For 200 days a year, six hours a day, while teaching hundreds of outcomes, we face the possibility of behaviour issues and power plays erupting in our classrooms.
And they do.
Power Plays: Moving from Coping to Cooperation in Your Classroom tackles this issue on two fronts: student behaviour and teacher practice. In the first section, authors Barrie Bennett and Peter Smilanich highlight the sometimes subtle and not-so-subtle moves to power your students will make. In the second section, the authors explore instructional practices that can lessen behavioural problems while creating a healthy, caring classroom culture where all students– and teachers– can thrive.
