Taking a novel approach to the concept of ‘voice’ within education systems, this insightful text considers the extent to which the values, opinions, beliefs and perspectives of pupils, families, teachers, and members of senior management are heard in educational settings, and explores what can be learned from integrating their views and opinions in decision-making processes. Pupil, Teacher and Family Voice in Educational Institutions traces the historical and legal developments which have heralded an increased appreciation of individuals’ perspectives in key decision-making processes. Chapters consider how various parties can be encouraged to voice their opinions and beliefs, and address the issues and challenges which may face institutions as they seek to create an atmosphere of open and active consultation and engagement. Drawing on evidence-based research, case studies and personal accounts, chapters reflect upon the concept of ‘voice’ in diverse settings and acknowledge the sometimes significant divergence between the intended and actual extent to which such opinions, beliefs and perspectives are reflected in day-to-day practice. Offering in-depth exploration of the concept of ‘voice’ and the benefits, implications, challenges and practicalities associated with it, this text will be of interest to future and in-service teachers, educational researchers and policy makers.

Better than Best Practice offers a new way of thinking about classroom practice, professional development, and improving teaching and learning. This companion book and website together offer a selection of rich and realistic video-based case studies, context and narrative, step-by-step guidance through key issues, and commentary and debate from a range of expert contributors. Carefully chosen video clips from primary school literacy lessons show real teachers in a variety of often knotty situations: classroom conversations that take unexpected turns; grappling with assessment; managing disagreements, to name a few. The book explores the educational potential of classroom talk and, in particular, the promise and problems of dialogic pedagogy. With an emphasis on the complexity and ‘messiness’ of teaching, Better than Best Practice considers how to learn from observing and discussing practice in order to develop professional judgment. It offers practical advice on how to organise and facilitate video-based professional development in which teachers share their practice with colleagues in order to learn from one another’s challenges, problems, dilemmas and breakthroughs. This exciting new resource argues that critical discussions of practice, which highlight dilemmas instead of prescribing solutions, help to develop and support thoughtful, flexible, and insightful practitioners: an approach that is better than best practice.

Very little is known about the quality of the learning experiences provided for pupils. This book contains the results of a major research project, conducted in a sample of English primary schools, in which particular attention was paid to the tasks children were assigned, to the degree of match between assigned tasks and pupil attainment, to the detailed observation of children at work. The teacher’s problems in assigning work appropriate to children’s attainments and the special problem of matching posed by the transfer of children from one class to another were also subjected to analysis. Lessons learned from the project were used as a basis for the design of an in-service course for teachers. The course, which was aimed at improving teachers’ matching skills was closely evaluated. The report contains data and analysis pertinent to each of the above issues. The findings reveal that despite the conscientious efforts of able teachers a number of serious issues are apparent – particularly in areas such as classroom organization and teacher diagnosis of children’s work.

This book presents a duoethnographic exploration and narrative account of what it means to be a teacher educator today. Adopting a narrative approach, the book presents different personal, political and institutional perspectives to interrogate common challenges facing teacher education and teacher educators today. In addition, the book compares and contrasts the teacher education landscapes in Australia and the UK and addresses a broad range of topics, including the autobiographical nature of teacher educators’ work, the value of learning from experience, the importance of collegiality and collaboration in learning to become a teacher educator, and the intersection of the personal, professional and political in the development of teacher educator pedagogies and research agendas. Each chapter combines personal narratives and research-based perspectives on the key dimensions of teacher educators’ work that can be found in the literature, including self-study research. Readers will gain a better understanding of the processes, influences and relationships that make being a teacher educator both a challenging and rewarding career. Accordingly, the book offers a valuable asset for university leaders, experienced and beginning teacher educators, and researchers interested in the professional learning and development of teacher educators.

Martin Griffin and Jon Mayhew's Storycraft: How to teach narrative writing is an inspiring and practical resource to support secondary school teachers in developing their students' creative writing. This book is not a style manual. Authors Martin Griffin and Jon Mayhew think there are plenty of those about. Instead, it picks apart the craft of narrative writing and equips teachers with activities designed to help their students overcome the difficulties they experience when tasked with creating something from nothing. Written by two fiction writers and English teachers with over forty years' combined experience in education, Storycraft packs in expert guidance relating to idea generation and the nature of story and provides off-the-peg writing prompts that teachers can immediately adopt and adapt in the classroom. The book breaks down the simple components that must be in place for a narrative to work the crafting of character, setting, shape and structure and shares fifty-one stimulating activities that will get students writing narratives regularly, more creatively and with greater confidence. Martin and Jon also include helpful advice in a chapter dedicated to the process of editing in which they provide activities designed to help students diagnose and improve misfiring narratives, and they close the book with invaluable tips for GCSE exam preparation written directly for students and with an impending creative writing exam in mind. Suitable for English teachers of students aged eleven to eighteen.

From the opening Sanskrit mantra to the final act of voting in South Africa's first democratic elections, this lyrical memoir provides a unique perspective on South Africa's modern history. The account shows how a young Hindu woman of Indian ancestry, living in South Africa in the 1940s, defied convention, married a Muslim man, and became an activist at time when Muslim women were seldom seen in such a role. As a teacher, she spoke up during the political strife of that highly segregated era, which included the relocation of Indians and angry student boycotts, and here shares her philosophies and insights into education. Filled with characters from both a personal and national context, the memoir captures the nuances of an important time and place.

“No action is bad in itself; I mean, even murder can be justified...” Set in the familiar setting of a pub, House Rules follows the story of three unlikely heroes who come together and show that it is possible to carry out an evil act, and get away with it. Martin is a computer expert. After his family run into financial difficulties, he believes that he can manipulate the money supply and rise from the ashes, but his psychotic tendencies and reliance on alcohol get in the way. Richard is a public schoolboy, creative soul and leading light in the advertising industry. When the two men become friends in a profound way, they team up to rule the pub with a rod of iron. Joanna and Sabrina, the respective spouse and girlfriend, inhabit the pub’s alcove with Jane, a lesbian who believes in sexual equality. Tensions rise as Joanna and Martin’s relationship is revealed to be cruel and abusive, and Joanna decides to leave Martin. As a painful divorce looms, Joanna and Jane attempt to get a more advantageous settlement and secretly record the men’s conversations. Deciding to record their shared experiences in a short story, Jane sends her manuscript over to Joanna, but Martin hacks into the computer and the die is cast. A murder is committed, and fact and fiction merge as the reader is taken through the events of the first half of the book and what happens thereafter... Inspired by Tom Sharpe, Robert Peston and Quentin Tarantino, House Rules deals with a number of issues, including mental health, domestic abuse and fascist behaviour. Chris Haxby’s debut novel will appeal to readers of black comedy, as well as those who enjoy crime novels.
