Summary: "Teachers want concrete methods born of actual experience from other teachers. This thorough how-to book reveals actionable best practices of classroom management from award-winning teacher Serena Pariser. In it, she shares her growth from a teary-eyed, first-year teacher to Teacher of the Year, Fulbright Scholar, and educational conference presenter. Serena's progressive strategies to connect and inspire students to want to learn, despite language barriers and socioeconomic challenges, have helped students and teachers around the world, including Nepal, Turkey, Hungary, and Botswana. ?Filled with real experiences she's had with students, real scripts she's used to redirect behavior and get the support of parents, real anecdotes, and real conversations she's had with students, this book weaves together research-based strategies that work and step-by-step instructions for implementation. By sharing authentic personal accounts of failures and successes, this book paves the way for readers to become the skilled, confident, and connected teachers their students deserve. Departing from the traditional approach of teaching obedience, this book shares how to empower students, build positive relationships, and create independent and curious learners ready to be successful in school and their career" -- Provided by publisher.
