Helping Students Fix Problems and Avoid Crises: An Easy-to-Use Intervention Resource for Grades 1-4
Greene, Lawrence J.
For every teacher who has been at a loss to help the student who seemed helpless, this is a resource that cannot be missed. In this book, the author details instructional principles to help educators model and mentor effective life skills behaviors for their students. For the child who doesn't have friends, does poorly in sports, has difficulty learning, or who steals, lies, or bullies, the author provides solid, proven methods to help these learners discover and practice better life skills. "Helping Students Fix Problems and Avoid Crises" includes: (1) Insightful stories for teachers and students illustrating each problem; (2) Practical activities and exercises illustrating techniques to help students address each problem; (3) Supplemental reproducible exercises; and (4) Encouraging follow-up and application exercises. The author divides each problematic issue into two sections: for educators, he looks at the dynamics and implications of each problem, and for students, he provides classroom scripts and exercises to bring their own awareness to their problems. This essential classroom resource also includes illuminating ten-minute read-aloud stories, strategic thinking questions, optional activities, and reproducible exercises! After an introduction, this book is divided into six units: (1) The Child Who Doesn't Have Friends; (2) The Child Who Has Difficulty Learning; (3) The Child Who Steals; (4) The Child Who Tells Lies; (5) The Child Who Is a Bully; and (6) The Child Who Does Poorly in Sports. Appended are: (1) Psychological Overlay and Learning Differences; and (2) Psychological Problems. An index is also included.
