Author(s): Adrian Schoone
In this book Adrian Schoone presents a vital teaching approach for re-engaging young people who have struggled in conventional secondary schools. Drawing from his arts-based doctoral studies and 14 years leading tutors and students in alternative education settings, Adrian explains how this return to tutor-based pedagogy is a return to more holistic notions of teaching that will benefit all students in 21st century life. His analysis shows the tutor to be both a distinct role and to represent a broader education philosophy to inform teacher practice. In this book, the essences of tutors are described through poem and expanded upon in theoretical discussion to aid reflection and provide practical advice.
