Coat of Many Pockets: Managing Classroom Interactions
The book shows teachers how to replace their customary reactions to difficult behaviour with skilled responses that contain the behaviour while engaging the student. The reader will learn practical social, emotional and cognitive responses to any challenging or confronting behaviour. The writing style is engaging and collegiate.
Engagement, containment and consequences replace 'discipline'. The underlying ethos is that students should be allowed to develop within boundaries that enhance their individuation.
