Teachers' questions play a critical role, not just for the thinking they provoke, but in the modelling of questioning skills and the development of curiosity. Research shows that when teachers think more about questioning - deepening their understanding, extending their range of strategies and planning their questions - responses from pupils improve, and engagement and learning increase. This Pocketbook separates out the three elements of questioning: framing them; delivering them; and responding to the answers. It offers both simple tweaks and fundamental shifts to turn instinctive practice into a highly effective teaching and learning tool. Author and 'question master' Gorden Pope finds a happy balance between theory and evidence-based practice, ending with a short checklist for monitoring and improving your own questioning. "This is a really great little book - engaging, practical, useful and forward-looking. I will be recommending it to the teachers at my school." Jan Shapiro, Deputy Headteacher, Prendergast Ladywell Fields College. "The perfect mix of theory and strategy. After only a few pages I found myself reflecting on my own practice and trying out new ideas. It's become my 'go to' book for engaging passive learners." Jenna Barnes, AST. Head of the Globe Faculty, Conisborough College. "A brilliant resource which will help you to reflect and then enrich your teaching." J Matthews, Headteacher, William Martin Junior School.

There is no single best approach in teaching. This new text challenges the idea that there is a 'best way' to teach. Instead, the authors explain, a more pragmatic approach is required. Teachers need a range of skills and strategies to select from, work with and adapt. Every school, cohort, class and child is different. Beyond that, strategies that worked well with a class last week, may prove ineffective the next. This book: · presents a range of strategies, well grounded in research, for trainees and beginning teachers to use in their own classroom settings and contexts · presents a model of teaching that views teaching not as a profession in which there is always a single correct answer, but as a complex interaction between teacher and students · addresses common issues that beginning teachers face when developing their practice If you are a teacher wanting to find out what works best for your class, in your school, right now, this text will show you how to harness the power of small or large scale research to help you find the answer.

What if teachers could dramatically reduce the amount of time they spend reviewing and correcting student work and actually see better results in terms of student learning? That’s the goal of Glen Pearsall, who shares dozens of classroom-tested strategies that lessen teachers’ workload while increasing students’ class participation and improving their understanding. Readers will learn how to • Refine their classroom questioning techniques to continually check students’ progress and provide instant feedback; • Encourage students to internalize learning goals so they better understand what is expected of them; • Use fast, formative assessment strategies to check and correct during class time; • Modify traditional summative-testing strategies to monitor student progress in a formative way; • Speed up the correction process via student self-proofing, representative sampling, and helpful technology tools; and • Engage students in becoming actively involved in assessing their own work. Drawing from his own experience as a teacher and coach, Pearsall offers practical, real-world advice in the form of techniques that are both effective and sustainable in the everyday classroom. The result is smarter assessment—for both teachers and students.

Early intervention in a dispute, before the disagreement escalates, is often the most effective form of mediation. Consequently, the line manager or supervisor responsible for those individuals at loggerheads is frequently the best person to spot a growing problem and then to intervene. The Mediation Pocketbook will help such managers to understand what creates and sustains conflict and describes a step-by-step approach for dealing with it. The book sets out the skills that are required and what tools and techniques are available and how they can be deployed to achieve positive outcomes. The ideas and methods featured will also be helpful to HR specialists and those people with training in the subject, for when a problem demands formal mediation procedures. Individuals facing conflict and the need to persuade others to see their point of view will also benefit from the practical advice. Conflict in the workplace causes dissatisfaction and demotivation which in turn leads to greater absenteeism and affects performance. Resolving disputes constructively, rather than simply persuading people to 'agree to differ', will impact positively throughout the organisation.

Research consistently shows that teacher effectiveness is about engagement, interaction, questioning, positive atmosphere, high expectations and suitable challenge. At the heart of all these areas is the ability to communicate effectively. How you do that minute by minute and second by second is fundamental to what children learn and remember and to how they behave. Richard Churches draws from a range of disciplines, such as psychology, NLP and neuroscience, to provide a practical compendium of communication expertise based on what highly effective teachers do. You'll find out how to use influential language patterns to support learning and positive behaviour; the secrets of body language and non-verbal communication; how to communicate to create the right emotional climate; effective questioning techniques; etc. Small changes to your current practice could lead to huge benefits in the classroom.

It's every new teacher's first concern and it's an area about which even the most experienced teachers are never complacent - how to control their classes. This new edition of the Teachers Pocketbooks top-selling title is a practical, authoritative guide to creating calm classes and focused, co-operative students. The book starts from the premise that teachers cannot control the behaviour of children; instead they must seek to influence it. Teachers are most effective in managing behaviour when they focus on antecedents and consequences. This means building relationships and using preventative strategies followed by consistent use of logical consequences. The book covers different styles of behaviour management; getting the basics right; eight core principles and a ten-step discipline plan. A section entitled developing the toolkit offers a broad range of strategies for teachers to use. All are explained in practical, classroom terms with examples of phrases to use for maximum effectiveness. Underpinning the repertoire of techniques is a strong framework: the 4Rs rights, responsibilities, rules and routines. Liberal use of cartoons, diagrams, mnemonics and other visual devices reinforce the message and fast-track understanding. "An invaluable guide for all adults who work with children. This book will change the way you think and act in the classroom and should be compulsory reading." Tim Plumb, Head Teacher, Woolwich Polytechnic School "A fantastic read. Buy copies for your staff this year - they'll become more effective by using the approaches outlined in this book." Sarah Skinner, Head, Claydon High School "Provides realistic and effective strategies to empower all teachers to create and establish a positive learning environment for all. I recommend it."

The Project Management Pocketbook is a practical, step-by-step guide to managing a project through to completion. It looks at each key stage and identifies the management techniques that can be applied. From objective-setting through to implementation, the book stresses the importance of good communication, teamworking and influencing skills. All too often, books on this subject cover the process of project management and not the people aspects. This Pocketbook addresses both. "Project management requires a multitude of skills - from vision and planning, to monitoring, communication, leadership and, of course, delivery. This pocketbook pulls together best practice from these diverse areas into one simple, easy-to-read booklet. Refreshingly, it has been written from a general business perspective (rather than I.T.), and is therefore applicable to anyone managing change."Adrian Guttridge, Vice President UK & Ireland, EDS "A lively guide based on real events that any of us may encounter in our everyday life at work or (as I found out after reading this) at home."Johann de Waal, Director, International SOS Insurance Services Ltd

»Ich bin einer von ungezählten Millionen, die durch Nelson Mandelas Leben inspiriert wurden.« Barack Obama Eine fast drei Jahrzehnte währende Gefängnishaft ließ Nelson Mandela zum Mythos der schwarzen Befreiungsbewegung werden. Kaum ein anderer Politiker unserer Zeit symbolisiert heute in solchem Maße die Friedenshoffnungen der Menschheit und den Gedanken der Aussöhnung aller Rassen wie der ehemalige südafrikanische Präsident und Friedensnobelpreisträger. Auch nach seinem Tod finden seine ungebrochene Charakterstärke und Menschenfreundlichkeit die Bewunderung aller friedenswilligen Menschen auf der Welt. Mandelas Lebensgeschichte ist über die politische Bedeutung hinaus ein spannend zu lesendes, kenntnis- und faktenreiches Dokument menschlicher Entwicklung unter Bedingungen und Fährnissen, vor denen die meisten Menschen innerlich wie äußerlich kapituliert haben dürften.
