Improving classroom behaviour : new directions for teachers and pupils by Denis Mongon( Book )

9 editions published between 1989 and 1991 in English and held by 444 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is mainly about children whose behavior causes distress and difficulties for teachers in elementary and secondary schools. The authors provide some ideas about how to improve the ability of teachers and pupils to work together constructively, and point out some of the pitfalls on the way. A substantial part of the book is constructed around the authors' collective experience of working in a variety of capacities in primary, secondary, mainstream, and special provision education. Case studies illustrate theories put into practice in the classroom so that the reader can participate in assessing the successes and shortcomings and in judging what lessons or conclusions of general relevance might be learned.

Learning without limits by Mandy Swann( Book )

17 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The style and language used by the authors make the book readable and therefore a book that practising teachers can actively use as a guide to improve their practice ... it is amply demonstrated that teaching can and should be an activity whose primary focus is to enhance students' learning capacity and not limit it."--"Journal of Inservice Education." Why do some teachers insist on teaching without recourse to judgements about ability? What are the key principles on which they draw as they organize and provide for learning? What is the significance of their alternative approach for classrooms in the 21st century? This book explores ways of teaching that are free from determinist beliefs about ability. In a detailed critique of the practices of ability labelling and ability-focussed teaching, "Learning without Limits" examines the damage these practices can do to young people, teachers and the curriculum. Drawing on a research project at the University of Cambridge, the book features nine vivid case studies (from Year 1 to Year 11) that describe how teachers have developed alternative practices despite considerable pressure on them and on their schools and classrooms.; The authors analyze these case studies and identify the key concept of transformability as a distinguishing feature of these teachers' approach. They construct a model of pedagogy based on transformability: the mind-set that children's futures as learners are not pre-determined, and that teachers can help to strengthen and ultimately transform young people's capacity to learn through the choices they make. The book shows how transformability-based teaching can play a central role in constructing an alternative improvement agenda. This book will inspire teachers, student teachers, lecturers and policy makers, as well as everyone who has a stake in how contemporary education and practice affect children's future lives and life chances

Beyond special needs : enhancing children's learning through innovative thinking by Susan Hart( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book offers practitioners a new way of thinking about and pursuing concerns about children's learning. The author sets aside the limiting language of 'learning difficulties' and 'special needs', and suggests an approach which starts from a different perspective. This approach assumes that any learning situation has the potential to yield new ideas for enhancing children's learning, if we do the kinds of thinking that open up new possibilities. The author offers an account of this innovative thinking, suggesting a framework of questions which teachers can use, drawing on their existing knowledge, to generate new insights and possibilities for practice. She also provides a basis for deciding which possibilities to pursue in the case of a particular child. The author explains this approach in a practical way for classroom teachers
