A School Where I Belong - Creating Transformed And Inclusive South African Schools (Paperback): Dylan Wray, Roy Hellenberg,... A School Where I Belong - Creating Transformed And Inclusive South African Schools (Paperback)

Over the past few years, it has become clear that the path of transformation in schools since 1994 has not led South Africa’s education system to where we had hoped it could be. Through tweets, posts and recent protests in schools, it has become apparent that in former Model-C and private schools, children of colour and those who are ‘different’ don’t feel they belong.

Following the astonishing success of How To Fix South Africa’s Schools, the authors sat down with young people who attended former Model-C and private schools, as well as principals and teachers, to reflect on transformation and belonging in South African schools. These filmed reflections, included on DVD in this book, are honest and insightful.

Drawing on the authors’ experiences in supporting schools over the last twenty years, and the insight of those interviewed, A School Where I Belong outlines six areas where true transformation in South African classrooms and schools can begin.

Over 60 million children of primary-school age, mostly in Africa and Asia, are not in school. More then 250 million are in school but are not experiencing meaningful learning.

In South Africa, school is compulsory for children aged seven to 15, where they are expected to learn core skills – reading, writing and arithmetic – and improve their chances of future employment. But for some, schools are places of persistent failure, of humiliation, of boredom and lack of progress.

Finding Place and Keeping Pace: Exploring meaningful and equitable learning in South African schools is about getting access to and completing a full cycle of good-quality basic education. The contributors span a range of methodologies that include policy analysis, classroom observation and learner assessment, bringing together a rich set of studies that explore a pattern of exclusion from meaningful learning by South African schoolchildren. In particular, they look at schoolchildren who attend school regularly, but are not learning due to inadequate facilities, indifferent teachers and socio-economic factors. They are at risk of either dropping out or leaving school with limited resources.

Within the country, access to schooling remains uneven across and within provinces, and between different communities, with poverty, race and location being major factors. Physical access is just the first hurdle – once through the school gates it is expected that children will be provided with knowledge and values that will allow them to function in the economic and social life of the country. However, this is not the general case – children may be at school but without accessing education.

The authors identify several patterns of exclusion, including different forms of marginalisation, age-inappropriate enrolments, and the fact that school choice, voice and quality remain restricted. They also make policy recommendations, which include improving the quality of teachers and teaching, enhancing parental and community involvement, and clarifying the Language-in-Education policy.

A Headmaster's Story - My Life In Education (Paperback): Bill Schroder A Headmaster's Story - My Life In Education (Paperback)
Bill Schroder
R250 R170 Discovery Miles 1 700 Save R80 (32%) Pre-order

Memoirs of a much-loved teacher and legendary headmaster of Pretoria Boys High.

Bill Schroder is the stuff teaching legends are made of. He was strict, yet kind; firm and consistent, yet creative and playful when needed. He knew the magical mix of discipline and care needed to ensure the loyalty of his students. In this warm-hearted, inspiring and often funny memoir, Schroder looks back on four decades as an English and Latin teacher and, later, headmaster, including 19 years at Pretoria Boys High.

His holistic approach to teaching earned him the respect of both teachers and students. Teaching is not only about conveying knowledge, he believed, but also about looking after the emotional needs of students. For Schroder, the institution was never more important than the individual – he always put his students first. As a headmaster he became known for doing things his own way. He gave students a voice where others wanted to silence them, he found creative ways to turn problem schools around and never allowed departmental admin to get in the way of teaching. In the early 1990s when schools were opened to all races, Pretoria Boys High under him played a leading role in transforming their school. In his retirement he also served as a consultant and a mentor to a school in a Pretoria township.

Here is a teacher who left an indelible mark on thousands of pupils from Cape Town to Pretoria.

Healdtown: Under The Eagle's Wings - The Legacy Of An African Mission School (Paperback): Trevor Webster Healdtown: Under The Eagle's Wings - The Legacy Of An African Mission School (Paperback)

R235 Discovery Miles 2 350 In stock

Education in South Africa owes a great deal to the early missionaries who established schools in association with the mission stations. The difficulties of trying to impose a western style of education on people for whom it was something quite new, were, as can be imagined, enormous. Nonetheless, a few of these schools, after much trial and error, emerged to become institutions with a hard-earned reputation for excellence. Healdtown was one of these.

Begun as a Methodist mission in 1855 during a time of frontier conflict, it became the largest high school in the country where many of the black elite who were to become leaders in the struggle for democracy were educated. Prominent leaders such as Nelson Mandela, Robert Sobukwe and Govan Mbeki are counted among the school’s alumni. Many of South Africa’s current leaders in other fields were also moulded at Healdtown.

The Bantu Education Act of 1953 saw the beginning of a gradual decline in the standards of Healdtown and, sadly, today the infrastructure is in a serious state of decay. The Historic Schools Restoration Project is attempting to restore respect to this once great institution, so that the eagle (the school’s symbol and badge) may fly once more.

Trevor Webster has captured the ethos of a great African mission.

Gerry Brooks is an elementary school principal turned YouTube celebrity, and the creator of YouTube videos such as "First Week of School Stress" (over 1.6 million views and counting). He tells jokes with the kind of mocking--yet folksy and good-natured--humor that gets a laugh from teachers and administrators (yet can be safely shared in school). Served up with a dash of humor and a healthy dose of wisdom, Go See the Principal expands on the author's viral video fame and offers comic relief and inspiration to educators. Ranging from practical topics like social media use in the classroom to parent-teacher conferences to more humorous sections such as "Ways to Spot a Teacher in Public" and "Gift Ideas for Your Teacher's Birthday," Go See the Principal is both the comic relief and practical advice all educators need. Brooks also shares suggestions, ideas, and declarations commonly heard in and around the classroom--as well as illustrations, both from students and inspired by them.

