What to do when Tyler calls out for the tenth time in ten minutes? When Kara’s tattling keeps her from making friends? When Malcolm won’t participate in class—ever? In this book, teachers offer first-hand accounts of students like these. In these stories and the running commentary of a child psychologist, you’ll find the practical strategies you need to help these children become more positive members of the classroom. You’ll also be reminded of the qualities that count when it comes to reaching every child: trust your own instincts, be positive and empathic, and patient.
