School transition is a life changing event for children - they are rarely faced with such a powerful set of personal and social changes. These underpin the immediate and longer term wellbeing of children, peer groups, teachers and schools. Understanding School Transition provides a most comprehensive, international review of this important area, complete with practical advice on what practitioners can do to support children’s wellbeing, motivation and achievement. Offering an accessible introduction to children’s psychology at transition, Understanding School Transition explores transition as a status passage, what we really mean by wellbeing, and the ways in which children adapt to new environments. Key chapters focus on: Understanding stress and anxiety Children’s hopes, fears and myths at transition Parents’ and teachers’ influence and role Children’s relationships with peers as they change schools Children’s personal and collective identities Motivation, engagement and achievement Supporting the most vulnerable children Crucially, it advises how you can help children through implementing transition interventions and evaluating their success in your own school. Illustrated by case studies of experiences in real schools, Understanding School Transition will be essential reading for all training and practising teachers, as well as transition and subject specialists, who want to better understand and influence what happens to children at this critical stage.

The transition students make when they move from elementary to a middle school settings is shown in current research to result in social development challenges and a decrease in academic performance on standardized tests. Private independent schools represent a group of schools that have not been included in current research on the transition to middle school. This study surveyed directors of private independent schools to gain an understanding of the types of challenges these schools face, and the types of programs these schools employ to assist students to make the transition. Three schools were then selected for site visits. These site visits consisted of interviews with school directors, focus group interviews with teachers of transitional students, and focus group interviews with parents of transitional students. The findings of this study confirmed that private independent schools face many of the same challenges enumerated in current research literature, but also face challenges that reflect their individual and independent nature. The findings also confirmed these schools employ a variety of creative programs which are perceived to be effective by directors, teachers, and parents. This study concludes that more systematic transitional planning must occur in these private independent schools, and more formalized feedback loops must be established. Recruiting and retaining high quality faculty members to facilitate smooth transitions is an ongoing challenge for private independent schools.

Transitions from School to Work

Transitions from School to Work

This volume makes an important contribution to the growing literature on the transition from school to work.

This volume makes an important contribution to the growing literature on the transition from school to work. It provides a unique perspective on the global changes that have transformed school-to-work transitions since the 1970s; offers an integrative conceptual framework for analysis; and promotes a comparative, cross-national understanding of school-to-work transitions in a changing social context. The articles assembled in this volume compare and assess variations in school-to-work transitions across Europe and North America, providing empirical evidence on how young people negotiate the different options and opportunities available and assessing the costs and returns associated with different transition strategies. Unlike many other volumes on this subject - which are pitched at either the macro or micro level - this volume attempts to integrate both perspectives, capturing the complexity of this critical life course transition. Furthermore, the authors address policies aimed at improving the capacity of individuals to make effective transitions and at enabling societies to better coordinate educational and occupational institutions.

Despite variations of educational systems, when transitions in education occur, the pedagogical challenges that teachers and pupils undergo are quite similar across the globe. Transitions are phases in which pupils, peer groups and teachers have to renegotiate and rebuild their learning environment in the educational context. These various transitions in students' learning paths significantly impact on schools' everyday life. This volume explores transitions at all stages of educational progression, i.e., nursery to primary, primary to secondary, and secondary to post-school. It also examines these transitions across a variety of countries and types of schools. Educational Transitions provides up-to-date literature, research and theoretical constructs that help readers understand the issues, social-emotional-psychological dimensions, and evidence-based possible interventions to support an individual through these educational transitions. It also allows scholars, teachers, and students to critically analyse how lessons learned from one country can be adapted for other countries' educational systems.

There are many transitions that children experience before they are five, including the first major transition from home to an early years setting. Successive changes can have a serious impact on young children and stress, separation and insecure attachments can affect not only a child’s emotional health but also cognitive and intellectual development. Understanding Transitions in the Early Years explains why transitions matter and provides practical guidance on how to support young children’s developing emotional resilience and equip them to embrace change in the future. Aimed at practitioners and students, the book: draws together evidence from neuroscience, attachment theory, child development and childcare practices provides a context for practitioners to empathise with children and families as they relate to their own understanding of the impact of change and transition looks at ways to reduce the number of transitions including the key person approach offers guidance and practical strategies for practitioners, managers and head teachers for supporting children through transitions. Including case studies, examples of good practice and questions for reflection this thought-provoking text emphasises the little things that practitioners can do for the individual children in their care to help them feel secure and confident when dealing with change.

School personnel, parents and high school students with disabilities will all benefit from this new and expanded (6-page) laminated guide by Elizabeth Hamblet. It offers detailed suggestions of ways students with disabilities, with the help of parents and teachers/school staff, can start preparing for the transition to college as early as freshman year of high school. Transitioning to College lists five key areas of preparedness, as identified by researchers. These include: understanding laws that govern how colleges address students with disabilities; understanding the differences between college and high school environments; being aware of college disability services and how to access them; having proper academic preparation for the demands of college work; having the knowledge and self-confidence to advocate for oneself. It also highlights critical elements of three federal laws in which students with disabilities, as well as their families and educators, should be well versed. Referencing the “4 Rs” of college disability services, the author provides an overview of Students’ Rights, Reasonable Accommodations, Responsibilities, Reality. The issue of disability documentation is also covered in significant detail, as are several others.
