Bigger, Stephen (2006) Review of Engaging Education: Developing Emotional Literacy, Equity and Co-education. Brian Matthews. (Book Review). Journal of In-Service Education, 32 (4). pp. 551-552. ISSN Print ISSN: 1367-4587 Online ISSN: 1747-5082
The book is only about a fraction of its title Engaging Education. His section on ‘engaging the emotions’ sums this up: whereas the book is largely about engaging the emotions positively, the definition of ‘Engaging’ is more far reaching: “that pupils should be involved in their learning; be active and absorbed and not just passive recipients of a set curriculum. Additionally, they should feel engaged in the processes of education and have some input into creating their own agendas for learning” (p.2). Exploring the full impact of this statement across the curriculum really needs a different book.
