How to be a Brilliant Teacher Paperback
Written by experienced teachers, this inspirational book is for teachers anywhere, teaching at any level.
It will help you to embrace 'positive education'. We begin in earnest by offering two questions for your consideration - First, what do you think parents reply when asked what they want for their own children?
You won't be surprised to learn that their answers are, in priority order, happiness, confidence, a great life, satisfaction, contentment, health and security. And second, what do schools teach? The same parents answer: thinking skills, maths, subjects, literacy and test-taking. There appears to be no overlap at all. We're teaching kids how to be successful in subjects in the hope that they get a good job and achieve some of the qualities that their parents hoped for.
As Martin Seligman says, "Schools pave the boulevard toward adult work". This book goes beyond subjects . We want to encourage you to help pave the boulevard towards flourishing children.
To do so, we ask you simply to consider the concept of positive education.
As it says on the cover, read, do and inspire.
