Discovering your teaching self; humanistic approaches to effective teaching by Richard L Curwin( Book )

8 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 635 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book offers a program of self-improvement for teachers and prospective teachers that grows out of humanistic criteria. The book is a collection of activities designed to increase the reader's potential as a teacher. There is an introduction entitled "Discovering Your Teaching Self." The remaining two sections are devoted to activities. "Awareness of Your Teaching Self," chapter 2, deals with the reader's awareness of himself as a teacher--his ideals, beliefs, attitudes, values, and goals. The activities are internally focused; extensive use is made in this section of fictional logs, such as conversations in which the reader is asked to take part, worksheets, and other assignments which center on discussion of a teacher's role and teacher behavior. The activities in chapter two are designed to help the reader become aware of the teacher he is now and the teacher he would like to become. Chapter 3, "Examining Your Teaching Self," deals with the collection and interpretation of significant data about teaching. These activities are externally focused and are meant to make the reader's classroom behavior congruent with his ideals. Assignments in this section are related to the reader's actual classroom teaching. (Ja)

As tough as necessary : countering violence, aggression, and hostility in our schools by Richard L Curwin( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents a three-dimensional approach to handling hostility in the school that emphasizes methods of prevention, methods of action, and methods of resolution. Chapter 1, "The Problem of Violence," discusses the problem of violence in the schools and society, and considers how violence, aggression, and hostility have affected society and the schools. Chapter 2, "The Importance of Values and Principles," considers changing schools so that they promote, model, value, and teach according to principles and values. It recommends removing violent interventions that promote aggression and hostility and making nonviolent values the center of the entire school operating system. Chapter 3, "Strategies for the Teacher," outlines strategies for teachers to use to help students change their choices about aggressive feelings. These strategies address ways to perceive, treat, and teach students, with a focus on controlling violent student behavior, diffusing potentially violent situations, and teaching alternatives to violence. Chapter 4, "Teaching Students Alternatives to Violence," describes specific ways for students to control aggression and choose nonviolent choices for resolving problems. Chapter 5, "Creating Safe Schools: 25 Options for Increasing Safety," offers specific short-term and long-term steps to make schools safer from violence and provides 25 ways to address immediate safety issues facing schools.

Rediscovering hope : our greatest teaching strategy by Richard L Curwin( Book )

7 editions published between 1992 and 2007 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

All students, even those most at risk, have dreams and hopes about their future. All prefer to be successful at school and feel joy when they learn and master something new. They are reachable at least some of the time, want to be liked and respected by teachers, and deserve the best chance that we can give them. This book offers suggestions on how to reach students, and how to give hope to students who have lost it. It first examines how hope has been lost in the classroom, and then considers how to put it back. Discipline methods that do not work are discussed; and discipline methods that will work, based on effective consequences for breaking rules and student responsibility, are explored, with specific approaches suggested. The place of competition between students and strategies for grading are reviewed. A structure is offered for motivating the hard to motivate, and changes are suggested for school policies and practices. Schools can become, with teacher commitment, the one place in which students in a throw-away society can succeed. Contains 53 references. (Sld)
Discipline with dignity for challenging youth by Allen N Mendler( Book )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2012 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Challenging students can be hard to influence and harder to change. Rules mean little to them, rewards and punishments may have only temporary results, and even consequences that can teach better behavior are often ineffective. This book offers a number of new concepts and strategies that have evolved from the authors' efforts to find better ways to help educators assist their most challenging students. These strategies are based upon five principles: (1) Educators are responsible for teaching all students; (2) educators should view difficult behavior as opportunities to educate for change, reserving leverage for excessively disruptive or dangerous situations; (3) the more students are motivated, the less they need disciplining; (4) discipline is just another form of instruction; and (5) educators should have numerous strategies and lots of heart for success. Strategies and concepts include the difference between effort and achievement, three types of interventions, threat versus challenge, seven goals for successful discipline, strategies for fighting faculty resistance, strategies for fighting student resistance, and strategies for fighting resistance within ourselves. Each strategy is thoroughly explained in context to help educators gain practical understanding. An appendix contains a case study of a school discipline plan. (Contains 63 references.) (Rt)
