Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Disruptive behavior, power struggles, lack of motivation, attention deficit disorder—at times the list of obstacles to teaching seems endless. That’s why thousands of teachers and child-care providers have turned to the solutions in Setting Limits in the Classroom. This fully updated and expanded third edition offers the most up-to-date alternatives to punishment and permissiveness—moving beyond traditional methods that wear you down and get you nowhere.

Topics include:

• Eliminating power struggles and handling disruptions quickly

• Establishing an effective environment for learning

• Using natural and logical consequences to support your rules

• Conducting proactive, focused parent conferences

• New research and techniques for supporting special-needs children

With its new focus on younger students and special tools for handling “strong-willed”

children, this edition offers schoolteachers the tools they need to gain control of their classrooms—respectfully and effectively.
