Summary

Consulting Pupils considers the potential benefits and implications of talking to students about teaching and learning in school, exploring its impact at different levels. Key issues included are:

* the importance of engaging young learners in a focused dialogue about learning
* the role of pupil consultation in helping schools to develop new directions for improvement
* the wider implications of pupil consultation and participation in teaching the principles of citizenship and democracy.

Through examples of pupil consultation initiatives in primary and secondary schools, the authors demonstrate how an agenda for change based on pupils' perspectives on teaching and learning can be used to improve classroom practice.

Part of the What's In It For Schools series aimed at making educational policy issues relevant to practitioners, this book will be a valuable resource for practitioners, students and researchers interested in exploring pupils' perspectives on teaching and learning.
