The reader comes away with strategies for implementation and the confidence to create win-win classrooms and support students in self-management. -Jo Ann Freiberg, Educational Consultant When it comes to student behavior challenges in the classroom, conventional practices and punitive discipline codes often fail to motivate students to change their attitudes or behavior. Recognized for defining a nontraditional approach that really works, Jane Bluestein offers educators ways to prevent discipline problems, build student accountability, and end frustrating power struggles with kids of all ages. This authoritative, research-based guidebook discusses the impact of stress, brain functioning, learning styles, and social and emotional issues on student behavior. You'll find examples, guidelines, charts, and anecdotes, along with practical, powerful, and effective ideas to help you: o Avoid falling into the rules and punishment trap o Establish win-win authority relationships while defusing conflict and opposition o Build a positive, caring, and emotionally safe learning climate o Encourage student cooperation, motivation, self-management, and on-task behavior o Engage even the most defiant, defeated, or resistant learner by using powerful alternative strategies. The Win-Win Classroom will change the way you interact with students and help you build a positive social culture within your school and classroom.
