9781909717343We are delighted to announce the publication of the first book of a very exciting new series exploring the ‘invisible’ areas of the curriculum.

Teaching for Character is the first book in the seven-part Invisible Ink series, in conjunction with INK Education, the CPD company founded by John Catt and author Andrew Hammond.

Andrew is an educational consultant, trainer, conference speaker, former headteacher and author of more than 30 educational titles for major publishers.

His new book argues that character education is an essential tool for creating a positive learning environment and getting the best out of students.

It offers practical advice to help encourage grit, adaptability, optimism, self-control, empathy, discernment and trust in young learners – important foundations in any future success in and out of school. While doing so, it references the Government’s Teachers’ Standards report, and shows how teachers can meet the requirements the expected of them.

The Invisible Ink series aims to shed light on this ‘Invisible Curriculum’ and the secret ingredients that really unlock a child’s potential. It will be followed by Teaching for Creativity in June and Teaching for Curiosity and Teaching for Motivation in the autumn term.

We’ve been thrilled at the early feedback and sales for this title. The foreword is written by Max Coates, senior lecturer in education at the UCL Institute of Eudcation. We extracted the following quote for the cover:

“This book ought to be mandatory reading for all who want to nurture the thinking and learning of children and young people. Andrew, thank you for writing this book – it is beyond being timely.”

Teaching for Character can be ordered from the John Catt Bookshop: http://www.johncattbookshop.com/teaching-for-character
