  22. How Poems Work: Meanings, techniques and effects in 100 poems from Beowulf to the Iraq War

    How Poems Work: Meanings, techniques and effects in 100 poems from Beowulf to the Iraq War

    Readers of poetry are often told to leave poems alone - to learn them by heart or to enjoy how they sound and leave it at that. This is all very well, except for those readers who have to study poetry at school or university. Or other readers who don't yet enjoy poems because they are daunted by their seemingly impenetrable meanings or inaccessible techniques.

    In this annotated anthology, Robert Gullifer and Matthew Jenkinson demystify poetry while showing that there are many good reasons to pick poems apart. From Beowulf to the Iraq War, a millennium of poetry is presented to give readers a sense of how poems have evolved since we first started writing them down.

    Hairdresser or Footballer? Bridging the gender gap in schools

    Teaching is a profession where we are persistently trying to ensure that our children have the best possible future, yet gender is still a huge hurdle in terms of expectations. We are setting children up to fail because society instills certain messages in them that can often stop them from achieving what they desire and as teachers, we aren’t always opposing them. Often, teachers are so removed from this issue that they don’t see it going on in their classroom. This book provides thinking points for teachers and useful strategies for schools to overcome this divide and provide equal opportunities for all children. It’s commonplace to see this divide in newspapers and on social media, it’s something that needs to be addressed. As educators, we need to be at the forefront of this revolution.

  39. The Teaching Delusion

    The Teaching Delusion

    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.

  50. Stop Talking About Wellbeing

    Stop Talking About Wellbeing

    Stop Talking About Wellbeing: A pragmatic approach to teacher workload

    As statistical figures of teachers leaving the profession reaches an alarming level, and teachers' mental health becomes a fundamental concern, wellbeing has been pushed to the top of the national agenda in a bid for schools to consider how to look after their staff.

    However, wellbeing has become a tokenistic feature within the education sector, as staff participate in compulsory wellbeing-linked activities that have very little impact on their workload or their ability to do what they came into the profession to do: teach young people. With this book, Kat aims to flip the narrative on wellbeing completely.

    In a critical consideration of research both in and outside of education, Kat explores the key factors of a teacher's role within school, outlining a series of tools that teachers can use to take ownership of their workload, and achieve wellbeing through purposeful job fulfilment. Interviewing experts in the educational sector, Kat provides practical strategies for teachers in a bid to drive instrumental change to workload within schools at a grassroots level, but additionally, a range of case studies for teachers to use to challenge the norm so that we can create a profession built to last.
