Written for the busy classroom teacher, this book provides quick access to an abundance of Circle Time activities. Building on the success of the first edition, this new book retains the original edition's clarity and ease-of-access, whilst providing more than twice as much material. It has also been updated to take account of new legislation, including Every Child Matters and The National Standard for Healthy Schools. Clear headers guide the reader to core games and appropriate themes, each with helpful hints for planning and implementation, and to assist the smooth running of the sessions. The theme section demonstrates ways of using core Circle Time activities such as 'Sentence Completion' and 'Silent Statements' to explore sensitive issues such as friendships and bullying. An important new feature is a structure to help readers understand what they should be expecting from pupils during Circle Time at each key stage. New and expanded sections on group work and the development of Circle Time are also included. This is a valuable resource for teachers, educational psychologists and youth workers, whether they are experienced Circle Time practitioners or new to the technique.

This work suggests strategies for working with children who can't settle down to work, who have angry outbursts, who demand constant attention or who display a whole range of challenging behaviours. The book's special format allows the reader to look up the specific type of behaviour and see a range of tactics to help him or her deal with the situation in the short term, and then to consider what might be done in the longer term to prevent recurrence. No more ploughing through dense text - this is all at your fingertips. By drawing on the good practice of many practioners and by looking at the most commonly experienced behavioural difficulties, the authors suggest approaches that really work. This is a behaviour handbook that should appeal to every teacher and teaching assistant and prove a useful resource for learning mentors, behaviour support staff and educational psychologists.

Outlining in simple terms what self-esteem is and providing strategies to support it in the classroom, this book includes clear explanations of the terminology and theory behind self-esteem, and lots of practical examples and useful activities for use with children. The book also covers the main issues surrounding the self-esteem of practitioners.

Includes CD-Rom For many teachers, gender issues related to role models, image and expectations have an effect upon the behaviour and achievement of both boys and girls, often to their disadvantage. This innovative and practical resource, for teachers of students aged 5-13 provides: o a programme to promote gender equality and inclusivity in schools and colleges o a rationale for the programme based on social justice o a practical set of classroom activities to implement the programme The book combines the talents and commitment of two leading authors to provide an 'action inquiry' methodology - engaging students and staff in the processes of investigating what is currently happening, and planning, implementing and reviewing improvements. This contributes to the development of the school as a self-evaluating organisation, which listens to the voice of the child. The programme supports teachers and other school staff in developing as reflective practitioners, and children and young people in developing as reflective learners. It can also be used to engage schools and colleges in joining the UNICEF 'Rights Respecting' programme which is demonstrating positive results. 'A real strength of the resource is the inclusion of practical activities that have been carefully designed for pupils. These are excellent and lend themselves for use in a variety of ways. This is a thoroughly recommended resource.' - SENCO Update
