All teachers come across children who prefer to play, chat, daydream, disturb others or wander around the classroom rather than getting on with their work. Although it may seem fairly trivial and controllable, the research indicates that persistent disengagement of this kind creates stress for teachers, and causes pupils to underachieve. Are We Listening? offers practising and student teachers valuable insight into the dynamics of disengagement in primary classrooms. It describes the results of a study into pupil, teacher and parent perceptions of disengagement that reveals the chasm between how teachers generally interpret and respond to pupil disengagement and the meanings and understandings the pupils and their parents have of the same behaviour. Small wonder that teachers' interventions so often fail to address the issues the pupils consider crucial, undermining their effectiveness and perpetuating cycles of disengagement. But what if we conceptualise disengagement as the 'survival strategies' pupils and teachers use? This would provide a framework for exploring and understanding responses to learning and behaviour in primary classrooms in a positive, constructive way that is grounded in subjective perceptions. It opens the way to the active involvement of pupils and their parents in a genuine partnership with teachers that can enhance their joint understanding of the children's behaviour and enable joint problem solving, planning and decision-making. The models of collaboration described here give pupils, teachers and parents the chance of a fair hearing and establish patterns of learning and behaviour that will help pupils to succeed in their schooling. The book is essential reading for every teacher and manager in primary schools and for the students planning to do so, and their tutors
