Calmer classrooms : a guide to working with traumatised children /

by Downey, Laurel | Victoria. Child Safety Commissioner.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Child Safety Commissioner 2007Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: June 2007 Appendicies : p. 31-33Summary: Both research and wisdom show us that regardless of the adversity they face, if a child can develop and maintain a positive attachment to school, and gain an enthusiasm for learning, they will do so much better in their lives. The role of teachers in the lives of traumatised children cannot be underestimated. ; This booklet encourages teachers and other school personnel to forge those attachments through two key mechanisms: understanding traumatised children and developing relationship based skills to help them. ; Teachers who understand the effects of trauma on children's education, who are able to develop teaching practices to help them, and who are able to participate actively and collaboratively in the systems designed to support traumatised children will not only improve their educational outcomes but will assist in their healing and recovery.Availability: (1)

Career moves : expectations and destinations of NSW senior secondary students /

by Marks, Gary | Australian Council for Educational Research | Underwood, Catherine | Rothman, Sheldon.

Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W. NSW Board of Vocational Education and Training 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: September 2011 Bibliography pp. 99-100 Appendix pp. 101-108 SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: The purpose of the project is to examine senior New South Wales students' expected educational and occupational pathways. It specifically analysed the post-school destinations of both Year 12 completers and early school leavers (or school non-completers) in the first year after leaving school and the educational and occupational expectations of students still at school. The expectations of university and vocational post-school study or training among students at school are compared to the expectations of their parents and teachers. Students' expectations are also compared to the actual participation at university and VET of the generally older cohort of school leavers. Students' Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) scores are analysed among students who gained an ATAR score. The report also documents students' expected occupations at age 30. Other aspects of the school-to-work transition analysed in this report include: influences on course selection, early school leaving, plans for further study, course level and field of study among those in post-school study or training, employment, unemployment and the main activities of young people not in full-time work education or work. The report documents many aspects of the school-to-work transition by gender, region, school sector and socioeconomic background. The report is based on data obtained from a representative survey conducted in late 2010 of approximately 6,100 NSW students who were in Years 10, 11 and 12 in 2009. The data also include information from parents (from one in three families) and teachers and principals at the sampled schools.Availability: (1)

How and why has teacher quality changed in Australia ? /

by Leigh, Andrew | Ryan, Chris.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australian National University. Centre for Economic Policy Research 2006Description: PDF.Notes: URL: 'http://econrsss.anu.edu.au/~aleigh/pdf/TrendsTeacherQuality.pdf' Checked: 22/04/2009 2:30:12 PM Status: Live Details: HTTP status 200 - Usual success responseSummary: Research suggests that differences in teacher performance can explain a much of student achievement. Little is known about how the quality of the Australian teaching profession has changed over time. These researchers compare those who have entered the teaching profession in Australia over the past two decades and find that the aptitude of new teachers has fallen considerably and conclude that both the fall in average teacher pay, and the rise in pay differentials in non-teaching occupations are responsible for the decline in the academic aptitude of new teachers over the past two decades.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
