Summary "Positive Teaching, Positive Learning is an ideas book for the classroom with practical suggestions for generating and interpreting positive feedback." "Rob Barnes draws on many years of teaching experience and extensive research to propose six core aspects of positive teaching and learning. These include: learning to understand and re-describe difficulties so that they can be minimised; the ways in which high expectations for classroom feedback can be generated; the use of descriptive praise; and the ways in which both pupils and teachers can avoid unnecessary stress through taking a more realistic yet positive view of their lives. Each of these central ideas defining positive teaching and learning is supported by suggestions for practical strategies which have been used successfully in the classroom." "Teachers, lecturers, educational psychologists and anyone concerned with special needs will find this book useful, inspiring and practical."--BOOK JACKET
