  10. Fear Is The Mind Killer: Why Learning to Learn deserves lesson time - and how to make it work for your pupils

    Fear Is The Mind Killer: Why Learning to Learn deserves lesson time - and how to make it work for your pupils

    For the last 15 years, Dr James Mannion and Kate McAllister have been working to design, implement and evaluate the Learning Skills curriculum - a systematic approach to helping students become more confident, practice, self-regulated learners.

    An eight-year evaluation with the University of Cambridge revealed that Learning Skills led to significant gains in subject learning, with rapid gains among students from disadvantaged backgrounds.

    In this practical guide for teachers and school leaders, James and Kate reveal a recipe for success rooted in three key concepts: metacognition (reflecting on learning); self-regulation (taking ownership over the learning process); and oracy (developing high-quality speaking and listening skills).

    This is a book about what happened when a small team of teachers seized an opportunity to provide their students with the knowledge, the skills and the confidence to take control of their own learning. This journey began with a question: how and what would we teach, if there was no one watching? On the other side of fear is the teacher you want to be, and the children you'd like to teach…

    Symbiosis: The Curriculum and The Classroom

    When the teaching profession places the curriculum at the heart of what it does, transformative change can take place. Curriculum reform is now at the forefront of every school agenda; in spite of this, there is a danger that its message may become lost in translation. When curricular change is poorly implemented, teachers experience a complete detachment from their sense of purpose, autonomy, and capacity to become curriculum designers of the future.

    Employing an astute blend of theory and practice, Claire Hill and Kat Howard offer a methodical approach to designing and delivering a curriculum, to ensure that all feel part of a collective curricular journey. At a time when work on the curriculum can be politicised, monetised and overcomplicated, Symbiosis: The Curriculum and the Classroom provides a series of practical strategies for curriculum designers at every level, in order to not only keep and develop the skilled and professional teachers desperately needed in schools, but also to provide a world-class curriculum to students.

  19. Fiorella & Mayer’s Generative Learning in Action

    Fiorella & Mayer’s Generative Learning in Action

    Generative Learning in Action helps to answer the question: which activities can students carry out to create meaningful learning? It does this by considering how we, as teachers, can implement the eight strategies for generative learning set out in the work of Fiorella and Mayer in their seminal 2015 work Learning as a Generative Activity: Eight Learning Strategies that Promote Learning.

    At a time when a great deal of attention has been paid to the teaching and learning from the perspective of effective instruction, Generative Learning looks at the flip side of coin and considers what is happening in the minds of the learner. This book takes a teacher’s-eye view of a range of theories of learning and keeps their application to the classroom firmly in mind through the use of case studies and reference to day-to-day practice.

    Generative Learning in Action also discusses key considerations and potential limitations of each of the strategies, as well as how you could implement these in your own practice and more widely across a school.

    This book is the next in a series that began with Tom Sherrington’s Rosenshine’s Principles in Action (2019).

    Back on Track: Fewer things, greater depth

    There are a lot of redundant processes in schools. We need to take a hard look at these and consider whether they are adding value to the core purpose of schools.

    We need to apply Greg McKeown's 'disciplined pursuit of less' in order to create the time and space to do deep, satisfying work on the curriculum.

    This means that there will be some hard choices and recognise that if we cannot do everything, we need to move to a space which acknowledges there will be trade offs.

    This is more than a workload issue, it is about focusing our efforts on the most important agenda item in schools today - the development of an ambitious curriculum for every child, in every school.

    Good behaviour is the beginning of great learning. All children deserve classrooms that are calm, safe spaces where everyone is treated with dignity.

    Creating that space is one of the most important things a teacher needs to be able to do. But all too often teachers begin their careers with the bare minimum of training - or worse, none.

    How students behave, socially and academically, dictates whether or not they will succeed or struggle in school. Every child comes to the classroom with different skills, habits, values and expectations of what to do. There's no point just telling a child to behave; behaviour must be taught.

    Behaviour is a curriculum. This simple truth is the beginning of creating a classroom culture where everyone flourishes: pupils and staff.

    Running the Room is the teacher's guide to behaviour. Practical, evidence-informed, and based on the expertise of great teachers from around the world, it addresses the things teachers really need to know to build the classrooms children need.

    Bursting with strategies, tips and solid advice, it brings together the best of what we know and saves teachers, new or old, from reinventing the wheels of the classroom. It's the book teachers have been waiting for.

  25. Educating with Purpose: The heart of what matters

    Educating with Purpose: The heart of what matters

    The past decade in education focused on what works. The decade ahead must focus on what matters. In his second book, Stephen Tierney argues that it is time for the purpose of education to move to the centre of the debate.

    Why we educate is a question from which all else evolves. A question for all times, it will resonate deeply with those who have experienced the Great Pause caused by the global pandemic in 2020. And it is a question that we need to answer, because that purpose will determine what schools and the education system as a whole will do next.

