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." Teresa Copeland, Assistant Principal, Strood Academy

Schools that have adopted the ancient principles of restorative justice in their approach to behaviour management report better relationships with young people, greater engagement in learning and a greater development of social and emotional competence among learners. No surprise, then, that interest in restorative practices is growing. It's all about relationships. Wrongdoing is viewed through a 'relational lens'. All those responsible for and affected by the behaviour are involved in solving the problem. Working in conference with a teacher/facilitator, participants come to understand the harm done to people and relationships. Accepting that such harm creates obligations and liabilities, they then focus on repairing the damage and putting things right. Expert practitioners Margaret and David provide a thorough grounding in restorative practice, with worked examples and easy-to-follow teacher scripts to get you started. If RJ is new to you, you'll be a convert in no time! 'Concise, comprehensive and accessible, this book is an essential companion for any school beginning its restorative journey and an aide-memoire for those already embarked.' Mick Levens, Deputy Head, Forest Hill School 'I welcome this pocketbook as a practical and clear guide for school staff on using the spectrum of restorative practices with pupils.' Graham Robb, Education Consultant and Youth Justice Board member 'If you're searching for the 'something' in the 'something must done' be mantra, you should read this book. It de-mystifies the use of restorative approaches in schools, clearly and simply outlining theory and practice, as well as offering a persuasive case for change. Its straightforward, informative style and common-sense, step-by-step approach make it essential and enjoyable reading for both new and experienced practitioners.' Si?n Williams, Behaviour Inclusion Co-ordinator, London Borough of Lewisham

In England 'outstanding' is the term Ofsted uses to describe the very best lessons. Teaching outstanding lessons is an aspiration all teachers share, not least because of the buzz they get from knowing that they have made a significant impact on their students. In highly successful lessons students are better motivated, engaged and interested. They make excellent progress and their attainment levels improve. This cartoon-illustrated Pocketbook, written in clear, concise language for maximum impact, is about how to teach 'stunning lessons that will make an impression on your pupils and knock the socks off your observers'. It begins by scotching some of the myths about what inspectors expect to see in a top-notch lesson, focusing instead on the reality. Areas covered encompass: developing good relationships with pupils and seeking student feedback; planning great lessons, including objectives, starters, activities and review; six steps to pupil independence; the use of praise and aspects of AfL to harness 'the X factor'; effective use of resources; expanding your repertoire of teaching techniques; communication skills; how to motivate students; using plenaries, group work, thinking skills and behaviour management techniques. The final chapter includes a helpful self-audit and offers advice on where to seek inspiration and on what reviewers are looking for in lesson observations. Author Caroline Bentley-Davies has been a middle leader in three schools, a Local Authority Education Adviser and an educational consultant in the UK and overseas. She has run demonstration lessons in over 80 schools and conducts training sessions for teachers across a range of subject areas. "A wonderfully refreshing read! Makes delivering outstanding learning for students of all ages accessible and possible for every teacher." Vanessa Lea, Assistant Head (Teaching and Learning), The Elizabeth Woodville School "Caroline presents a wealth of relevant and motivating tips to raise the quality of teaching . This book will be a source of inspiration and reassurance for teachers at any st

All children are challenging to some extent, but some are more challenging than others. Students with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties (SEBD) can be tough to support and teach. This pocketbook helps you to do just that. It focuses on three particular behaviour disorders: ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), CD (Conduct Disorder) and ODD (Oppositional Defiant Disorder). Fintan O'Regan, an internationally renowned expert on ADHD, explains why some children are prone to developing a can't learn, won't learn or don't care attitude. He devotes individual chapters to each behaviour pattern and uses Vicki, Liam and Darren to illustrate typical characteristics. Practical classroom strategies include lesson scenarios, with example dialogues showing how different teacher responses can lead to different outcomes. Whether you're looking for explanations, tips, ideas, or strategies (or maybe just reassurance and support) this book fits the bill.

Explosive, uncontrolled anger is both frightening and damaging. Whether it's verbal abuse, physical intimidation, violence, aggression, or a combination of these, trying to manage very angry pupils is tough. It’s energy-sapping and can leave us feeling frustrated, powerless and, sometimes, inept and weak. This Pocketbook is highly practical in demonstrating how to cope when tempers fly in the classroom, the corridor, the playground or, indeed, the staffroom. Find out about the anger cycle; how to recognise early warning signs and intervene to prevent an eruption; how to handle angry explosions/conflict situations; how to repair relationships following an outburst; how to teach children to manage difficult emotions and how to maintain your sanity. Paul Blum pulls no punches, taking us into fighting, steaming and ‘happy slap’ territory. However, you’re in the hands of an expert who really does give you a survival toolkit.

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.

Models that explain what happened, that predict what will happen and that reveal how to get results are described in The Management Models Pocketbook - a practical resource for trainers, coaches and facilitators, and a ready-reference for managers. The range of models described, 10 in total, includes John Adair’s action centred leadership model, Bruce Tuckman’s team development and behaviour model, Eric Berne’s parent-adult-child theory of transactional analysis and John Boyd’s OODA decision-making model. There are models too covering delegation, motivation and communications.

A diagrammatic view of each model and references to related models add to the practical approach. According to the 5-star review on Amazon: 'This is a brilliant book. The author has clearly and simply explained the models and how they apply to everyday business. A must for every training professional.'
