Proactive Classroom Management, K-8: A Practical Guide to Empower Students and Teachers
Denti, Louis G.
Every teacher dreams of the perfect, well-behaved class, but the reality can be quite different. On those less-than-perfect days, having a system in place helps you and your students stay on track. This gold mine of teacher-developed and -approved strategies goes beyond classroom management theory and gives you ready-to-use tools that not only encourage positive behavior, but also empower students to take responsibility for their behavior. This book is organized into two sections: the first provides general classroom operating principles for maintaining control of the classroom and for helping teachers with day-to-day classroom management; and the second is chock full of teacher-friendly activities to promote an enhanced classroom environment. Excellent for all students, these strategies will help you: (1) Improve your teaching and classroom management skills; (2) Enhance your knowledge base; and (3) Maintain a positive attitude so that you can be proactive rather than reactive. Also included are a quick-glance chart that groups the activities by appropriate grade level and checklists for classroom procedures and routines, teacher classroom management, and self- evaluation. Are you ready to get started? Let these "best of the best" activities lead the way!
