>A proven approach for encouraging the love of learning in the classroom>In this book, John Shindler, an expert on classroom management and school climate, describes the innovative technique of Transformative Classroom Management (TCM). He shows K???12 teachers how to improve teaching methods, student behavior, and student achievement by bringing out the positive feelings that naturally exist in the classroom. Shindler offers new strategies for creating a high-functioning class, developing a classroom social contract, dealing with challenging students, promoting a "psychology of success," and creating a climate defined by student responsibility and motivation.
