SWPS Learning's insight:

The incomparable Bill Rogers looking at behaviour management in an entirely practical, respectful way.  He also is very clear about intervention by other teachers, and how this can be done at its worst - undermining and adding to the de-skilling of a colleague -  and at its best: allowing the teacher a 'time out' with their honour intact.

SWPS Learning's insight:

Clear and informative - useful for colleagues but also good to use with older students.  An excellent reminder that if you don't have to make an effort/engage/figure something out you just won't learn it - good evidence is offered too.

SWPS Learning's insight:

Yes they are american, yes there is mention of softball, but a clear message that 'are you enjoying it?  Are you learning?  Did all that practice pay off?' are much better questions to be asking  young people than "Did you win?  Did you get an A*?'  And much better not because its fuzzy, much better because achievement-focused praise requires a health warning.  If we focus on the outcome, not the process, the effort, the struggle, the learning, the failures that enable our learning and growth, then we are highly likely to end up with perfectionist, risk-averse, dangerously anxious and potentially depressed children and students.  And we don't want that, do we?
