Teaching Children Who Are Hard to Reach: Relationship-Driven Classroom Practice

Relationship-Driven Classroom Practice

In the age of increasing inclusion, decreasing resources, and economic turmoil, general education teachers find themselves instructing students with a range of emotional and behavioral issues that they as educators have not been equipped to handle.
The good news is that a relationship-driven classroom model offers a much needed alternative to behaviorist methods as the almost exclusive approach in educating alienated youth. In the relationship-driven classroom, the focus is on teaching to change inappropriate behavior; whereas, behaviorists focus on controlling inappropriate behavior. Simply imposing external control does not teach new behaviors. In a relationship-driven classroom, functional behavior is taught via the teacher-child relationship in order to give children experience of the appropriate behaviors they are expected to learn.
This book provides fresh insight into how teachers need to think about teaching and student behavior. It describes the kinds of skills teachers need to develop in order to experience success with troubled children. Educators will not only gain insight into how to create and maintain a relationship-driven classroom, but also, through reflective practice, come to a deeper understanding of how to effectively reach and teach troubled children.

Zitat
"This author has the experience and knowledge to be valid and relevant to classroom teachers. The book's strengths are the experience and knowledge of all the major methodologies tried in education over decades. Just as one begins to pose a question in reference to a method or line of thought, the author brings it to light and answers the thought. The author has done a good job of putting 'method' to relationship teaching and has the real life background references to authenticate what is said."
