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.

Are you an inchworm or a grasshopper? These are the descriptive terms applied by Professor Steve Chinn and colleagues to two distinct maths learning styles. While grasshoppers get the bigger picture and have a real facility with number, inchworms understand a great deal less. They follow mathematical procedures mechanically without understanding number and without the capacity to be flexible, creative or to check their work. Not all inchworms are dyscalculic, but all dyscalculics are inchworms. In the Dyscalculia Pocketbook you will find out exactly what dyscalculia is (and why it’s not the same as maths anxiety); discover the possible causes of dyscalculia, its different subtypes and the learning difficulties it gives rise to; learn about different ways to identify dyscalculia and - importantly - find support strategies for supporting children who have this specific learning difficulty. Author Judy Hornigold nicely balances research, theory and practice. She reminds us about the three components of a mathematical idea and the six levels of knowledge but the Pocketbook is full of classroom examples and applications, recommended resources ( and how to use them), teaching ideas, tips, and games that will support and develop the maths ability of dyscalculic learners

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.

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.

People with fixed mindsets believe that fundamental qualities like intelligence are essentially stable; people with growth mindsets believe that such qualities can be developed and nurtured. Research shows that learners with growth mindsets are more: open to challenges and constructively critical feedback; resilient in the face of obstacles and failure; convinced that effort makes a difference; able to learn well with and from others; likely to succeed. If we can foster growth mindsets in our pupils the results will be transformative. The Growth Mindset Pocketbook is full of classroom strategies for doing just that. Barry Hymer and Mike Gershon look at high-challenge tasks and the value of errors, mistakes and failure; exactly what we mean by effort and how to make that attractive to students; great feedback; the power of language; and 'going seriously meta' – equipping students to think about their own thinking and learn about their own learning.

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.