    Proposing that the telos of education must be a life well-lived, Tierney argues for a re-purposing of education. He provides the theory of four philosophies of education - personal empowerment, cultural transmission, preparation for work and preparation for citizenship - alongside a powerful critique that challenges the current orthodoxy.

    How principals can design a transformative school experience for students, teachers, parents - and themselves

    How can you transform the school experience for all stakeholders? SchoolX has the answer: design thinking. Jethro Jones teaches principals how to become designers, not just managers or leaders.

    Drawing on the wisdom of the hundreds of leaders he has interviewed for his Transformative Principal podcast and Transformative Leadership Summits, Jones reveals how you can use design thinking to put yourself in the shoes of the people in your school communities, using that empathy to drive radical change.

    Crucially, Jones argues that it is only once leaders improve their own experience that they can transform the experiences of others.

    SchoolX will empower you with an iterative and innovative way to approach the challenges you face every day.

    'Actionable, urgent insights for any principal ready to re-engage in the work that brought them to the field in the first place' Seth Godin

With examples, research, insights and years of experience, Daniel provides a refreshing perspective on mathematical beauty which would intrigue a wide range of readers from teachers, students, mathematical enthusiasts and indeed anyone interested in the concept of beauty.

    If you’ve ever wondered how you might explain mathematical beauty to someone who has only ever thought of mathematics as a bunch of symbols and equations which don’t make sense, then you’ll find this book truly enlightening.

It will also be of interest to Headteachers and other education leaders seeking to make their schools safe and inclusive workplaces for their LGBT staff and LGBT families.

    Through personal testimonies, advice and a rousing call to arms, this book shows how LGBT School Leaders are often amongst the most inclusive, creative, adaptable and intuitive colleagues, when they are able to flourish and be their authentic selves.

    Putting Staff First: A blueprint for revitalising our schools

    If we do not ensure, first and foremost, that our teachers are feeling physically and mentally well, they cannot be their best for their students. Consequently, a school which does not prioritise staff wellbeing is disadvantaging its own students. <P>‘Students first’ is a misplaced sentiment: the best thing for students is a happy, healthy, motivated, well-trained, expert staff. By putting staff first you are providing for students the one thing which will help them make good progress in their learning: truly great teaching. <P>Whilst it is easy to say that schools would not exist if it were not for the students, the glib converse is that without truly great school staff, the students would not be taught. What we need – as recruiting subject specialist teachers, school leaders and specialist support staff becomes increasingly difficult – is a revolution in how we treat our school staff. <P>We have to put our staff before our students because it is the only hope we have of securing what our students need most: a world class education. The longer our schools are populated with hypoxic adults, we imperial all our futures.

    The Teaching Delusion by senior education consultant Bruce Robertson offers a bold, refreshing and sometimes provocative stance on teaching and leadership. Informed by the latest educational research and drawing on two decades of professional experience, Robertson examines how teaching in schools can be transformed from ‘good’ to ‘great’.

    The new title from John Catt Educational poses challenging yet important questions to its readers. Schools are filled with great teachers, but is great teaching taking place in every classroom? How can educators expect students to cultivate a lifelong passion for learning if they themselves are lacking this?

    Robertson’s solution is twofold. To promote excellent teaching, there must be a shared understanding of what high-quality teaching really is – what does it look like, and how can it be fostered? Secondly, there must be a school-wide desire to engage in professional learning. With his school having won the General Teaching Council for Scotland’s ‘Excellence in Professional Learning Award’ in 2019, Robertson uses his personal track-record of success to explore how these barriers can be addressed to lead to a transformation in teaching practice.

    Written by a teacher and school leader for teachers and school leaders, The Teaching Delusion aims to support teaching communities to develop and improve their practice, in order to ensure that all students receive the same level of excellent education. Aligning himself firmly on the side of teachers – and keen to avoid ‘teacher bashing’! – Robertson sensitively engages in an often controversial discussion about how to improve the quality of teaching, aiming to boost knowledge, awareness and ultimately self-esteem in both educators and learners.

    The Teaching Delusion combines practicality with pedagogy in a thoughtful, unique approach – making it a vital resource for teachers and leaders at all levels who are looking to better their practice.

  48. Cognitive Science for Educators

    Cognitive Science for Educators

    Robert Hausmann (a.k.a. “Dr. Bob”) grew up in the corn fields of Ohio. His parents were both teachers at a community college, and his best friend’s parents were professors of psychology and computer science at the local university. Given these influences, Dr. Bob was destined to become a cognitive scientist with a passion for education. While working on his PhD at the University of Pittsburgh, he met Dr. Robert Glaser and was intrigued by something he said. Dr. Glaser wanted educators and cognitive scientists to speak a shared vocabulary. Cognitive science is admittedly an esoteric field of study, with its own unique lingo. Dr. Bob saw the utility in helping teachers understand the findings from cognitive science to improve the quality of education; therefore, he took up the goal that Dr. Glaser laid out for his students so many years ago. This book is an attempt to make that goal a reality, catalyzing conversations between cognitive scientists and educators and aiming to create a virtuous feedback loop between researchers and practitioners.
