Includes CD-Rom `This resource was a very valuable tool in helping us to incorporate SEAL lessons into the PSHE curriculum for Years 7 and 8 this year...the activities are set within the context of research into social work and emotional aspects of learning conducted by the author, and, in practice, they work with the students! Feedback from our 7 and 8 students on these lessons was overwhelmingly positive' - Jenny Tinnelly, Henry Floyd Grammar School Are you looking for a quality programme to help promote emotional literacy in your school? School Effectiveness provides a complete activity and resource pack for implementing emotional literacy within your school. Filled with strategies, activities, resources, games, lessons and materials, the pack includes: - A guidebook for teachers, clearly explaining the theory behind emotional literacy and providing practical ideas for the classroom - A CD Rom containing a colour student workbook, designed to involve every student in the development of emotional literacy - Lesson notes, games and copiable activity sheets for classroom use, also available on the CD Rom - A second CD Rom containing the easy-to-install TalkiT software programme, which can be used as a powerful classroom assessment tool to measure and evaluate personal and social development. The CD Rom allows over 30 free trials and uses clear and simple operating instructions throughout. Success at school is more than academic achievement. Personal and social development is just as important. To create this pack, Marilyn Tew led a fascinating project in British secondary schools to uncover how young people felt about school life, showing that, for most, it was personal and social success that was of primary importance. This valuable resource pack takes the findings of Marilyn's research and builds them into exciting practical applications to help students develop self-awareness, self control, motivation and the understanding to get along with others. The additional TalkiT software makes it an essential, all-in-one resource for every school. Marilyn Tew is a visiting fellow of the Graduate School of Education at the University of Bristol. She is experienced in secondary education as a teacher and manager. In addition, she has been a researcher and national trainer in PSHE, groupwork, Circle Time and emotional literacy for the past nine years. Her special interest is groups, particularly the circle, emotional literacy and work with the community to support learning.

Debating is out of fashion. No one raises the question of what has gone wrong when the entire political project of a society is seemingly reduced to 'education, education, education'. The aim of this lively and challenging book is to provide the stimulus for further thinking about key educational issues by exposing and explaining the assumptions behind this obsession. Over forty contributors, all experts in their fields, have written short, accessible, informed and lively articles for students, teachers and others involved in education. They address broad questions that are central to any understanding of what is really going on in the education system. Topics covered include: the new relationship of the state to education; the changed nature of schools; whether teachers are afraid to teach; the problems with circle time, anti-bullying strategies, citizenship education, and multiple intelligences; the retreat from truth and the demise of theory in teacher training, and much more. Everyone learning to teach in primary and secondary schools and further education colleges will find this book relevant to their programmes. In particular the book would be useful for students on Education Studies courses.
