Includes CD-Rom There are many 'Do-it-Yourself' manuals for students and young people experiencing study skills problems. However, if this group of young people could study these books then they would already have the skills necessary! In order to use a self help manual the student needs internal motivation, the ability to self-instruct from text and the ability to put the learned strategy into place... but these are the same attributes that these students find difficult. In this book, Pat Guy provides a series of lesson plans making up a taught study skills course for secondary schools, sixth forms, FE colleges and Pupil Referral Units. She shows the reader how to teach, through self assessment, practice and confidence-building techniques, the techniques and self management required to achieve independent study skills. All the activities and worksheets, including revision and exam tips for the students, are easily printable from the accompanying CD-rom. The sessions can be delivered by teachers, tutors, Learning Mentors, or anyone whose aim is to improve attendance and achievement in older students. Pat Guy has taught for over twenty years in LEA and secondary schools in Outer London, Northamptonshire, Birmingham and Bedfordshire as a class teacher, subject teacher, SEN support, SENCO and advisory teacher.

Includes CD-Rom Originally developed for deaf children, this innovative and successful drama programme addressing personal, social and emotional needs can benefit all children in primary schools. The interactive and lively ideas cover a variety of themes from empathy to assertiveness. Each of the 6 modules in the book provides 3-5 session plans which include games, drama exercises and discussion that build up the children's exploration of each theme. Copiable resources are included, and a 'How to Use' section has practical suggestions on how the material may be used and adapted for different children and varying situations. An evaluation sheet is also provided which can be used to track the progress of individual children. A final appendix contains a compendium of games which can be interchanged to suit the needs of the children. Bringing together the expertise of a drama teacher and the skills of a teacher of the deaf, the book is a very practical resource providing everything a busy teacher needs to engage all young people as participants in a PSHE curriculum. Angie Wootten has been a teacher of deaf children for over twenty years. She is also a regional tutor and a placement supervisor for the course leading to the qualification as a teacher of the deaf at Birmingham University. In 1999, as a research fellow with the same university, she researched and co-wrote the RNID publication A Review of Good Practice in Deaf Education. In 2002 she completed an MPhil relating to oral communication and deaf adults. Angie has worked with deaf children of all ages, from babies to college students. She is currently working as an outreach teacher in Warwickshire. Jacqui is an actress and Deputy Director of Education for the Royal Shakespeare Company.

Includes CD-Rom Pupils are rarely taught the principles of effective co-operation although being able to work effectively as part of a group is critical in all contexts; school, life and work. The book is based on the author's practical experience of running the programme in schools and is underpinned by research into the development of pro-social behaviour and friendship skills. The 26 sessions are arranged in the sequence of the alphabet from Attitude to the Zest for life. In each session there is a poster and a 'take away' activity as well as full facilitators' notes for whole class introduction, pair and share tasks and a plenary. A unique feature of the programme is that it addresses the development of non-verbal communication, the ability to read social cues. The sessions raise awareness and understanding of the interpersonal skills necessary for friendships, including communication and co-operation. The teaching sessions cover topics such as: - Reciprocity - Commitment - Giving and sharing - Trust - Specific thinking skills. The programme is intended for whole class work but would also be suitable for small groups.

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 14-19provides: 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 adopts 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 or college as a self-evaluating organisation which listens to the voice of the young person. The programme also supports teachers and other school staff in developing as reflective practitioners, and children and young people in developing as reflective learners. '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

Most schools are safe places for children but that does not mean that members of a school community live and learn together in harmony at all time. Violence towards children can take place in a variety of forms, including physical and verbal abuse and bullying. This is a practical handbook for schools to use when training staff in techniques for reducing violence. In particular, it addresses two issues: how to establish and maintain a learning environment where violence is not tolerated and how to respond to violence when it occurs so that this environment is protected. Each chapter covers a critical area for school policy, describes the issues, and proposes activities designed to be combined into a training programme to meet the specific needs of a group of staff. This includes teachers and the growing number of support staff in European schools. School leaders, administrators and educationalists should find this guide a useful addition to the resources for reducing violence in schools available in their own country.

It would also be of use to saff who are currently operating a peer support scheme. I personally will use this book and keep a copy in the counselling service library, recommending it to counsellors/trainers and teachers interested or already facilitating peer support in their schools' - British Journal of Guidance and Counselling `It is to read, comprehensive in its structure and advice and through examples of first-hand experiences, makes the reader feel enthusiastic about trying out different ideas.... An excellent handbook for the manager of a peer support system for any organization' - Anne Woodhouse, Clinical Child Psychology and Psychiatry Peer support systems are increasingly being used in schools and other youth settings to tackle problems such as bullying, rejection, social exclusion, sexual identity, self-esteem and loneliness. Peer Support in Action is a practical guide which gives adults who work with children and young people the knowledge, understanding and practical tools to provide effective and appropriate systems of peer support. Helen Cowie and Patti Wallace combine insights drawn from practice with up-to-date research findings, to give a sound basis for peer-based interventions. They encourage readers to build on the potential for offering help which many young people have and give practical guidance on how to train, guide and supervise them in supporting their peers. Peer Support in Action is for teachers, educational psychologists, social workers, education welfare officers, counsellors and counselling psychologists and all professionals involved in the pastoral care and guidance of children and young people.
