The Learning Powered School

Price: €29.95 - Pioneering 21st Century Education This book is rooted in the experience of schools and teachers who have seen the promise of Building Learning Power and have taken up the challenge of realigning their classroom practice, their professional development and engagement with parents, sometimes quite radically. Many examples of that trail-blazing experience are described in this book - some as cameos and vignettes, others as extended studies with in-depth discussion. The book also deals with the ideas of learning power, and the science and evidence behind them, which underpin classroom successes. © 2011 Authors: Guy Claxton, Maryl Chambers, Graham Powell & Bill Lucas

This book provides a clear direction for this exciting journey. It is about how teachers can help young people become better learners, in school and out.

Building Learning Power explains what this means and why it is a good idea, and introduces some of the small, do-able things that busy teachers can do to create such a climate. © 2002 Author: Guy Claxton

Towards a Better Future

Price: €20.00 - A Review of the Irish School System [NAPD & IPPN Publication] Towards a Better Future gives a comprehensive overview and analysis of Irish education, covering contemporary early childhood, primary and second level. The IPPN and NAPD considered that the time was ripe for a thorough study and invited a group of educational researchers to undertake this work. In the course of its research the group has consulted with various personnel, but has conducted its work independently of the IPPN and NAPD. What was sought was an objective, evidence-based appraisal of the recent past and current issues in Irish schooling, with a view to the review leading to a better future. © 2017 Authors: John Coolahan, Sheelagh Drudy, Pádraig Hogan, Áine Hyland & Séamus McGuinness Ages: All

Graphic Intelligence Price: €99.95 - Playing with Possibilities This full-colour publication with student examples puts you in the forefront of differentiating instruction and more meaningfully manoeuvring in the world of multiple intelligences. Its purpose is to find better ways that are of interest to students with a focus on thinking and how that connects to how effectively students work with one another. More specifically, this book is about how we think inductively and deductively, why we need to reflect and organise our thoughts, why talk is essential and why all of what was just said is critical for inquiry. That is why we use graphic organisers - to invoke and encourage the process of organising our thinking - and from that, if necessary, to more effectively communicate with others. © 2011 Author: Barrie Bennett Ages: All

Classroom Management Price: €49.95 - A Thinking and Caring Approach

The purpose of this resource book is to involve educators in critical inquiry, personal reflection, and supportive discussion about the concepts underlying cooperative strategies and effective classroom applications. Specifically, the book is designed to: Promote understanding of the elements basic to cooperative learning; Stimulate critical and creative thinking about effective classroom use; Raise and explore implementation issues and options; Encourage supportive interaction among educators experiencing and facilitating cooperative strategies. © 1991 Authors: Barrie Bennett, Carol Rolheiser & Laurie Stevahn

This book was written so that all educators in staff development positions will be able to extend their thinking and skills related to classroom management. Three beliefs of the authors guide the structure of this book: Firstly, they view the teacher as a critical thinker and lifelong learner; secondly, they combine the skills and knowledge of effective teachers and administrators with a digestible amount of theory; and thirdly, they are convinced that effective classroom management is embedded in what is known about classroom and school improvement and the process of educational change. This book focusses on increasing the reader’s understanding of how effective teachers prevent and respond to misbehaviour to create a learning environment that encourages student learning. © 1994 Authors: Barrie Bennett & Peter Smilanich

Each assessment takes up to 15 minutes. Authors: Mary Crumpler & Colin McCarthy

Hodder Group Reading Tests 1-3 (2nd Edition) - HGRT-II The HGRT-II Tests assess pupils' reading comprehension at word, sentence and text levels. They are designed as widerange tests, and thus are especially useful in screening and monitoring mixed-ability groups where some pupils may be much more advanced, or much slower, than the average. The HGRT-II tests 1 to 3 all have parallel forms A and B, for use with the following age groups: Test 1 - ages 5:0 to 9:0 (Infants to 3rd Class); Test 2 - ages 7:0 to 12:0 (2nd to 6th Class); Test 3 - ages 9:5 to 16+ (5th Class - Secondary). Each test takes 30 minutes to administer to whole class or year groups: the parallel forms A and B can be used simultaneously to minimise copying, as well as to assess progress over time. At each level, the tests include questions which assess pupil's understanding of word meanings, culturally neutral sentence-completion questions, and higher-level 'cloze' tasks that require pupils to both comprehend and reflect upon the content and the context of continuous text. The tests have been standardised on over 13,000 UK pupils, giving dependable norms which express performance as standardised scores and reading ages. This revised edition establishes time limits and extended norms which make the HGRT-II tests 2 and 3 ideal for 'access arrangement' assessments at upper primary and secondary levels. The redesigned tests include carefully matched replacements for the original 'proverbs' items, while preserving the tests' quick and easy administration and scoring. This Manual is common to all three tests in the series. © 2007 Authors: Denis Vincent & Mary Crumpler

