Roger Wood’s new book reviewed in the International Journal of Children’s Spirituality

The Influence of Teacher-Student Relationships and Feedback on Students’ Engagement with Learning by Roger Wood has been reviewed in the latest issue of the International Journal of Children’s Spirituality by Mark Plater. A positive and thoughtful review, Platerdraws attention to how the book draws together key points that have concerned him and colleagues for some time:


“Wood’s careful study adds to the growing weight of evidence to support the centrality of relationships and relatedness in human growth and flourishing. Those of us who are concerned with children’s spirituality have been arguing this point for decades, hoping to see more emphasis on such matters in education, medicine, parenting, social care and so on. Here then is further evidence to support our cause […] We would do well to take note of this study, and to acknowledge the implications for all of our children, and the many institutions that work with them.”
