‘Why can’t you just get along?’ This is a question children are commonly asked. But they will usually have a very ‘good’ reason for their conflict – ‘Because he’s always telling me what to do!’; ‘She stole my lunch!’. The fact is that any in social situation there is a potential for conflict. What children need are the skills to manage conflict when it does arise. Helping your pupils to communicate effectively and manage conflict looks as the basics of effective communication and the essential skills for forming and sustaining productive relationships. Focusing on promoting a culture of fairness, respect, inclusiveness and cooperation in the classroom, this book shows teachers how they can help their pupils understand things from another’s point of view and foster empathy, by learning specific skills (such as describing behaviours, checking one’s perceptions, summarising ideas and feelings and giving and receiving feedback) and practicing specific activities (such as role play, structured controversy, problem-solving, simulation, discussion and reflection). This book suggests ways to organise the classroom, provides teaching strategies and pupil activities and gives notes on assessment and record-keeping. It is complemented by several pages of proformas, which can be copied or amended for use in the classroom.

The classroom is one of the few places where pupils are regularly required to share, wait, take turns, compromise and work in pairs or groups. And when they are involved in the same project or task, not only are they expected to get along with others, but to get along well – well enough to communicate effectively and work together towards a shared goal or group product. It can be a challenging way to work for some pupils, but when it is done well, it can be very rewarding. When people are working together effectively, they are aware of each person’s roles and responsibilities, feel valued and respected, use a range of skills and strategies and understand the various processes and protocols required. And once the goal is reached, there is the opportunity to celebrate and share the accomplishment. Helping your pupils to work cooperatively clearly sets out the features of cooperative working and explains how it can enhance the many skills needed for effective social interaction, healthy relationships and active citizenship. Focusing on how the teacher’s role is critical to the success of cooperative working, this book shows teachers how they can develop a repertoire of strategies to help their pupils work cooperatively. Explicit instruction, modelling, feedback, intervention and strategic task selection are all described in detail and supported by examples. The book also suggests ways to organise the classroom, provides teaching strategies and pupil activities and gives notes on assessment and record-keeping. It is complemented by several pages of proformas, which can be copied or amended for use in the classroom.

For many children, school life is hard. They may have a learning difficulty or problems at home. They may feel left out or have trouble making friends. Other children may be stealing from them or bullying them. However, the good news is that children can form a protective understanding of themselves that can help them withstand life’s adversities. When they are able to see and draw on their own beliefs, skills and support systems in a positive way, they develop self-esteem and an optimistic outlook – the foundations of resilience. Helping your pupils to be resilient clearly explains what reslience and self-esteem are and how they can foster a child’s emotional well-being. Focusing on the whole school environment, this book shows teachers how they can help develop resilience through support of their pupils’ understandings and the school’s prevention and intervention strategies. This book suggests ways to organise the classroom, provides teaching strategies and pupil activities and gives notes on assessment and record-keeping. It is complemented by several pages of proformas, which can be copied or amended for use in the classroom.

Who? What? When? Where? Why? How? Asking questions has always been fundamental to making sense of the world. Unless we are able to critically question what we see, hear and read, we can’t solve problems, create solutions, make informed decisions or enact change. And in our information-laden age, it is more important than ever to be able to decide what’s relevant, legitimate and valuable. Helping your pupils to ask questions describes in-detail how questions can generate various levels of cognition, from remembering, understanding and applying to analysing, creating and evaluating. Focusing on the many different kinds of questions and ways that teachers themselves can model good questioning, this book shows teachers how they can help their pupils develop questioning skills through encouragement and a wide variety of targeted approaches. The book also suggests ways to set up a question-friendly classroom, provides teaching strategies and pupil activities and gives notes on assessment and record-keeping. It is complemented by several pages of proformas, which can be copied or amended for use in the classroom.
