Superintendents, principals, and teachers all agreed on the following: • The 13 beliefs that all Master Teachers hold in common. • 69 characteristics, in the order of their importance, that a teacher develops in becoming a Master Teacher. • The research also revealed how the characteristics fall into each of the five key domains of teaching: Book #121320 $19.95

Use This

YOU CAN HANDLE THEM ALL

-Step Model from

You Can Handle Them All to Address Behavior Challenges in the

Classroom

The model presents a complete step-by-step approach to changing inappropriate behavior to appropriate behavior.

STEP I: Identify the Behavior Behavior: Specific attitudes and actions of the student at home and/or at school. Pinpointing the students’ observed or expressed behavior is vital because it identifies the exact characteristics of the behavior. It helps teachers and administrators to avoid generalizing and enables them to zero in on the behavior they want to change. It also helps in describing the specific problem behavior to the student, colleague, and parents.

STEP II: Understand the Effects Effects: How the behavior affects teachers, classmates, and parents in the school learning environment and the home family situation. It is important to be able to point out how the behavior actually affects the teacher, classmates, and/or the learning environment in the classroom. Failure to correctly identify the effects of the specific misbehavior robs educators of the vision necessary to see the adjustments needed to get the student to change the behavior.

Step III: Identify the Causes Action: Identifying causes of misbehavior, pinpointing student needs being revealed, and employing specific methods, procedures, and techniques for getting the student to modify or change his or her behavior. In this step consideration is given to the primary cause of the misbehavior, primary and secondary needs being revealed, and specific suggestions for handling misbehavior.

Step IV: Avoid Mistakes Mistakes: Common misjudgments and errors in managing the student which may perpetuate or intensify the problem. Often our solution to misbehavior is to react to the behavior personally rather than approach the problem professionally. The purpose of this step is to help teachers avoid mistakes commonly made in dealing with certain types of behavior because of how the behavior makes them feel.

BULLYING PREVENTION

You Can Handle Them All:

Bullying and Cyberbullying Special Edition By Robert L. DeBruyn and Tracey H. DeBruyn

This special edition of the You Can Handle Them All book is a systematic, easy-to-use guide for educators to help them define and successfully handle 27 different bullying and cyberbullying behaviors. Since bullies don’t conform to a single profile or harass targets in the same way, this model is designed to help educators address a spectrum of bullying behaviors—both traditional and online. By working from the same foundation, members of a school team can ask, what kind of bully are we facing? Then they can apply specific solutions to deal with the aggressive behavior. It is important to know how the bully and his or her targets are situated in the social fabric of school life. Otherwise we may focus exclusively on obvious cliques, while lesser-known individuals or groups perpetuate harmful behavior. This book: • Identifies the primary causes and motives of each behavior so that it can be handled correctly. • Tells how each behavior affects teachers, students, and the learning environment. • Offers a number of strategies for handling each bullying behavior. • Reveals common mistakes to avoid when trying to correct each behavior. • Cross-references other related behaviors.

#171030 $15.95 ISBN: 978-1-58992-467-3

THE

MASTER TEACHER’S Assessment Handbook

Assessment is both an art and a science. No teacher wants to waste valuable time teaching what students already know, nor do we want to move on when students haven’t yet mastered what we need them to learn. Assessing at the wrong time, when engagement is high but mastery hasn’t occurred, can halt discovery and curiosity in its tracks. Further, giving grades too early can keep skilled learners from reaching for more and other learners from feeling that success is within their reach. That’s why this book can be such a valuable resource. Teachers will receive the most important foundations to conduct fair and effective assessments. They will receive multiple insights and strategies concerning the best ways to assess in multiple circumstances. And they will learn the best strategies for testing, grading, and giving feedback, as well as how to teach students to be better at self-assessing their own progress.
