Guerrilla Tactics for Teachers
Guerrilla Tactics for Teachers $39.95
Guerrilla Tactics for Teachers is a life-saving, career-preserving, sanity-building guide for teachers. Based on over 30 years of research, it is an essential collection of behaviour management and learning enhancement strategies that will help educators at any stage of their career. These are the methods that will help educators create and maintain calm classrooms that enable students to learn effectively, achieve great results, and still have a life. It provides the secret knowledge of survival in a sector that loses many great teachers to other careers when they decide it is too hard and walk away.
The Connection Curriculum
The Connection Curriculum $39.95
The Connection Curriculum challenges the status quo in education, arguing that a lack of genuine connection is harming students and communities. Drawing on extensive research, Matt Pitman explores the essential role of connection in fostering academic achievement and student wellbeing. Through candid reflections and practical insights, educators are invited to rethink traditional approaches and embrace sustainable strategies for building whole-school connectedness. Divided into three parts, this book delves into understanding connection, building sustainable practices and maintaining connection over time. It focuses on collective leadership and community engagement to equip educators with the tools and inspiration to embark on the journey towards creating truly connected communities. Whether you are a teacher, school leader or community member seeking to revolutionise your school culture or promote positive change in your organisation, The Connection Curriculum provides the path to make it happen.
Semi-Educated
Semi-Educated $32.95
‘Everyone knows everything about teachers. They can tell you about their holidays (too long), their days (too short), their whinging (too much), their job (too easy), and their personalities (too bossy). I thought I knew what I was doing when I retrained as a teacher as part of my mid-life crisis. I. Had. No. Idea.’ Georgie wanted to make a difference and do some good in the world. She decided that becoming an English teacher was the perfect solution. She could impart her love of literature to the impressionable young minds of tomorrow as a ‘mature-age’ high-school teacher. Not to mention enjoying the perks of working 9 to 3 five days a week! She had survived years of law, government offices and hobby farming, combined with hand-rearing her own children, so how hard could teaching really be? Well, quite hard as it turned out. Quite hard indeed. A must for teachers, educators, parents and anyone who appreciates dark humour! Read Chapter 1 here.
