Coaching Emotional Intelligence in the Classroom is a practical resource to help Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3 teachers explore and understand a range of concepts, principles and techniques gathered under the term ‘emotional intelligence’, and the way that this powerfully influences pupils’ behaviour and learning in the classroom. Creative activities are suggested throughout, leading towards a more explicit focus on coaching methods to help pupils become independent, creative and effective learners able to set goals, generate ideas, solve problems and arrive at reasoned decisions. This book focuses on five key areas: self-awareness innovative and inventive thinking independent enquiry collaborative learning communication skills. Dealing in an engaging way with social and emotional aspects of learning, personalised learning, thinking skills and social inclusion, the authors offer teachers all of the necessary tools to help pupils build life- and people-skills which will extend beyond school. It will be of interest to all practising teachers, teaching assistants and school counsellors working with young people.

"This book gives students an excellent introduction to expectations of assessments at undergraduate level. It is written by an experienced law tutor who knows not only what a good law essay is but also has a good grasp on what it is that students both want and need to know." "--"Nick Taylor, Senior Lecturer at the University of Leeds " " The text provides a useful step by step guide, not only on how students should be doing things, but why they should be doing things. As such it is a useful tool in demystifying legal education, and in bridging the gap between staff and student expectation.

How can I become an effective teacher in college or university? What teaching tools and techniques are available to me and what is the best way to use them? How do I tackle common difficulties associated with college and university teaching? This book is designed for teachers in further and higher education, particularly those who do not have specialist backgrounds in education, pedagogy or academic practice. It presents useful theory and literature from the fields of organizational behaviour, learning, pedagogy and education, to enhance the practical advice the book contains. A range of evidence-based insights are examined in order to help support the delivery of academic expertise both within and beyond classroom settings. The book also encourages teachers to adopt a reflective orientation and to try out different classroom, interactive or discursive activities and tactics that have been successfully used in similar settings. In addition, this book helps teachers from across the disciplines not only to develop effective skills in conventional classroom settings (lecture halls, tutorial rooms, one-to-one student consultations) but to consider new approaches to online, blended, and distance learning. Teaching at College and University provides the most practical evidence-based resource for those involved in teaching at universities and colleges, as well as researchers and policy makers with an interest in good practice in academic settings.

Representing a brave and insightful shift away from narrow perspectives on behaviour management, this book draws practitioners towards a more holistic understanding of ourselves and how we impact on children’s learning and behaviour. The authors’ brilliant new conceptual model of ‘whole-brain’ behaviour management challenges existing theories about the management of children’s behavioural issues. Their pioneering ‘whole-brain’ approach draws upon a range of influences and concepts that cross discipline boundaries, expanding on the practitioner’s understanding of the complexity of children’s behaviour through their own knowledge of neuroscience, biopsychosocial theory and interpersonal awareness. The book will take the reader through a process of self-evaluation in which their preferred ways of thinking, acting and relating will be explored and interpreted in order to help them understand the impact of their ‘personal style’ on how the children in their care behave. Offering new insights and creative solutions, this is a practical guide to coach practitioners in their personal and professional development, helping them to raise the achievement of children exhibiting even the most challenging of behaviour.
