Summary "Teachers at all levels of education will find this book practical and inspiring as they read how other educators have engaged with challenges that reveal different dimensions of gratitude and how some have discovered its relevance in gaining greater resilience, improved relationships and increased student engagement. In the first comprehensive text ever written that is solely dedicated to the specific relevance of gratitude to the teaching and learning process, Dr Howells pioneers an approach that accounts for both dilemmas and possibilities of gratitude in the midst of teachers' busy and stressful live. She takes a contemporary and philosophical vies of the notion of gratitude and goes beyond its conceptualization simply from a religious or positive psychology framework. Exploring real situations with teachers, school leaders, students, parents, academics and pre-service teachers - [Title] examines many of the complexities encountered when gratitude is applied in a variety of secular educational environments."--P[4] of cover.
