              The Educators' Guide to Building Whole-school Wellbeing addresses challenges faced by schools wanting to improve wellbeing. While many schools globally now understand the need to promote and protect student wellbeing, they often find themselves stuck - not knowing where to start,... what to prioritise, or how to implement whole-school change. This book fills that gap. This book provides companionships for schools through rich stories from schools around the world who have created wellbeing practices that work for their schools. It guides educators through processes that help create individualised, contextualised, school wellbeing plans. With chapters addressing 'why wellbeing', what is 'whole school', change dynamics, measurement, staff wellbeing, coaching, cultural responsiveness, and how to build buy-in, it is the first of its kind. Balancing research and practice for each topic, with expert practitioner and researcher insights, this book gives schools access to best-practice guidance from around the world, in a user-friendly format, designed for busy schools. What sets the author's apart from the many school wellbeing practitioners globally, is their substantial experience working alongside diverse school groups. While many have experience in one school, few work across a multitude of very different schools and clusters, giving these practising-academics a unique appreciation for effective, cross-context processes.

              This book differs from the bulk of existing literature dealing with terrorism by emphasising the historic theoretical and practical foundation to contemporary terrorism, by placing it within the framework of contending hypotheses about international relations, strategic and confl...cit analysis, along with some of the key writings on peace and reconciliation. It argues that terrorism is a logical, and often reasonable, mode for expression of grievances by disenfranchised groups or organisations, which are unable to be heard through normal political processes. In order to understand the potential of terrorism one has to analyse the structures available for effecting dissent and change. Modernisation and globilisation combined with the increased power of states increases the attractiveness of terrorism for disaffected groups. Within this context the study links various groups, forms and regions where terrorism exists. Unlike most studies it does not start from a state-centred bias, ie how to prevent attacks on legitimate states, but assesses terrorism within its own motivations, methods and objectives.

              'This splendid, disinfecting book needs to be distributed gratis to every teacher, administrator, and college professor in the US' - Professor E.D. Hirsch, Eminent US Scholar and former University of Virginia Professor of Education and Humanities 'It is clear, from reading this b...ook, that much of what is currently considered as 'best practice' in schools, is in fact close to useless: at best merely a waste of time, and at worst an impediment to learning. [This book] is extremely controversial in the best way possible: it is correct.' - Tom Bennett, TES columnist, author and teacher, UK. In this controversial new book, Daisy Christodoulou offers a thought-provoking critique of educational orthodoxy. Drawing on her recent experience of teaching in challenging schools, she shows through a wide range of examples and case studies just how much classroom practice contradicts basic scientific principles. She examines seven widely-held beliefs which are holding back pupils and teachers: - Facts prevent understanding - Teacher-led instruction is passive - The 21st century fundamentally changes everything - 'you can always just look it up' -We should teach transferable skills - Projects and activities are the best way to learn - Teaching knowledge is indoctrination. In each accessible and engaging chapter, Christodoulou sets out the theory of each myth, considers its practical implications and shows the worrying prevalence of such practice. Then, she explains exactly why it is a myth, with reference to the principles of modern cognitive science. She builds a powerful case explaining how governments and educational organisations around the world have let down teachers and pupils by promoting and even mandating evidence-less theory and bad practice. This blisteringly incisive and urgent text is essential reading for all teachers, teacher training students, policy makers, head teachers, researchers and academics around the world.
