How confident do you feel in your personal tutoring role? In the face of ever-increasing and demanding learner issues, do you feel equipped to provide the essential support to meet their needs? This timely book provides you with essential help in an area which has often been given little attention in comparison with curriculum delivery by: contextualising the support side of a teacher’s role within further education; looking beyond conventional notions of personal tutoring and coaching; appreciating the real world applications of issues; recognising the benefits personal tutoring and coaching bring to learners and educational institutions; reflecting on a variety of different approaches to support learners’ achievement as well as positively affecting institutional key performance indicators. It provides proven practical advice and guidance for planning and delivering group tutorials, undertaking one to ones, identifying and managing vulnerable learners and those at risk of not achieving, as well as helping learners to progress onto their chosen career paths. It explores methods to engage the most disaffected and hard to reach learners, as well as stretching and challenging the more able. It includes clear aims, detailed case studies, learning checklists and a unique self-assessment system for the reader and the educational institution. You are encouraged to develop your skills in order to influence individual learners as well as the systems, processes and performance of your educational institution by becoming an outstanding personal tutor. The text is an excellent foundation for the majority of modules on teacher training qualifications and is relevant to any pre-service or in-service trainee teacher or existing practitioner with a personal tutoring role, a specialised personal tutor, manager or anyone in a learner-facing role within further education.

It’s more than six years since the bestselling Lazy Teacher’s Handbook was first published and Jim Smith’s Lazy Teaching philosophy has developed significantly in that time. This new revised edition details Jim’s latest thinking on how to be the best lazy, but outstanding, teacher you can be. Every chapter has been revised and some significantly expanded, particularly those on planning, conducting and reviewing lazy lessons. Others have been updated with Jim’s latest tried-and-tested techniques, which all shift the emphasis away from the teaching and onto the learning. Have you ever wondered what would happen in your classroom if you simply stopped teaching? Over the last few decades the demands of countless education initiatives, not to mention the pressures good teachers put on themselves, have seen so much teaching squeezed into our lessons, it must have squeezed out some of the learning. Maybe if we spent a little less time teaching and gave students a little more time to learn, things would be different. Maybe this would allow us more opportunities to build relationships with the class and develop that all-important rapport with the individuals who might just need us most. Maybe we could even reclaim our Sunday afternoons from planning and marking? The Lazy Way can help you get more out of your students and at the same time help you to get your life back. More than just a series of tricks, the Lazy Way is something Jim Smith has put together over years of experience working with all sorts of learners (and teachers) who want their lessons to be different yet still be rewarded with academic success. The approach was born out of Jim’s frustration with doing a job he loves but being slowly killed by it in the process. And, as all good psychologists know, if necessity is the mother of invention then frustration is the absent father, and being knackered the grown-up sibling who just won’t leave home. If you want your students to learn more and you to work less, then The Lazy Teacher’s Handbook provides you with all the arguments and evidence you need. The new edition is packed full of even more easy-to-apply, highly effective strategies (which Ofsted have rated as ‘outstanding’) all with the seal of approval from real students in real classrooms. So, next time someone tells you to get a life, this book will make it possible. Contents include: 1. Pass Notes, 2. Old Fashioned Teaching with a Lazy Twist, 3. The Lazy Approach to Lesson Outcomes, 4. Structuring the Lazy Lesson, 5. The Prepare Phase – Great Lazy Lesson Ideas, 6. The Action Phase – Great Lazy Lesson Ideas, 7. The Review Phase – Great Lazy Lesson Ideas, 8. Marking, Assessment and Feedback RIP!, 9. IT – the Lazy Teacher’s Friend, 10. Lazy Language that Changes Everything, 11. Differentiation Done the Lazy Way, 12. Getting the Best from Teaching Assistants – the Lazy Way, 13. The Lazy Tutor

Honest To Goodness

Honest to Goodness proposes a new Christian presence that is free of dogmatism, exclusivism, and biblicism. It charts a way back to the spiritual and ethical revolution begun by Jesus of Nazareth, one that can make a vital difference to needless evils such as bigotry, environmental destruction, poverty, and violence. The book reveals the author’s experience of living under, against, and after apartheid, insisting that a faith that does not confront this world’s evils is no faith at all, but a dangerous betrayal of all that is good, beautiful, and true. Honest to Goodness unflinchingly identifies the grave moral shortcomings that are embedded in traditional Christian beliefs and practices, and proposes ways of transforming them into harmony with the divine goodness that the author discerns everywhere. Embracing a world of religious diversity, science, and creative philosophy, the book describes a new way of experiencing and expressing the divine. It defends faith by moving beyond both theism and atheism.

Nancy Mitford was a brilliant personality, a remarkable novelist and a legendary letter-writer. It is not widely known that she was also a bookseller. From 1942 to 1945 she worked in Heywood Hill's famous shop in Curzon Street, Mayfair, and effectively ran it when Heywood Hill was called up for war service. After the war she left to live in France, but she maintained an abiding interest in the shop, its stock, and the many and varied customers who themselves form a cavalcade of the literary stars of post-war Britain. Her letters to Heywood Hill advise on recent French titles that might appeal to him and his customers, gossip engagingly about life in Paris, and enquire anxiously about the reception of her own books, while seeking advice about new titles to read. In return Heywood kept her up to date with customers and their foibles, with news about their friends, and with aspects of literary and bookish life in London.

Craftspeople usually leave their work to speak for itself, so it is a rare privilege to have the thoughts, stories, experiences, observations and feelings of such skilled people in a book that enables us to share their insights on the nature of their work and the way they live. Most have been featured in Resurgence magazine, which regularly features crafts and their connection with spirituality, ecology, and sustainable, joyful living. The work of these creators comes from their great dedication to their craft and the sincerity with which they integrate their philosophy with daily life, in much the same way that their bowls and baskets, chairs and tables, shoes and spoons are art for daily use. Their words inspire, and their works delight. These essays, with beautiful accompanying colour photographs, encourage us to have faith in the human spirit and the human endeavour.

Peer tutors have the ability to make a positive influence in the lives of their peers with disabilities. The Peer Tutor Student Handbook will provide the resources and training needed to make their time in the special education classroom mutually beneficial. Here's what students had to say about their involvement as peer tutors in a special education classroom: "This experience helped me grow as a person. I wanted to do this so I could understand how to help others and learn different ways to communicate with different people. I started out being a peer tutor and teaching them, but I ended up being their friend." Katy, Peer Tutor "My favorite part was just being able to interact with students in the special education classroom and have fun and get to see who they were. They're people just like us. They're a little bit different but they're still someone." Peter, Peer Tutor "I became a peer tutor because I want to be a special education teacher when I grow up. My favorite part of the job was getting to know the kids. Having this experience made me grow as a person." Chrissy, Peer Tutor Together, Candice and Suzanne have over 40 years of teaching experience in special education and have developed peer tutor programs in every classroom they've worked in. Their peer tutoring model of reverse inclusion maximizes peer interaction in natural and appropriate ways. They were inspired to share their experiences recruiting and training peer tutors knowing the positive effects that these programs have on both special education students and the general education students who work as peer tutors. Used in conjunction with the Teacher's Guide to Peer Tutoring (purchased separately), this manual sets the standard for students working as peer tutors. The Peer Tutor Student Handbook belongs to Styer-Fitzgerald Publishing's line of outstanding educational products, including the Styer-Fitzgerald Program for Functional Academics. Unique among special education curricula, the Styer-Fitzgerald Program provides a comprehensive approach to teaching functional skills to students with mild, moderate, and severe disabilities, including autism.
