Create a caring, cooperative, welcoming environment in your school where students receive the positive behavioral support they need to succeed. Overcome student disrespect, apathy and aggression. Familiar problems like bullying, cheating, teasing, whining, sleeping in class, fighting, showing up late, and failing to do assignments, frequently disrupt classroom instruction, jeopardize student success, and undermine school cohesion. But it doesn't have to be that way. Use this book to expand your teacher’s toolbox to better meet the emotional and behavioral learning needs of today’s adolescents.
True-to-life stories demonstrate how teachers, administrators and support staff can expand their sphere of influence beyond individual classrooms to all areas of a school. Specific teaching techniques that stop and correct inappropriate behaviors on the spot are explained, as well as methods for building better relationships between Educators and students. The ideas and concepts presented are rooted in the Boys Town Education Model®. The Model has transformed schools across the country with its behavior-management practices, relationship-building techniques, and social skills components. The authors have many years of experience teaching in schools as well as training and consulting on classroom management with teachers and administrators in school districts from across the country. 220 pgs.
"The click between child and adult comes quicker than one thinks. "Safe and Healthy Secondary Schools" explores the importance of a good and safe learning environment in modern public schools and how to attain such a status. Pre-teens and teenagers are hit with a swath of emotions and needs brought on by adulthood and when school adds to their problems, it can lead to a lack of interest in educational and academic endeavors. "Safe and Healthy Secondary Schools" is an excellent read with plenty of useful information, highly recommended." ~The Midwest Book Review, Library Bookwatch, The Education Shelf, James A. Cox, Editor-in-Chief
