Editorial Reviews

Review



' ... a comprehensive and informative volume that belongs on the shelf of every teacher or teacher educator concerned with the academic wellbeing of students. In this invaluable resource, Dr. Martin has not only vividly captured the complex dilemmas facing today's learners and teachers, but he has also offered empirically sound recommendations and thoughtful guidance for dealing effectively with those dilemmas......If there is one book that teachers or school administrators read this year, if there is one volume to which they turn for guidance or support, it should be Building Classroom Success.'

Patricia A. Alexander, Professor and Distinguished Scholar-Teacher and Jean Mullan Professor of Literacy, University of Maryland, USA


'There has long been a need for a text aimed at teachers which explores the implications of research on academic self-concepts for classroom practices. Andrew Martin's book meets that need in the authoritative fashion that would be expected from one of the world-leading researchers in the field.'

Andrew Tolmie, Professor of Psychology and Human Development, Institute of Education, University of London, UK


'...up-to-date advice and guidance on how to deal with some of the most difficult and pervasive classroom issues facing teachers and schools today: fear, failure, disengagement, avoidance, pessimism, and helplessness - to name a few ...I highly recommend this excellent volume to teachers, teacher educators, trainee teachers, school executives, parents and education departments.'

Kit-Tai Hau, Chair Professor of Educational Psychology, Chinese University of Hong Kong


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 Despite the fact that the examples in the bookare drawn from early-, middle- and late adolescents, the topic of the book canbe applied to students of all ages, from elementary-school-aged pupils touniversity students. The book can also be used as a self-help guide inovercoming exam fears, avoiding failure and developing personal strategiestowards academic success. Those who work with children, such as teachers,teaching assistants, psychologists would find the book very useful to apply totheir practices.I would also recommend this book to parents who want tounderstand the complexity of their children's fears and who are keen on helpingchildren to view the classroom not as a battlefield, but a world where they canlearn and improve.

Reviewed in the School Librarian journal, vol. 53 no.3 Autumn 2010 (UK) 'Dr Martin has produced here a straightforward and manageable guide to dealing with a myriad of student issues which are all rooted in self doubt and a lack of confidence. The content of Dr Martin's advice is accessible for both new and experienced teachers and delivers an interesting angle on dealing with issues arising in the classroom...'
