Creating Classrooms Where Teachers Love to Teach and Students Love to Learn Sep 14, 2007
This book should required for every teacher to read. It has great techniques to get students on your side. I keep it on my desk at school as a handbook.
This book gives me a vision of the teacher I can be! Jul 26, 2007
This book gives me a vision of the teacher I can be. It inspires me to reach the most difficult students! It also outlines the SKILLS I need to become that teacher and HOW to reach the most difficult students! It helps me understand that teaching is more than just presenting information, but it is building relationships with students who are sometimes very lost in life and teaching through those interactions as much as through the textbook. Think about it, do you fondly remember the teachers who presented the most information or do you fondly remember the teachers who cared about you, and believed in you? Those that believed in me and cared about me so clearly that I noticed it are in my teacher hall of fame. Those that could care less about me, but taught a lot of valuable stuff, are forgotten and/or despised. I encourage all teachers to read this book and to study love and logic. You will have less anger, hostility and frustration. It will change your career!
Love and Logic Down Under Aug 31, 2006
This is a very readable "How to" book written in a narrative style as it follows the experiences of a small, dedicated group of teachers who are attempting to apply the principles of "Love and Logic" teaching. The key to the success of these methods is in developing and expressing genuine empathy for the students in the teacher's care. The book describes the nine essential skills for the love and logic teacher: 1. Neutralising student arguing 2. Using delayed consequences 3. Using empathy 4. Using the recovery process 5. Developing positive teacher-student relationships 6. Setting limits with enforceable statements 7. Using choices to prevent power struggles 8. Using quick and easy classroom interventions 9. Guiding students to solve their own problems
There are suggestions of ways teachers can learn these skills to implement in the classroom. Having read the book I find myself wanting to go out and apply my learning in the classroom and to share what I have read with others. This review is an attempt to do so.
To me the book's appeal is to that picture of the kind of teacher I would want to be and then offers some suggestions as to how I might move closer to becoming such a teacher. It's worth the read. Not sure whether it's available in Australia but definitely through this site.com