- A Workbook for Professional Learning Teams Creating a culture of thinking is about more than just using a thinking tool or a graphic organiser with your class. To support students in learning to think, teachers must understand the theory of thinking themselves and be able to model it for their class. Developing a Thinking Classroom provides background information supported by activities for teachers – not students! – to work through. It focuses on changing teachers’ approaches and attitudes so they can change the culture in their classrooms. With the different ways of looking at teaching and learning presented in this book, you can create a culture change in your classroom. © 2005 Author: Clinton Golding

- A Handbook for Educators How can we make a thinking curriculum part of the culture of every classroom? With a greater understanding of brain function and the reality of an ever-changing world, teachers are looking towards a thinking-focused curriculum. Infusing thinking into content delivery, the use of the language of thinking and the explicit teaching of thinking are helping to make a thinking curriculum a constant feature of classroom practice. This handbook addresses the challenge of embedding this methodology both within and across a school. The author outlines a five-step process that will assist schools to implement a whole-school approach to deliver thinking into the curriculum. © 2007 Author: Michael Pohl

The Newell Literacy Programme (NLP)

Price: €240.00

Developed over 20 years by an experienced Irish teacher and facilitator, the NLP is a comprehensive multi-sensory, phonetic, sequential and success-orientated programme to help improve child and adult literacy skills in reading, writing and spelling. It can be used in primary schools with infants to sixth class but is also very suitable for secondary school and adult literacy to support pupils with reading difficulties. There are no graphics, childish or otherwise, in the programme allowing it to be used with all ages and across a wide range of abilities. It is sequential as the learner moves, step by step from simple well learned material to that which is more complex as the pupil masters the necessary language skills. It is linguistic as words and sentences carry meaning. The language is simple to suit pupils with a restricted code of language. It is systematic as materials are organised and taught in a way that is logical and fits the nature of our language. It is cumulative as each step of the way is based on those already learned. It is cognitive as pupils with poor memory skills can think their way through the language problems and understand the reasons about what they are learning. It can be used with individuals, small groups or whole class settings. Books are fully photocopiable and can be purchased separately at a cost of €35 each. The Full Programme consists of: NLP Books 1 to 7, Teacher DVD and a set of optional flash cards.

The Applied Literacy series has been designed to give students the skills they need to write essays, prepare speeches, create pamphlets and more. The models and activities provided will help students develop thinking skills within their subject, and then be able to present them in assessment tasks that require a high level of literacy. The series will help teachers to provide scaffolding, tasks and step by step instructions to those students struggling to understand the concepts and procedures in English. The tasks, both fiction and non-fiction, are all simplified and key words, phrases and structure have been provided. Task sheets may be used alongside real course assessment tasks so that students are given the opportunity to test out the steps on practical assignments. A written task, or one that requires written notes and planning such as a speech, provides the assessor or teacher with the ability to see the depth of a student’s understanding and processing within a particular topic. For some students, who may be used to a more traditional style of rote learning, using the step-by-step guides within this series will enhance their ability to develop ideas, make independent conclusions and learn skills in presenting ideas.

Speak Easy

Introducing English for Speakers of Other Languages

Price: €20.00 Engaging Spoken-Language Activities for New Learners of English This is a collection of activities that help to promote oral language in older learners who are very new to English. Students are taken through games, structured conversations and engaging language activities that they can practice with each other in school and at home. The activities are ordered from easiest to more difficult. The reading level has been deliberately kept simple, with most text being within the first 1000 words vocabulary level. Some material is deliberately repeated in different activities as it is generally considered that new information needs to be repeated at least seven times before it becomes known to EAL learners. © 2015 Author: Ruth Mitchell

Contains both oral and written activities that are designed to provide natural learning experiences for students to develop an ever expanding and rich vocabulary of English words. The structure of this book has been geared to provide the same learning processes used when acquiring a first language. Students are shown that the letters of the alphabet stand for the sounds of spoken language and that a spoken word can be broken up so the separate sounds of the word can be distinctly heard. In a simple, user-friendly way this book takes students from basic oral activities to basic sounds and words and from there on to more complex word understanding. © 2008 Author: Peter Clutterbuck
