  3. Emotional Poverty in All Demographics: How to Reduce Anger, Anxiety, and Violence in the Classroom

    School safety is now a primary concern for educators, who are increasingly frustrated by confrontations over students' disruptive and unproductive behaviours. But information about the emotional sources of this behaviour is lacking, as are tools for managing behaviour. Consequences will always be needed. But we can change the approach. In Emotional Poverty, brain and developmental science change the conversation. Payne discusses what motivates good behaviour and the underlying emotional causes of usage/disruptive behaviour. Developing a culture of caring and support isn't expensive. Every school has the resources to address emotional poverty.

  4. Behavior: The Forgotten Curriculum; An RTI Approach for Nurturing Essential Life Skills

    While state, regional and federal curricula have prioritised academic skill development, behavioural skills - including self-regulation, perseverance, growth mindsets and learning strategies - have fallen by the wayside, lowering student readiness for university, careers and life. In Behavior: The Forgotten Curriculum; An RTI Approach for Nurturing Essential Life Skills, Chris Weber takes a tried-and-tested method of ensuring student achievement and encourages F-12 educational leaders, administrators and teachers to apply this process to essential behavioural skills. As educators discover the benefits from and the necessity of teaching behavioural strategies, they will find themselves prepared to engage all students within their classrooms and help them develop key behavioural skills.

  12. Better Than Carrots or Sticks: Restorative Practices for Positive Classroom Management

    Classroom management is traditionally a matter of encouraging good behaviour and discouraging bad by doling out rewards and punishments. But studies show that when educators empower students to address and correct misbehaviour among themselves, positive results are longer lasting and more wide reaching. Better Than Carrots or Sticks provides a practical blueprint for creating a cooperative and respectful classroom climate in which students and teachers work through behavioural issues together. Rewards and punishments may help to maintain order in the short term, but they're at best superficially effective and at worst counterproductive.
