Bullying interventions in schools : six basic approaches by Ken Rigby( )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Educational means, for example by educating students about the nature and harmfulness of bullying and promoting pro-social attitudes and the development of social skills that will result in positive interpersonal relations among all students. To this end, appropriate curricula and teaching methods may be designed and applied to help children to interact more cooperatively and to respond more empathically to the distress experienced by others. One important development has been the use of 'circle time' in schools, which enables students to share their experiences and problems at school in a safe and structured classroom environment.Peer support programs may also be devised to enable interested students to help and support students experiencing difficulties with others; for instance by intervening as bystanders when bullying takes place and providing psychological support for those victimised. Sometimes attempts to reduce bullying have been focused on improved classroom management and better engagement with students. With improvements in the school ethos we might expect bullying to become less common. The second approach is to focus especially on the students who have become involved in bully/victim problems at school. The aim here is to stop the bullying from continuing and (sometimes) to help those who bully or have been victimised to lead more constructive or less troubled lives. Rather than direct attention to all the students in a school as occurs in the universal approach, this approach is selective in identifying those students who need specialised attention. A range of methods have been devised for this purpose. These form the main focus in this book and will be examined in detail later. As noted above, these two approaches should be regarded as complementary. If the universal approach is successful, there will

A parent's guide to scholarship tests by Roger Leech( )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Preparing, applying and sitting for a scholarship test can be gruelling and competitive process for the child and the child?s parents, and the disappointment of not being awarded a scholarship can be demoralising and disappointing. The aim of a scholarship test is to identify the very best potential students for an elite school from a pool of outstanding candidates. To be of any use, scholarship tests must find often very small differences in the academic performance of very high achieving students. The unavoidable truth is that many more students sit scholarship tests than there are scholarships available. A Parent?s Guide to Scholarship Tests aims to help parents better understand scholarship tests so that they can help their child do their best when it counts. The book contains: detailed information about the CSTP, PSP, SST and ACEP scholarship tests; advice on preparing for the test; example questions and sample answers with detailed explanations, strategies and approaches; suggestions on helping your child develop the skills and abilities the tests target; advice on how to manage expectations and better understand results; case studies and advice from participating schools.
