Surviving and Succeeding in Difficult Classrooms by Paul Blum

Book Description

Following the success of the first edition, this revised second edition, brings the reader up-to-date with what it is like to be a teacher in a difficult class, and regularly faced with apathy, defiance and aggression. Sadly, numerous government initiatives since the 1998 publication of the first edition have not transformed the situation for teachers in difficult classrooms. Here, Paul Blum explores the impact and consequences of the changes made in the intervening years. Like its predecessor it offers sensible, practical advice, for all classroom teachers, on how to survive and succeed in the face of tremendous difficulty, and this updated edition includes new sections on teaching pupils with low reading ages, and on making the most effective use of teaching assistants.

A short, healthy outburst of anger will often solve problems. Unhealthy anger, by contrast, is damaging. Teachers are required to manage increasing numbers of pupils who struggle to control their anger and who court conflict. This title helps teachers with strategies for succeeding at that task.

Surviving and Succeeding in Senior School Management by Paul Blum Surviving and Succeeding in Senior School Management, Paperback (August 2006)

Explores the aspects of the assistant or deputy head teacher's role. Aimed at existing senior managers, this work gives practical tips on how to organise yourself when the pressure to perform multiple tasks simultaneously is high, such as how to lead and manage major strategic changes, give a rogue pupil an effective telling-off, and more.
