by Caroline Bentley-Davies, Raising Achievement Pocketbook Book available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Raising Achievement Pocketbook books, The drive in schools to ensure that all students reach their potential is fuelled by a wealth of data for tracking progress and revealing which groups and individuals are underachieving. The challenge for teachers is to find strategies that ‘close the gap’, allowing every pupil the best possible chance of success. With characteristic energy, Caroline Bentley-Davies shows how to strengthen learning and engagement, so boosting progress and attainment. After dispelling some commonly held beliefs about raising achievement, Caroline describes a ‘climate for achievement’. Drawing on education research on feedback, metacognition and motivation, she brings theory to life with examples and case studies. Her section on exams and revision cleverly applies the theory of marginal gains and elsewhere she highlights the role of parents and peers and stresses the importance of great CPD. A thought-provoking read that could raise your game and improve student outcomes.
by Victoria Mason, Speech Language Communication Pocketbook Book available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Speech Language Communication Pocketbook books, Most children develop speech, language and communication skills instinctively, a process that begins at birth and continues into adulthood. However, in most classrooms there are children - as many as 50% in some areas - who have not acquired the fundamental spoken and written skills that underpin all types of social interaction, skills that are essential for success in education and at work. This book shows teachers how to support pupils with SLCN - speech, language and communication needs. Written by a speech and language therapist and a secondary teacher working in mainstream schools, this highly illustrated Pocketbook begins by defining SLCN and placing it against a backdrop of normal language development. The authors identify who has SLCN and explain how weak communication skills lead to academic, social, emotional and behavioural problems. Language is both received and transmitted; both input and output pose problems for pupils with SLCN. A chapter on attention and listening covers hearing impairment, auditory memory, teacher talk and active listening skills. It is followed by sections on receptive language difficulties - understanding concepts and inference, reasoning and deduction - and expressive language difficulties: building sentences and narrative in speech and writing. Speech difficulties such as stammering, phonological difficulties, articulation and voice disorders are also covered. Learning, storing and retrieving vocabulary are given a section of their own as is social communication. The book concludes with ideas for implementing a whole school approach. Cartoons, diagrams and visual prompts support the text throughout.

by Eleanor Dommett, Learning The Brain Pocketbook Book available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Learning The Brain Pocketbook books, Teachers are responsible for shaping the connections inside learners' brains on a day-to-day basis, connections that will remain in place for the rest of those learners' lives. Understanding the science of learning in the brain is, therefore, a powerful way to inform teaching and have an impact on learning. Furthermore, research evidence shows that teaching children about how the brain learns can improve their motivation to learn. So, when education writer and former teacher Richard Churches got together with two neuroscientists and a group of teachers they saw an exciting opportunity to pool their expertise and explore how insight from neuroscience could translate into classroom practice. Learning & the Brain Pocketbook is full of accessible information about how the brain works, how it learns, how it memorises and how it develops. At every turn, the material is discussed in relation to the classroom. Numerous tips and strategies draw on the neuroscience to enhance and support what you do with your learners. Learning about the brain is fun - and it makes for great professional development.
