This book gives teachers another option when traditional behavioral and academic plans fail. It presents practical resource that give teachers at all levels positive strategies for dealing effectively with al kinds of individual and group behavior problems and for creating a more collaborative and productive classroom environment in which everyone becomes responsible for their own actions and their own solutions. Step by step, Teaching Toward Solutions shows how to help students begin their own change process by focusing on their successes and abilities rather than on their failures or misbehaviors, or what caused them. This process empowers them to deal with their problems and ultimately gain self-esteem as they take control of their own behavior. Even the most difficult adolescent who is always ready for a confrontation can be tamed using this very unique approach. Much more than just being "positive" this guide will give teachers of all grade levels new words to say and new strategies to use that change behaviors, attitudes, and promote academic success.
