School Effectiveness
Supporting Student Success Through Emotional Literacy

  • Marilyn Tew - Freelance Consultant, Trainer & Facilitator


November 2007 | 144 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Includes CD-Rom

`This resource was a very valuable tool in helping us to incorporate SEAL lessons into the PSHE curriculum for Years 7 and 8 this year...the activities are set within the context of research into social work and emotional aspects of learning conducted by the author, and, in practice, they work with the students! Feedback from our 7 and 8 students on these lessons was overwhelmingly positive' - Jenny Tinnelly, Henry Floyd Grammar School

Are you looking for a quality programme to help promote emotional literacy in your school?

School Effectiveness provides a complete activity and resource pack for implementing emotional literacy within your school. Filled with strategies, activities, resources, games, lessons and materials, the pack includes:

- A guidebook for teachers, clearly explaining the theory behind emotional literacy and providing practical ideas for the classroom

- A CD Rom containing a colour student workbook, designed to involve every student in the development of emotional literacy

- Lesson notes, games and copiable activity sheets for classroom use, also available on the CD Rom

- A second CD Rom containing the easy-to-install TalkiT software programme, which can be used as a powerful classroom assessment tool to measure and evaluate personal and social development. The CD Rom allows over 30 free trials and uses clear and simple operating instructions throughout.

Success at school is more than academic achievement. Personal and social development is just as important. To create this pack, Marilyn Tew led a fascinating project in British secondary schools to uncover how young people felt about school life, showing that, for most, it was personal and social success that was of primary importance.

This valuable resource pack takes the findings of Marilyn's research and builds them into exciting practical applications to help students develop self-awareness, self control, motivation and the understanding to get along with others. The additional TalkiT software makes it an essential, all-in-one resource for every school.

Marilyn Tew is a visiting fellow of the Graduate School of Education at the University of Bristol. She is experienced in secondary education as a teacher and manager. In addition, she has been a researcher and national trainer in PSHE, groupwork, Circle Time and emotional literacy for the past nine years. Her special interest is groups, particularly the circle, emotional literacy and work with the community to support learning.
