Author(s): Michele Elliot
You'd think twice before walking past any book written by Michele Elliott, inspirational founder and director of children's charity, Kidscape. But if she'd distilled her knowledge, experience and expertise on bullying into one of those handy Teachers' Pocketbooks, well you'd be mad not to buy it: Highly supportive of the 'brilliant anti-bullying work' already going on in many schools, Michele is adamant that where bullying is concerned, teachers can make all the difference. This pocketbook is jam-packed with practical ideas for tackling bullying in schools. All tried and tested, these aren't just strategies for teachers and parents when dealing with bullies and their victims, there are also defending, deflecting and defusing strategies for those who suffer at the hands of bullies; awareness-raising ideas for all pupils and inset activities for teachers looking to create a bully-free school. It's an uplifting, energising book that leaves you utterly convinced that the bullies can indeed be 'zapped'.
