    Running the Room: The Teacher's Guide to Behaviour (SINGLE COPY)

    For bulk purchases, email as@johncatt.com or CLICK HERE for a bundle of 10 copies for £100.

    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.

    Much Promise: Successful schools in England

    For many years Barnaby Lenon was the headmaster of Harrow. On his retirement he helped set up a state school in east London, widely regarded as one of the most successful free schools. In 2016 he went on a tour of schools in England that achieve outstanding results, in many cases with disadvantaged pupils.

    In Much Promise, he describes how they do it, set in the context of the latest research into school and teacher performance. He evaluates the school system in England and the effectiveness of recent reforms; he looks at how parents and governors achieve results and puts the spotlight on the school curriculum, exam systems and social mobility.

    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.

    Courage in the Classroom: LGBT teachers share their stories

    We are all at our most effective when we can be ourselves at work, but more than half of LGBT teachers hide their sexual identity within their school workplace. For LGBT teachers, vigilance, concealment and assimilation, take a great deal of energy, on top of what is already a very demanding job.

    This book is essential reading for any LGBT teacher aspiring to succeed as their authentic self. 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. Based around the inspirational work of the Courageous Leaders programme, this book turns on its head the notion that it can be difficult to be a leader in school and be LGBT.

    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.

  23. 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.

  24. 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.

  27. The Bully in The Greenhouse

    The Bully in The Greenhouse

    Are children born to bully others or is upbringing and schooling to blame? The answer is clearly not straightforward. Dr Graham Ramsden addresses these and other important questions in an attempt to explore what schools can do to address this very damaging and endemic social act.

    The Bully in The Greenhouse puts the child who bullies at the very centre of this exploration and scrutinises the act of bullying from a range of perspectives. As we circle the greenhouse – a metaphor for looking at things from different perspectives – the book explores how societies create their own bullies as well as what some of the key components of child development tell us about why some children choose to bully others.

    Written in an easy to read and often humorous style, The Bully in the Greenhouse uses social and psychological research to identify what schools, parents and children themselves can do to reduce bullying in 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.

    Mathematical Beauty: What is Mathematical Beauty and Can Anyone Experience It?

    How is it possible that a mathematician might talk of beauty in an equation more passionately than an artist talks about a painting? And if mathematics is so beautiful, why haven’t more of us experienced this beauty?

    Daniel Pearcy delves into the wonderful world of mathematical beauty to understand exactly what it is, and whether anyone can experience it. 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.

  38. 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).

  39. The Fascist Painting: What is Cultural Capital?

    The Fascist Painting: What is Cultural Capital?

    PUBLISHED OCTOBER 2020. AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER

    The Ofsted Inspection Framework states that cultural capital is 'The essential knowledge that pupils need to be educated citizens' and that schools 'should be introducing [students] to the best that has been thought and said and helping to engender an appreciation of human creativity and achievement'. They are now considering, 'the extent to which schools are equipping pupils with the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life.' But what does this term mean? And how are schools to respond to this?

    In this densely argued and wide ranging text, Phil Beadle answers those questions and many more by using the work of Pierre Bourdieu to prompt a discussion of how we improve the provision of cultural capital in our schools. Where does the best that has been thought and said come from? Why is the government importing the unexamined language of the private school into the state sector? What is the real purpose behind character education? Does sport, as is reputed, teach resilience, and why would anyone think it was appropriate to teach children a quality they already have? Is cultural capital just ruling class culture? Chiefly, does using a term originated by a French intellectual and radical sociologist to instate the culture of the rich as being superior prove anything other more a complete absence of thought, or have they accidentally given us a radical tool to change education for the better? This is a serious, rich and deeply intelligent piece of work that will radically alter the way we view culture in schools and will be a key text for anyone designing a curriculum.

    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.
