Positive strategies to help those who work with children!
by Gerard Gordon
This book will challenge your assumptions about managing challenging behavior in the classroom. It begins by emphasizing, for each teacher, the importance of personal empowerment and positive beliefs, and then outlines a program using specific strategies that:
- Present new ideas for maintaining control in the classroom
- Offer the "Big Toe First" approach to slowly modify behavior
- Provide a unique approach to building trust and rapport with children
- Stress the importance of a rewards system
This is an ideal resource for new or veteran teachers, guidance counselors, and administrators who need a fresh approach to behavior management.
