Review

This book supports the new Secondary Curriculum in its efforts to promote Personal Development and links diversity to the Social Emotional Aspects of Learning (SEAL) Framework for secondary schools. It gives teachers starting points, plans and examples to help them use their own ideas to support the progress of young people in the most vital of all areas of learning ... how to cope with and contribute to the world in which they find themselves. --Mick Waters, Director of Curriculum, QCA

Developed and honed in the cut and thrust of real classrooms, it directly supports the SEAL programme by addressing three core areas Emotional Intelligence, Learning to Learn and Values for Life. It s not, though, just a how to book for teachers though that aspect is certainly there. What s especially valuable is the wealth of classroom material that s provided detailed lessons, with resources that children will find interesting and challenging. You ve heard all the rhetoric about emotional intelligence, and the need to create confident learners. Now here s a resource that will help you to do something about it, right now, in your classroom. Gerald Haigh, former Headteacher, writer and consultant for the Times Education Supplement and other educational publications --Gerald Haigh, former Headteacher, writer and consultant for the Times Education Supplement and other educational publications

Jackie Beere has produced a powerful and extensive resource for all of us who want learners to become independent, self-aware, socially skilled and responsible. Surely these qualities are the new, broader standards that the nation is now realising matter over and above examination results. Paul Ginnis, Trainer and bestselling author of The Teacher s Toolkit --Paul Ginnis, Trainer and bestselling author of The Teacher s Toolkit

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical interesting lessons 10 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I teach children with SEN and am adapting this book to make it less wordy for them. The issues it covers will hopefully help them to become more resilient and deal with being a teenager and recognise thier positive learning skills rather than what stops them learning.

So much hard work, experience, skill and dedication has gone into this. I applaud both Jackie and Ian. Some great strategies and techniques.

Unfortunately there is now not only evidence that SEAL makes very little impact but that teaching and promoting self-esteem in the classroom tends of creates narcissistic behaviour. Also developing emotional intelligence too early can cause havoc.

Emotional Intelligence (EI) has a very important place in learning, leadership and inspiration.

The attached video is my interview on BBC radio presenting the anti-SEAL argument. I urge any educators or more importantly parents, before diving into using SEAL, emotional intelligence coaching/techniques to research the academia behind it or read my book Positive Failure - about how there is such a lack of positive failure and struggle (particularly amongst teenagers in the UK). I am happy to answer any questions and can be found on twitter -
