About This Book
Teaching is as much about students as it is about curriculum, and no one understands this better than middle and high school teachers. But even the most dedicated teacher can sometimes feel defeated by the challenge of reaching distracted, disconnected, and defiant adolescents.
Drawing on her own experience as a high school teacher, Katy Ridnouer shares an approach to classroom management that will help you spend less time “dealing with” your adolescent learners and more time inspiring them to be their best selves in school and beyond.

Vivid, real-life examples and questions for reflection make this a perfect choice for faculty reading groups and any middle or high school teacher looking to create a positive learning community, enhance students’ confidence and interpersonal skills, and rediscover the reward of being a teacher.
