To really influence student behavior, teachers need to understand both the reasons for common misbehavior and the actions they should take. This quick-action card deck will enable educators to develop the skills necessary to understand the causes of behavior, manage discipline problems, and increase student motivation. Abstracted from up to 34 actions listed for each of the behaviors addressed in the You Can Handle Them All book, these cards place the correct discipline techniques at teachers' fingertips.
While teachers should still refer to the book for a complete understanding of the behavior and long-term actions, these cards provide a quick reference during class time. Presented in outline form, the card deck:
Lists specific attitudes/actions of the student at school and/or at home.
Identifies the primary cause of each behavior.
Suggests techniques and methods for helping the student adjust his/her behavior.
Reveals the common mistakes teachers often make when trying to correct behaviors.
Cross references other related behaviors.
Examples of student behaviors addressed include:
The Attention Demander
The Class Clown
The Excuse Maker
The Fighter The Know-It-All
The Procrastinator Talks Back
