This manual will help teachers create a smooth-running classroom, reduce behavior problems, and improve learning. Based on the very popular book and blog, The Positive Classroom, this workbook includes step-by-step directions and worksheets to make it easy to implement each step in the classroom management process.
The 5 steps include: 1) Teaching Procedures; 2) Building Classroom Community; 3) Teaching School Success Skills; 4) Engaging Learners; and 5) Guiding Children’s Behavior. Also included throughout this workbook are links to websites with videos and resources to put The Positive Classroom Method into practice.
New teachers will appreciate the clear directions, examples, and advice. Experience teachers who are not satisfied with the children’s behaviors will be able to try new strategies for preventing problems and wasted time. The research-based steps in The Positive Classroom Method will bring structure, caring, and joy into the classroom.
