The Quiet Ones



Behaviour expert John Bayley provides practical classroom-management techniques to help two teachers unlock the hidden talents of some exceptionally quiet Year 9 pupils, in this pedagogy resource.

Teachers can sometimes neglect quiet pupils because they don't disrupt the classroom. However, they shouldn't be overlooked and they often need attention to help them fully engage with lessons.

To reach and engage the quieter secondary pupils, John works with geography teacher Sarah DeLooze and history teacher Adam Bishop at Turin Grove School in Salisbury. His challenge is to help them explore ways to encourage the pupils to open up, enjoy learning and participate more fully in lessons.
