Editorial Reviews for this title:
In Tools for Teaching, Dr. Jones describes the skills by which exceptional teachers make the classroom a place of success and enjoyment for both themselves and their students. Tools for Teaching integrates the management of discipline, instruction and motivation into a system that allows you to reduce the stress of teaching by preventing most management headaches. Dr. Jones helps you reduce student disruptions, backtalk, helpless handraising and dawdling while helping you increase responsible behavior, motivation and independent learning. These skills are made accessable by practical, down-to-earth language and many examples and illustrations that provide the next best thing to attending one of Dr. Jones' workshops. The second edition also includes an Overview DVD of Dr. Jones entire program; including how to use the Study Group Acitivity Guide, workshops, and parent videos.

Tools for Teaching is a training program between two covers. It describes the skills of classroom management in practical, down-to-earth terms that makes sense to practicing teachers. It walks you through skill performance so clearly that you can practice with a colleague by reading out loud from the book. Tools for Teaching deals with the entire range of management situations that define the life of a teacher in the classroom - kids who disrupt, kids who sit helplessly with their hands raised, kids who say, "I'm not doing this." More importantly, the book focuses on prevention using lessons learned from highly effective teachers. These "natural' teachers do not work themselves to death. They do not become burned out. Tools for Teaching brings the skills of our most gifted colleagues to light so that they can be understood and mastered by all.

One of the most common questions that I am asked after a workshop is, "Where were you twenty years ago?" Another common question is, "Why don't they teach us this stuff in college?" The skills described in Tools for Teaching are literally the tools of the profession - your job description. The language, illustrations and format make "Tools" easily accessible. And, the heavy paper and sewn binding ensure that the book with hold up to years of hard use.
