Educational researchers, management think tanks, motivational gurus and happiness advisers regularly affirm the essence of what former British Prime Minister Harold Wilson once observed:
“The guts of teaching is simple – it is the relationship between a teacher and a group of kids.”
Strategies to make the teacher-student relationship a pathway to success
Go to the heart of effective teaching. Building Interpersonal Relations in the Classroom outlines diverse strategies for making the teacher-student relationship a pathway to success. It works on the premise that strong relationships foster good behaviour, more effort and improved performance in students. This resource will help teachers establish a safe, empowering and productive school environment for their students.
Building Interpersonal Relations in the Classroom outlines teacher behaviours and strategies that create productive and enjoyable interpersonal relations with learners. Good relations foster better behaviour, more effort and improved performance; students respond to teachers they like. Ultimately, the relationship practices outlined in this book will empower students, providing the antidote to helplessness. Moreover, where helplessness breeds discontent, empowerment breeds cooperation. As well as achieving better for themselves, empowered students will be less likely to challenge and confront school authority or each other, and in this way will contribute to a safer school environment.
