    Consisting of over fifty `recipes', the book's unique format enables teachers and practitioners to quickly and easily access information and advice on dealing with specific behaviours.

  • Some Kids I Taught and What They Taught Me
    Some Kids I Taught and What They Taught Me
    Kate Clanchy has taught in state schools for nearly thirty years. Some Kids I Taught And What They Taught Me is a book about a life's work spent teaching in a national institution. By telling the stories of some of the kids she's taught, some of the teachers she's worked with, and some of the lessons she's learned, Clanchy offers a revelatory picture of school life, and a fascinating look at the role education plays in our society today.

    This is not a work of moaning pessimism or dry sociology, lamenting the actions of successive governments when it comes to policy decisions. While Some Kids acknowledges the undoubtedly difficult situation in many schools, Clanchy writes beautifully about her students as people, whose diversity, humour and sheer brains she aims to celebrate; she writes about the uplifting power of teaching when practised well, about the success she's seen and encouraged in some of the most challenged and challenging pupils she knows, and about the effect all of this had on her, as a teacher, mother and citizen.

    As well as her real-world experience in schools, Clanchy is a prize-winning author of fiction and poetry. This unique combination of talents - her decades in the classroom, her fearlessness and wit, her poet's eye and inimitable voice - allow her to explore serious questions by telling human stories that are sometimes funny sometimes sad, but always moving and deeply sympathetic. Some Kids I Taught And What They Taught Me is a relevant, affecting and agenda-setting book that will really get people talking.

  • Teachers Voyaging in Plurilingual Seas: Young Children Learning Through More Than One Language
    Teachers Voyaging in Plurilingual Seas: Young Children Learning Through More Than One Language
    This book is about young children who learn through more than one language in Aotearoa New Zealand.

    A considerable body of knowledge exists on second language learning but this work charts new territory in its focus on the experience of young children who learn in a home or heritage language other than English. This includes children learning in te reo Maori, as well as children with Pasifika and immigrant community languages.

    A central theme of the book is that early childhood educators can foster and validate the multiple languages children and their families bring, through thoughtful planning, pedagogy and practice.

    The book is based on research done through the Teaching and Learning Research Initiative (TLRI) and draws on the experiences of four very different early childhood education centres. It offers innovative strategies for representing and incorporating the languages and cultural practices of children and their families into the curriculum.

    This book is full of passion and insights that respect the richness and importance of language diversity in Aotearoa New Zealand.
