approach means that revision becomes an everyday process rather that one that is just used in the run up to exams. From adaptations of well-known games, such as Connect Four and Runaround, to brand new activities, there are ideas that are suitable for very learning style and subject. 100 Ideas for Secondary Teachers: Revision will help you to prepare students for exams effectively, alleviate stress, and reintroduce fun into your revision sessions.

Book Description: Teachers are responsible for shaping the connections inside learners' brains on a day-to-day basis, connections that will remain in place for the rest of those learners' lives. Understanding the science of learning in the brain is, therefore, a powerful way to inform teaching and have an impact on learning. Furthermore, research evidence shows that teaching children about how the brain learns can improve their motivation to learn. So, when education writer and former teacher Richard Churches got together with two neuroscientists and a group of teachers they saw an exciting opportunity to pool their expertise and explore how insight from neuroscience could translate into classroom practice. Learning & the Brain Pocketbook is full of accessible information about how the brain works, how it learns, how it memorises and how it develops. At every turn, the material is discussed in relation to the classroom. Numerous tips and strategies draw on the neuroscience to enhance and support what you do with your learners. Learning about the brain is fun - and it makes for great professional development.

Book Description: Britain today is culturally and linguistically diverse. One in eight pupils in primary schools speaks a language other than English; in secondary schools, one in six. Over 200 languages are spoken in London schools. The EAL Pocketbook is for teachers of pupils learning English as an additional language, whether in rural or urban contexts. It provides tips, tools and techniques to ensure that all pupils can thrive in their learning. Author Alice Washbourne is a consultant EAL advisor. Her inclusive approach is modelled on 'the ladder to success' beginning with the learner's skills and strengths, building on these to make learning cognitively challenging, then providing scaffolding to support their move towards independent learning. Useful guidance for both novice and experienced practitioners. 'A bucket-load of good advice and practical ideas in a pocket-size book. These thoughtful insights translate easily into effective classroom practice' Sally Williams, Head of School, Myatt Garden Primary 'This book is full of crystal clear and practical strategies for teachers to use in class. It's easier to follow than not to... The strategies in this book will support teachers, raising not only EAL but all the students' attainment and achievement levels. Thank you Alice' Tuba Bauhofer, EAL Co-ordinator, Prendergast-Ladywell Fields College

Book Description: Coaching skills are fundamentally about the quality of dialogues that happen at all levels of an organisation. Where coaching is part of a school’s ethos, performance improves and attainment is raised. The Coaching in Schools Pocketbook comprises a collection of highly practical skills and strategies that can be used by all educational professionals, regardless of role or status. The book begins by explaining the concept of solutions focused coaching. It describes a number of powerful tools that facilitate conversational shifts, moving people from: resistance to collaboration; anxiety to confidence; what’s wrong to what’s right; complaint to preferred future; limitation to possibility and potential. A key chapter on coaching skills looks at building trust and rapport, asking skilful questions, listening at different levels and offering supportive feedback. A coaching framework, developed and refined by the author over time, is provided. Further chapters cover goal-setting and developing coaching within a school. Illustrative case studies, along with cartoons, diagrams and other visually attractive presentational devices are used throughout to support the text and cement the meaning.

Book Description: Dyscalculia is a specific learning difficulty that affects a person’s mathematical ability. It is estimated that around 6% of the population have dyscalculia, so in a typical classroom there is likely to be at least one dyscalculic learner. Research is ongoing, but we know that dyscalculia is a much deeper-rooted problem than just ‘being bad at maths’. This Pocketbook looks at the difficulties faced by pupils with dyscalculia and explores the support strategies that work. The author begins by summarising and explaining what we currently know about dyscalculia. Key indicators are described, along with various ways of screening and assessing to identify students with this SpLD. There’s a helpful chapter on ‘maths anxiety’ and a central practical section on teaching strategies that will help learners to work around the obstacles dyscalculia presents. Details of the three components of a mathematical idea and the six levels of learning - intuitive, concrete, pictorial, abstract, application and communication - provide good underpinning structure. Games that help develop number sense and the ten most effective classroom approaches are also covered. A final resource section and maths glossary complete the picture. As with all books in the Teachers’ Pocketbooks series, this is a practical, ‘how to’ guide, throughout which cartoons, diagrams and visual prompts support the text.
