'Choice Words' by Peter H Johnston is a great read to share with your teachers. Peter was a New Zealand primary teacher who is now professor of education at the University of Albany in the US. This book will help you and your teachers create healthy learning communities. It's an easy and practical read which demonstrates how the things we say (and don't say) have surprising consequences for what children learn. Also recommended is the follow-on book 'Opening Minds'. Both books are practical and give real examples of what teachers can say to shape children's learning and support their intellectual, social and emotional development.
