This book draws from the real-life experiences and perceptions of
teachers in secondary and primary schools, and documents their
ideas on how they define their job, the difficulties they face in
the classroom and the support they need. Different approaches to
teacher support are considered and the book includes an in-depth
case study of a school that tried to implement some of these
approaches. Key issues covered include: * the motivations and needs
of teachers and pupils * the gaps between theory and practice in
the professional role and performance of the teacher * the
behaviour of pupils and their views on the classroom * working with
support staff * the assertive discipline system. Drawing on her own
experience and the experiences of others, Diana Fox Wilson
recommends that teachers are supported by a classroom environment
that fosters insight and understanding between pupils and teachers,
and urges a culture of change that recognises teachers as a crucial
influence on young people's lives. Supporting Teachers Supporting
Pupils is packed with helpful and practical advice for all
teachers. It will be a reassuring read for any teacher finding
themselves feeling stranded in the classroom.
