Use the wisdom of master teachers to establish a positive and productive classroom environment!

Do you want to spend more time teaching and less time disciplining? Do you want to foster resiliency in your students to ensure a kid-successful classroom? Do you want to prevent behavior problems before they start? Many teachers find the work of managing the classroom more challenging than teaching itself. This handbook shows how to create the peaceful and caring environment that makes teaching so enjoyable.

Teach More and Discipline Less takes a common-sense approach to setting up a classroom with standards of respect, understanding, and success. Drawing on the wisdom of master teachers and her own extensive classroom experience, Reider explains how to empower students while establishing an "invisible" authority in the classroom. Using the time-tested ideas, activities, and strategies outlined in this guide, you will be able to:

  • Recognize and address the causes of misbehavior
  • Build rapport and cooperation in the classroom
  • Raise the level of student responsibility
  • Tender clear limits and logical consequences
  • Find alternatives for rewards and punishment

Find the freedom to teach more and discipline less when you create an environment in which students feel secure, happy, and ready to learn!
