A Fresh and Positive Look at Classroom Management
by Dr. Jane Bluestein
Hundreds of practical ideas for success in any classroom or school. Great gift for a beginning teacher, or anyone wanting to up their game and grow their career.
When it comes to behavior challenges in the classroom, conventional practices and punitive discipline codes often fail to motivate studentsto change their attitudes or behavior. Recognized for defining a nontraditional approach that really works, Dr. Jane Bluestein offers educators ways to prevent discipline problems, build student accountability, and end frustrating power struggles with kids of all ages.
This authoritative, research-based guidebook discusses the impact of stress, brain functioning, learning styles, and social and emotional issues on student behavior. You’ll find examples, guidelines, charts, and anecdotes, along with practical, powerful, and effective ideas to help you:
- Avoid falling into the “rules and punishment” trap
- Establish win-win authority relationships while defusing conflict and opposition
- Build a positive, caring, and emotionally safe learning climate
- Encourage student cooperation, motivation, self-management, and on-task behavior
- Accommodate a wide variety of learning styles and preferences in a brain-friendly atmosphere
- Minimize academic failure and frustration—even with pressure to “get through the content”
- Reduce social conflict and emotional outbursts
- Eliminate defiance, dependence, and disinterest
- Engage even the most defiant, defeated, or resistant learner by using powerful alternative strategies
- Make your classroom (and school) culture much more positive
- Build relationships with parents and other staff members

The Win-Win Classroom will change the way you interact with students and help you build a positive social culture within your school and classroom.
