Winning Strategies for Classroom Management.
Cummings, Carol
This book offers advice on arranging classrooms, diagnosing student behavior, and responding to students' emotional needs, examining intellectual, emotional, and physical challenges students face and providing strategies which help teachers create communities of learners, design classrooms, diagnose student behavior, and respond to student needs. Chapter 1, "Seeking Self-Discipline," discusses: how discipline relates to standards; how changing classrooms demand better management strategies; similarities between effective parenting styles and effective management styles; and similarities between what skills employers demand and self-management skills taught in an effectively managed classroom. Chapter 2, "Bonding and Connecting," discusses ways to: connect with students; begin meaningful dialogue; communicate during strife; and notice each student. Chapter 3, "Time and Space Matters," discusses how to find more time and how much time to delegate to various activities. Chapter 4, "Learning to Learn," discusses secrets to success (e.g., self-efficacy, time management, study skills, and goal setting) and describes positive self-talk. Chapter 5, "Integrating Self-Management Into the Classroom," uses standards in language arts and social studies to model the alignment process. Chapter 6, "Preventing Misbehavior," describes misbehavior, discusses the presence of threat in the classroom, and notes how to address challenges from today's students. (Contains 72 references.)
