Full Description

The Teaching Assistant’s Guide to Effective Interaction by Paula Bosanquet, Julie Radford, Rob Webster

“The Teaching Assistant’s Guide to Effective Interaction” is the definitive resource for teaching assistant-pupil interaction, now in its second edition. This updated edition includes real examples from schools that have successfully implemented the techniques outlined in the first edition. It serves as an invaluable tool for professional development, benefiting both classroom support staff and the teachers they collaborate with.

This practical and accessible guide outlines a role for teaching assistants that centers on fostering students’ independence and ownership of their learning. Each chapter now summarizes key learning points, making it even more user-friendly. Based on a well-tested framework and covering various contexts where teaching assistants operate, the book offers a range of strategies and reflective activities to enhance the support provided to students in everyday educational settings.

Key strategies covered include:

  • Addressing additional needs
  • Understanding the principles of effective classroom communication
  • Skillfully scaffolding students’ learning
  • Implementing intervention programs

“The Teaching Assistant’s Guide to Effective Interaction” is essential reading for teaching assistants and is also valuable for school leaders, Special Educational Needs Coordinators (SENCOs), and teachers in both primary and secondary schools. It provides guidance for improving the deployment of teaching assistants and enhancing their interactions with students.

When used alongside “Maximising the Impact of Teaching Assistants in Primary Schools,” this book forms a comprehensive and unparalleled resource for enhancing the effectiveness of the school workforce.
