About the Authors | Comments
When students' fears, stresses, and frustrations creep into the classroom and disrupt the learning process, how can you respond in a positive way that results in better relationships and higher levels of motivation and achievement?
Renate Caine and Carol McClintic draw on their decades of teaching experience to propose the APA method:
This approach pulls back the curtain on emotional flare-ups and not only encourages students to recognize emotions in themselves and others but also motivates them to implement proactive solutions rather than let negative emotions sabotage their academic goals.
Caine and McClintic also include several grade-appropriate classroom scenarios and relevant strategies that will help you create more peaceful, respectful, and productive learning environments.
