  3. ASCD Arias Publication: Managing 21st Century Classrooms

    Classroom management may be the hardest part of being a teacher: fraught with power struggles, it often leaves teachers feeling stressed and drained and students feeling mutinous or powerless. Most familiar classroom management practices reflect a dissonance between the rapid pace of change in our culture and the decades-old instruction and management techniques that still form the foundation of our educational system. According to award-winning author and classroom management expert Jane Bluestein, it's long past time for our strategies to catch up to the kids we're teaching. This timely, practical publication, also includes a quick-reference chart contrasting ineffective, destructive approaches with effective, proactive strategies.

  4. ASCD Arias Publication: Handling Student Frustrations

    When students' fears, stresses and frustrations creep into the classroom and disrupt the learning process, how can you respond in a positive way that results in better relationships and higher levels of motivation and achievement? Renate Caine and Carol McClintic draw on their decades of teaching experience and propose the APA method. This approach pulls back the curtain on emotional flare-ups and not only encourages students to recognise emotions in themselves and others but also motivates them to implement proactive solutions - rather than let negative emotions sabotage their academic goals.

  11. Stop the Stress in Schools: Mental health strategies teachers can use to build a kinder, gentler classroom

    Stop the Stress in Schools introduces mental health strategies that lead to a pro-social classroom environment that supports student well-being, security, kindness, motivation and ability to learn effectively. It argues that conflict does not involve large isolated incidents but small daily frustrations that can lead to a dysfunctional classroom climate. The book provides teachers with explicit ways to build healthy relationships and tools for handling problems every day to create classrooms where positive, supportive interactions replace negative ones, such as bullying. Instead of targeting symptoms of stress, this book focuses on social-emotional traits such as awareness, acceptance and ability to manage stress, that are instrumental in helping children experience stress and navigate it.

  12. Moment to Moment: A Positive Approach to Managing Classroom Behavior

    How can teachers deal with difficult behaviour in the classroom? Moment to moment argues that the key is to look beyond the behaviour to what children's actions say about them and their social development. This insightful resource is based on the premise that some children need extra help and patience in developing social skills, and suggest effective ways to assist students in developing these important skills - ranging from the ability to adapt to social environments. This book empowers teachers to help children develop a stronger sense of character and self, to deepen the emotional well-being of the class and equip students with the skills they need to deal with the emotional challenges they meet in school and beyond.
