Evidence shows that there are an increasing number of young people who have become disillusioned with their life prospects and emotional issues, and who fail to maximise their potential and fall by the wayside. In many of our schools and colleges the emphasis is on change in curriculum options and delivery styles, in an effort to change their mindset from disaffection and complacency. This book will be an asset to staff development as it poses 60 challenges for students which are linked to the three little pigs story. The focus of the challenges is to encourage learners to think “between, above, below, around and beyond the lines” to gain the skills and confidence to promote determination, resilience, desire and resolve to raise performance.
Learners of all ages will gain from the structure of the challenges into nudges, sticking points and -˜thinkantations'. I particularly valued the challenges poised within the Wolf Street Cred, Pig's Kin, Pig Tale, Pigs and Mortar, and Wood you Believe It chapters. This is an excellent resource to promote personal development, confidence and the learners' own responsibility to take up the challenge of raising performance.
