Structured to support teaching assistants, this pioneering textbook provides an academic underpinning to each of the key topics studied. The book: develops the theoretical knowledge needed to enhance work in the classroom; encourages students to reflect on their own practice; is in an ideal textbook format - full of tasks, questions, summaries and reading lists; and covers both primary and secondary years. Practical, easy-to-read and written specifically for teaching assistants, this book is also applicable for any trainee teachers or students of education.
"This book provides an overview of children's emotional wellbeing. It examines how children communicate and how we, as adults, can respond in such a way as to provide positive messages, to increase their emotional vocabulary and change behaviour. In essence it offers a child-centred approach to managing behaviour through reflective language, among tools and concepts." – Neil Henty, Early Years Educator (EYE)