The Wellbeing Toolkit is an invaluable resource for promoting wellbeing among all school staff, thereby improving staff attendance and retention, and helping all teachers fall back in love with teaching. In this thought-provoking book, Andrew Cowley, co-founder of Healthy Toolkit (@HealthyToolkit), draws on his own experiences as a school leader to unpick the myths around wellbeing and set out a practical, authentic and values-driven model that will enable leaders to foster a positive atmosphere for the benefit of the whole-school community. With a focus on developing a culture of positivity, effectively enabling all staff members to take ownership of the wellbeing strategy and supporting and promoting healthy lifestyles, this practical guide also considers scenarios arising from potentially more stressful incidents such as a bereavement. Staff wellbeing needs to be a strategic consideration for all primary and secondary school leaders, not something delivered on an ad hoc basis. Emphasis must be placed on really knowing staff, what motivates them and what may affect their confidence. The Wellbeing Toolkit offers effective strategies for addressing staff wellbeing from a whole-school perspective with particular reference to reducing workload, managing stress and supporting teachers in challenging circumstances.

Making Every Science Lesson Count: Six Principles to Support Great Science Teaching goes in search of answers to the fundamental question that all science teachers must ask: 'What can I do to help my students become the scientists of the future?' Writing in the practical, engaging style of the award-winning Making Every Lesson Count, Shaun Allison returns with an offering of gimmick-free advice that combines the time-honoured wisdom of excellent science teachers with the most useful evidence from cognitive science. The book is underpinned by six pedagogical principles - challenge, explanation, modelling, practice, feedback and questioning - and provides simple, realistic classroom strategies that will help teachers make abstract ideas more concrete and practical demonstrations more meaningful. It also points a sceptical finger at the fashions and myths that have pervaded science teaching over the past decade or so - such as the belief that students can make huge progress in a single lesson and the idea that learning is speedy, linear and logical.Instead, Shaun advocates an approach of artful repetition and consolidation and shows you how to help your students develop their conceptual understanding of science over time. Making Every Science Lesson Count is for new and experienced science teachers alike. It does not pretend to be a magic bullet. It does not claim to have all the answers. Rather the aim of the book is to provide effective strategies designed to help you to bring the six principles to life, with each chapter concluding in a series of questions to inspire reflective thought and help you relate the content to your classroom practice. In an age of educational quick fixes, GCSE reform and ever-moving goalposts, this precise and timely addition to the Making Every Lesson Count series provides practical solutions to perennial problems and inspires a rich, challenging and evidence-informed approach to science teaching. Suitable for science teachers of students aged 11-16 years.

**THE GROUNDBREAKING BESTSELLER AND CLASSIC** 'Excellent . . . amazing how much still comes as a surprise' New York Times Book Review 'Like Capote's In Cold Blood, this tour de force gets below the who and the what of a horrifying incident to lay bare the devastating why' People 'A staggering work of journalism' Washington Post 'The tragedies keep coming. As we reel from the latest horror...' So begins the epilogue, illustrating how Columbine has become the template for nearly two decades of "spectacle murders." It makes the imperative to understand the crime that sparked this flame more urgent than ever. What really happened on April 20th, 1999? The horror left an indelible stamp on the American psyche, but most of what we thought we knew was wrong. It wasn't about jocks, Goths or the Trench Coast Mafia. Dave Cullen was one of the first reporters on the scene, and he spent ten years on this book, the definitive account. With a keen investigative eye and psychological acumen, he draws on mountains of evidence, insight from the world's leading forensic psychologists , and the killers' own words and drawings - several reproduced in a new appendix. Cullen paints raw portraits of two polar opposite killers. They contrast starkly with the flashes of resilience and redemption among the survivors.

The Education Triple Cocktail: System-wide Instructional Reform in South Africa brings together rigorous quantitative and qualitative research on a new approach to improving foundational teaching and learning for primary schoolchildren who are being educated in working-class urban areas and rural communities in resource-constrained systems like South Africa.

At the core is the theory and evidence for a powerful new interlocking and mutually reinforcing change model. Inspired by the AIDS treatment story, the approach brings together structured daily lesson plans, high-quality and appropriate educational materials, and one-on-one instructional coaching to help teachers transform their instructional practices in early grade classrooms and thereby improve learning outcomes.

For education systems defined by low levels of early grade learning and profoundly unequal outcomes, The Education Triple Cocktail offers a theoretically informed, evidence-based way forward.

Developing effective schools which provide relevant, meaning-filled, quality education in South Africa today is a daunting task. Since apartheid was dismantled, the educational environment of many schools is still rife with the structural inequalities and challenges that form part of apartheid's legacy. And in the current South African educational system, enabling policy frameworks only go so far in creating a meaningful school environment. This updated edition of The Learning School offers educators insights, guidelines and a holistic perspective on how to engage with the development of a school, using a psycho-social approach. It emphasises the importance of teachers having a sense of purpose and belonging in education; that teaching and learning can make a difference; and the crucial role teaching and learning can play as a healing force in society. It stresses that real and lasting change in schools can only happen through the passion and commitment of educators over a sustained period of time.
