Description - Michaela: The Power of Culture by Katharine Birbalsingh
Michaela Community School in Brent, London is one of the most talked-about schools in the UK. In this follow-up to the best-selling book Battle Hymn Of The Tiger Teachers, their teachers further explain how their relentlessly high expectations are helping young people to get great results and be successful.Since opening in 2014, Michaela Community School has blazed a trail and defied many of the received notions about what works best in schools. In Michaela: The Battle For Western Education, staff explore some of the things they have learned since the publication of the original book and further develop the ideology that lies beyond the headlines and social media arguments.Chapters include: Don't be squeamish about scripture - why we teach religion at Michaela; Relationships & systems; National Citizenship and Identity; Teaching National History; Digital Detox; Authority; Original Sin & Christian beliefs at Michaela; Telling kids the truth/teaching personal responsibility; Assessment at Michaela; Loving the difficult kids; The baby in the progressive bath water; The culture of feedback at Michaela; Why is teaching gratitude important?; Parenting the Michaela way
