Overview

'It's easy to see why Bill Rogers is revered by generations of teachers across the world. The stories assembled here are compelling and reflective. They will provide a stimulus and support to teachers which will have the merit of unlocking the minds and opening the hearts of the pupils they teach. Bill's overview and commentary will as usual resonate with schools and teachers. It deserves a place along with his other books in the staff library. It will help teachers at the end of their tether both preserve their sanity and extend the tether!'

Sir Tim Brighouse, Advisor, Hamlyn Foundation and Visiting Profesor, Insitute of Education, University of London

In this new edition of his bestselling book, Bill Rogers brings together contributions from practising teachers that suggest ways to tackle disruptive and challenging behaviour. Bill introduces and comments on each chapter, setting our key principles for behaviour leadership in the style that makes him such a popular author.

There are numerous case studies drawn from practice, each showing how the teacher manages the situation and what the outcome was: these examples from practice highlight the difference teachers can make to their students' behaviour, attitude, self-esteem and peer acceptance. Chapters look at: finding a way back from inappropriate behaviour; dealing with very challenging behaviour on a daily basis; creating a peaceful school and devloping positive practice.

New material in this book includes:

• new case studeies

• more analysis of actions taken and skills used when managing challenging behaviour

• a new chapter on working with confronting and angry parents

• opportunities for reflection, to encourage discussion with colleagues

• managing anger in ourselves and our children

The direct, practical and inspirational nature of these accounts will resonate with all teachers and school support staff working with any age group. Based on the everyday experiences of the teachers who have written them, these are teachers' accounts offering sound advice and guidance to fellow professionals.
