Sue Cowley is the author of a teaching manual with a difference.

She says the key to capturing a class's attention is to surprise them with stunts such as:

  • eating from a can of dog food to teach the power of marketing.
  • ripping up a five pound note to question the value of money. She talks to Jenni about the methods she suggests to keep pupils engaged.
    Getting the Buggers to Behave: Why do students misbehave? What can I do about it and What should I not do about it? (Continuum, ISBN 0-8264-4978-6)
