Description

Whether students are outgoing or withdrawn, are defiant or inattentive,
have developmental disabilities or suffer from mental illness, connecting with
them is the key to teaching them. This remarkable book shows you how to connect
with students, get to know what makes them tick and discover what makes them
behave and learn the way they do (or don’t). The book’s conversational style is
supported by well-researched information on students with challenges and those
students who challenge a teacher.


Reaching & Teaching Them All shows you how to use body language,
humour, shared experiences and curriculum to engage students, manage the
classroom and support learning.


This practical book argues that reaching students is about making
connections and it offers proven strategies for:



  • making the most of the first meeting,
    creating relevant connections in all curriculum areas and using technology effectively

  • being there when there is trouble at
    school and trouble at home

  • dealing with specific needs of students in
    both integrated and non-integrated classrooms.


This comprehensive approach to improving your students’ learning
environment in your classroom is full of fresh strategies for F–12. New and
experienced teachers will find valuable insights, checklists and tools for
reaching individual students, small groups and a whole class.
