This is a perfect, easy-to-read minibook for teachers looking for new and different ways to calm, defuse, or even prevent behavior problems in the classroom. The simple, application-oriented strategies are grounded in solid research about the connection between the brain, learning, and behavior. Detailed in the book are 16 classroom strategies, each with a sample scenario to be used with one student or an entire class (at any grade level), without major disruption of classroom routines. Included are strategies to enhance brain neuro-physiology, sensory capacity, the classroom environment, as well as the teacher's style to have a positive impact on student behaviors. Using strategies based on brain-based research is a relatively new approach, but every strategy outlined here has been used successfully by countless teachers across the country, whether to de-escalate the anger of one unhappy child or shift a whole classroom from negative to positive energy. If you want students to spend more time learning and less time in the principal's office, this book will prove to be an invaluable resource. If you want your teachers to spend more time on teaching and less time on disciplining students, then this book should be on every teacher’s desk.
“Teachers practical, easy to understand, and extremely useful exercises that have been demonstrated to calm yet energize the body and mind of both young and old. I strongly recommend this book for educators, parents, clinicians or anyone interested in developing health brain functioning.” –Robert E. Longo, author of Paths to Wellness
