Training Materials: Think Smart – Staying in School

Think Smart – Staying in School

The Who Cares? Trust

ISBN 1903239133, CD-Rom£9, complete set £16


These four inter-related resources comprise a CD-Rom of the title,
plus an A4 booklet, “Planning to do Well”, a wall chart “Moving
Schools” and a series of cards (32) entitled “Bullying…get it

The interactive CD-Rom is fun to use and includes real stories,
and, along with the other materials, is user friendly. Some of the
bullying scenarios seem a little sanitised, but nevertheless
recognisable. The resources would benefit from some reference to
the education welfare officer and special educational needs in the
“people who can help” section.

These primarily self-help materials are well thought-out and
contain much good advice which is presented in a positive, lively
and reassuring style.
