This book contains narrative which explains why students are failing, and information about how to interrupt this destructive pattern. Taking teachers to a new level of excellence, this innovative book demonstrates what to do and say to reach the challenging students a teacher faces. Teachers will find themselves on the pages of this book, recognize their students and, using these ideas, discover effective ways to help them become involved and feel included. By the end of the first year, school can be a joyful, connecting place in which all students will learn and many more will gain competence.
EXCERPTS“In Chapter Ten of Choice Theory, I stressed the importance of redefining education. As long as we keep the present definition, education is acquiring knowledge- a definition obsolete since books became cheap and easily available- we will fail to improve school achievement. Using this definition, there has been no measurable improvement in the last fifty years no matter how we measure school success. We need to move to a new definition, education is using and improving knowledge that is congruent with recent findings on how the brain works and with the information age we have now entered.” — William Glasser, M.D.
