Directly linked with overall student achievement, graduation rates, and success in higher education, literacy is essential for reaching academic goals in a school or county. Adolescent literacy has become the focus of many school improvement efforts to meet the needs of secondary and high school students. Without the requisite expertise in literacy, administrators and other school leaders charged with literacy improvement initiatives need a systemic and sustained approach for improving student literacy and learning. Taking the Lead on Adolescent Literacy presents a concrete, user-friendly, and practical guide to developing, implementing, and monitoring a schoolwide or county-wide literacy action plan. Readers will find rubrics, tools, and processes developed and field-tested by the authors over more than 10 years of close work with schools across the country.

What is the most effective way of managing pupils' behaviour? The effective management of pupils' behaviour has long been a principle concern, not only for classroom teachers, but for all involved with the management of schools. Finding ways of motivating students, preventing disruption, whilst developing positive relationships, can be difficult to implement. Roland Chaplain argues that a multilevel approach is the key to coping with the diverse pressures of teaching and managing behaviour. This approach recognises the importance of management on individual as well as whole school levels, and not just in terms of teacher-student relationships. This well-organised and thoroughly researched book handles a variety of crucial issues with clarity and vision. A range of topics are discussed in detail, including: * teachers' personal development * whole-school level management and effective strategies to anticipate and eliminate minor disruption * classroom-level management which sets out effective routines designed to promote learning and minimise disruption * individual assessment and intervention with students who have emotional or behavioural problems. The book is enhanced throughout with evidence from contemporary research carried out by teachers and young people, which is used to support the advice and guidance offered. Each chapter includes thought-provoking activities and questions which encourage the reader to evaluate and reflect on their own practice. Teachers, student teachers, and headteachers will find this an indispensable guide.

The training materials in this book give examples of how to put the research into practice, which in turn makes the text more useful for self-development, trainers in schools and university education departments. Moreover, these materials are supported with case studies showing how they have been used successfully in schools throughout the UK.

Written to coincide with the introduction of Induction Standards for new entrants to the teaching profession, this text aims to help to smooth the transition from theory and supervised teaching to independent reflexive practice. It provides a combination of explanation, challenge, practical activities and authentic case studies. The author acknowledges the importance of professional development during the induction year and advocates the gradual implementation and reinforcement of effective strategies for good teaching. He also urges readers to develop the creative, intuitive and "natural-born" abilities that help to fashion their own individual teaching styles. Though informed by the Induction Standards, the aim of the book is to help teachers set ambitious personal and professional expectations through which they will realize their full potential.
