You Can't Make Me! Practical, Win-Win Strategies for Defiant, Defeated, and Other At-Risk Students

Increase positivity in the classroom and explore practical, effective strategies for reducing stress and conflict.

Teachers at any grade level can encounter a variety of challenging student behaviors, including defiance, defensiveness, indifference, disrespect, learned helplessness, or entitlement, for example. Rather than focusing on how to react to these behaviors, let's concentrate on how we can prevent them from occurring in the first place. We'll explore practical, effective strategies for reducing stress and conflict--including setting and maintaining boundaries, following through to build accountability, increasing positivity, building trust and mutual respect, and accommodating kids' needs for power within limits that won't make you crazy. We'll also examine practical and effective alternatives to common patterns and traditions that can undermine our authority and success, and leave us feeling frustrated and burned out. Let's remember the good things that drew us to teaching, and put the joy back in our work. These strategies are applicable for working with kids of all ages (including your own) and other adults as well.
