Classroom management is traditionally a matter of encouraging good behavior and discouraging bad by doling out rewards and punishments. But studies show that when educators empower students to address and correct misbehavior among themselves, positive results are longer lasting and more wide-reaching. In Better Than Carrots or Sticks, the authors provide a practical blueprint for creating a cooperative and respectful classroom climate in which students and teachers work through behavioral issues together. The authors explain how to establish procedures and expectations for student behavior that encourage the development of positive interpersonal skills; develop a non-confrontational rapport with even the most challenging students; and implement conflict resolution strategies that prioritize relationship-building over finger-pointing and retribution. Rewards and punishments may help to maintain order in the short term, but they're at best superficially effective and at worst counterproductive. This book will prepare teachers at all levels to ensure that their classrooms are welcoming, enriching, and constructive environments built on collective respect and focused on student achievement.
This 15-hour online book study is self-paced for users to complete at their convenience during the time period. Participants must purchase their own copy of Restorative Practices for Positive Classroom Management. An optional one semester hour of Ashland University graduate credit is available for an additional $249.00.
