How to avoid ineffective classroom management practices!
by Dr. Jane Bluestein
You know all those behavior management strategies we learned to use in our teacher ed classes (and many subsequent workshops)? Well guess what! Some of them are actually making things worse!
It’s long past time for our approach to classroom management to catch up to the kids we’re teaching. This easy-to-read book explores common misconceptions about classroom management and how many of our most familiar strategies are actually working against us.
It also offers alternatives to end frustrating and time-consuming power struggles that will change the way you think about power dynamics and what it means to be in charge in a classroom environment. (These strategies will also work at home!)
Bring the joy back to teaching with these simple and highly effective techniques for building cooperation, responsibility, self-management, and academic success in your students, while avoiding the all-too-familiar reactive, punitive, and stress-producing strategies many of us grew up with. There is a better way.
So if you find yourself being bugged by certain behaviors (or kids) and either aren’t getting anywhere with your current approach—or you are making progress but at a pretty high cost to classroom climate and your stress levels—this book will not only tell you why, but also tell you what to do instead.
Managing 21st Century Classrooms:
* identifies seven of the most prevalent classroom management misconceptions
* discusses the tried-but-not-so-true practices that result from them
* offers positive, research-based alternatives that take into account how students learn today
With a wide range of topics covered in a very compact format, this timely, practical publication also includes a quick-reference chart contrasting ineffective, destructive approaches with effective, proactive strategies. Perfect for novice and veteran teachers alike, all grades. A great resource for training classes and study groups, as well as an excellent gift for student teachers and recent graduates!
