Inspiring the Best in Students
Erwin, Jonathan C.
Students' success in school and later in life is highly dependent on their ability to 1) regulate their emotions and control their behavior and 2) get along with their teachers and peers. In this book, the author wants to teach you how to inspire students to learn, behave responsibly, and improve their relationships with themselves, other students, and you. As the author presents new concepts--including the Internal Profile, Total Behavior, and Essential Social Skills, among others--he equips you with lots of games, role-plays, and student-centered activities that address social-emotional learning and character education, promote self-awareness and control, educate the whole child--all leading to improved learning and achievement. Chapters include: (1) Inspiring the Best; (2) A World of Choices; (3) Intrinsic Motivation and the Five Basic Human Needs; (4) The Internal Profile; (5) A World of Perceptions; (6) The Concept of Total Behavior, or Driving Your Behavioral Car; (7) The Process for Positive Change: Creating the Vision, Reflecting, Self-Evaluating, and Planning; (8) Essential Social Skills; and (9) Creating And Sustaining the Inspiration. Word Cluster Assessment is appended. The book also includes: References; Related ASCD Resources: Inspiring the Best in Students; and A Study Guide for Inspiring the Best in Students.
