By Gianna Cassetta, Brook Sawyer
Foreword by Carmen Farina
"We can do better, but expectation alone is not enough. We need answers and examples like the ones Gianna and Brook provide with great insight from research and practice and great compassion for teachers and students. My hope is that this book will become a touchstone for all of us."
—Carmen Fariña, Chancellor of New York City Schools
“Positive, supportive relationships with children help them develop socially and emotionally and help you to effectively manage your classroom,” writes Gianna Cassetta. She shows you an approach to creating that environment that can actually be planned for, taught, and supported from the first day of school—or anytime you want to reset your classroom community.
