Why do so many pupils in Years 7, 8 and 9 'switch off' and make very little progress in the core subjects such as English and mathematics? What can teachers and schools do to improve pupils' attitudes and motivation? Maurice Galton and his team have collected examples from various schools of what works in re-energising demotivated pupils. This book presents practical advice and strategies for improving lower secondary school classrooms, ranging from reducing class size, to innovative induction programmes emphasising the development of core study skills, and developing effective procedures to train pupils to cooperate rather than confront each other during lessons.
Chapters cover:
- Making a Good Start to Secondary Education.
- Creating a Cooperative Classroom Climate
- Improving Communication between Pupils and Teachers
- Why are some classrooms more successful?
- How can school structures influence positive relationships?
The book is a much-needed resource for all secondary teachers, and is particularly useful for year and subject heads.

'This book sets out to address the question of why so many pupils in years 7-9 "switch off" and make insufficient progress in the core subjects. An overall conclusion is that the increased top-down emphasis (in the UK) on careerist motives to learn has had damaging effects; rather, pupils should learn to love learning for its own sake' -
The Teacher Trainer Journal
'I approached this book with the view that it could be suitable for my students on the KS2/3 ITE routes, both undergraduate and post/professional graduate and that, additionally it could spark interest at M level: I wasn't disappointed!...I can strongly recommend it' - ESCalate

'This is a very important book. It should be read by teachers, headteachers and all those with policy responsibilities for curriculum and school development at the secondary level. The Cambridge team are global leaders in research in education. Their findings merit very close scrutiny' - Bob Moon, Professor of Education, The Open University, UK
