Whatever it is that makes you you, can you affect it? Your answer to that question gives us a glimpse into your ‘mindset’. People with fixed mindsets believe that fundamental qualities like intelligence are essentially stable; people with growth mindsets believe that such qualities can be developed and nurtured. As teachers, if we can foster growth mindsets in our students the results will be transformative. Barry Hymer and Mike Gershon begin by explaining how learners with growth mindsets are: more open to challenges and constructively critical feedback; resilient in the face of obstacles and initial failure; convinced that effort makes a difference; able to learn well with and from others; likely to rise to the top – and stay there. The rest of the book focuses on practical strategies for developing this kind of learner. Cartoons, diagrams and visual prompts are used throughout to support the text. The chapter Trial and Error is about high challenge tasks and the value of errors, mistakes and initial failure. Later chapters cover what exactly is meant by effort and how to make it appeal to students; the theory and practice of feedback (as opposed to praise and prizes); acquiring meta-cognitive tools for ‘thinking about thinking’ and ‘learning about learning’; the power of language and drama to raise awareness of growth mindsets; and growing group growth mindsets. Former teacher Barry Hymer is now Prof. of Psychology in Education at the University of Cumbria. He wrote the Gifted & Talented and P4C Pocketbooks. Education consultant Mike Gershon’s online teaching tools have been viewed/downloaded more than 2 million times by teachers in over 180 countries.

People with fixed mindsets believe that fundamental qualities like intelligence are essentially stable; people with growth mindsets believe that such qualities can be developed and nurtured. Research shows that learners with growth mindsets are more: open to challenges and constructively critical feedback; resilient in the face of obstacles and failure; convinced that effort makes a difference; able to learn well with and from others; likely to succeed. If we can foster growth mindsets in our pupils the results will be transformative. The Growth Mindset Pocketbook is full of classroom strategies for doing just that. Barry Hymer and Mike Gershon look at high-challenge tasks and the value of errors, mistakes and failure; exactly what we mean by effort and how to make that attractive to students; great feedback; the power of language; and 'going seriously meta' – equipping students to think about their own thinking and learn about their own learning.

We all know teachers who exude an air of authority the minute they walk into a room. Like magic, they command attention without a word being spoken. When they speak and interact they are engaging and compelling. Their classes are calm and focused, teacher and students work well together and behaviour is rarely a problem. How do they do it? Classroom presence is the effect created by your teacher persona. Drawing on material from the worlds of acting and improvisation, sports psychology and NLP this book demonstrates how to develop your persona and radiate presence. Learn about ‘status techniques’ and how to tap into a shared energy with your audience; master the triad of skills that create presence; work with your ‘cultural architects’, and see your classroom as a stage where voice, breathing, spatial awareness and costume all play a part. It’s not magic, but with a few tricks up your sleeve you can transform the atmosphere, relationships and behaviour in your classes in just a short spell!

‘The mind is not a vessel to be filled but a fire to be kindled’ (Plutarch). The trouble is that, as much as we believe those words, we’re sometimes under such pressure to ‘deliver’ that we’re tricked into the spoon-feeding shortcut. We then become trapped, with our pupils, in an unhealthy cycle where we do more and more of the work and they rely on us more and more heavily. The Independent Learning Pocketbook is about breaking that cycle and creating ambitious learners who are self-regulated, self-motivated, resourceful and resilient - learners with clear goals and direction and who use their initiative to achieve success. Peter Anstee draws on a variety of research, as well as first-hand classroom experience and observation, in this clear-sighted look at how to inspire and nurture the people you teach to become lifelong learners.

The OED defines character as ‘the mental and moral qualities distinctive to an individual’. For sure, some of these qualities we’re born with but we know from neuroscience that character is also something we can grow. There’s evidence to show that by teaching children how to collaborate, adapt, be curious and creative; to show initiative, persistence, flexibility and good judgement, etc, we are equipping them to learn and be successful in life. We’re also increasing their chances of social, emotional and physical wellbeing.This Pocketbook focuses on intellectual character. It starts with attitudes, approaches, events and activities that create a ‘character culture’ in classrooms and schools. It suggests ways of incorporating character education into lessons: planning, framing and setting tasks that target specific dispositions. Grit – the desire and ability to persevere; rising to a challenge and showing stamina and persistence – has a chapter of its own. So does resilience: the magic ingredient that helps us cope with adversity, disappointment, shock and failure. The author concludes with how to reflect on, evaluate and celebrate personal and intellectual development. C J Simister (National Association of Gifted Children’s ‘Inspiring Person of the Year’, 2011) has almost 20 years’ teaching experience. She regularly speaks at international conferences and works with schools around the world, advising on helping young people to develop the intellectual qualities and skills needed to thrive and succeed in school and beyond.

It's every new teacher's first concern and it's an area about which even the most experienced teachers are never complacent - how to control their classes. This new edition of the Teachers Pocketbooks top-selling title is a practical, authoritative guide to creating calm classes and focused, co-operative students. The book starts from the premise that teachers cannot control the behaviour of children; instead they must seek to influence it. Teachers are most effective in managing behaviour when they focus on antecedents and consequences. This means building relationships and using preventative strategies followed by consistent use of logical consequences. The book covers different styles of behaviour management; getting the basics right; eight core principles and a ten-step discipline plan. A section entitled developing the toolkit offers a broad range of strategies for teachers to use. All are explained in practical, classroom terms with examples of phrases to use for maximum effectiveness. Underpinning the repertoire of techniques is a strong framework: the 4Rs rights, responsibilities, rules and routines. Liberal use of cartoons, diagrams, mnemonics and other visual devices reinforce the message and fast-track understanding. "An invaluable guide for all adults who work with children. This book will change the way you think and act in the classroom and should be compulsory reading." Tim Plumb, Head Teacher, Woolwich Polytechnic School "A fantastic read. Buy copies for your staff this year - they'll become more effective by using the approaches outlined in this book." Sarah Skinner, Head, Claydon High School "Provides realistic and effective strategies to empower all teachers to create and establish a positive learning environment for all. I recommend it." Teresa Copeland, Assistant Principal, Strood Academy
