Teaching Respect: A School- and Community-Based Approach to Improving the Social and Educational Climate. Can Experiences in Canada Have Implications for Practice in England?
Dean, Sandra; Galloway, David
Emotional & Behavioural Difficulties, v13 n3 p217-228 Sep 2008
This article asks whether a project in Canada could have any implications for schools in England. It is concerned with the ultimate challenge for teachers: not just how to create positive, healthy relationships with excellent educational progress in a "failing" school where they are conspicuously lacking, but how to do so in a lasting, sustainable way. The first part of the article summarises the evidence that South Simcoe School in Ontario became a highly successful school. Next we describe key features in the processes of behaviour change and school improvement. Finally, we discuss some possible implications for policy and practice in England.
