Creating a Dynamic Classroom
A Programme to Develop Co-Operative Behaviour for 9 to 14 Year Olds



May 2004 | 146 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
`This is a concise and straightforward resource aimed at developing co-operative behaviour for 9 to 14-year-olds...a timely publication that could be used to complement and extend the DfES SEAL programme' - Division of Educational & Child Psychologists

`Easily accessible, it has excellent resources (enhanced by the inclusion of a CD disc which will print out your worksheets for you) and the activities are highly relevant. One such is 'active listening' – whereby students are taught how to listen using body language, silence, summarizing and re-stating – these are communication skills that we could all benefit from learning, not least those who are seated in the House of Commons debating chamber' - Nurturing Potential

A lack of social and emotional competence can prevent the development of meaningful relationships and can contribute to low self-esteem, aggressiveness and depression. This programme provides a clear structure to assist teachers to develop in student groups:

- open communication and co-operation

- decision-making

- confronting problems effectively

- acceptance of others

- responsibility for ones own learning and behaviour.

This 20-session programme motivates young people to:

- participate actively in learning

- behave more appropriately

- co-operate more effectively.
