Abstract

Many schools think of valuable new ideas and work hard to put them into practice. Unfortunately, the people who are most busy improving their school often have the least time to record and publish their ideas. This article describes how I helped one school to write a book about their improvements and outlines the stages of the work. Improvement involves changing approaches and beliefs, if progress is to be substantial and lasting. The second main theme in this article is the crucial importance of involving the students as partners in improving schools, and it examines theories which promote or prevent student involvement and positive behaviour in schools. The vital need for teachers to be aware of the theories which inform all their work are considered. This article does not attempt to summarise the book, but concentrates on the methods of creating the book and the theories underlying it.
