9780938510758: Safe and Effective Secondary School: The Boys Town Model

A highly topical and groundbreaking look at school safety and the power of people to create environments where respect, cooperation, and learning flourish.

Frightened parents and beleaguered administrators are asking themselves, "How do we keep our schools safe for our children?"

Safe and Effective Secondary Schools presents the Boys Town Education Model techniques that have, since 1979, helped thousands of educators promote and maintain positive learning environments while effectively responding to and decreasing problem behavior. These techniques can be applied by teachers or administrators to build healthier school environments and help all students, including those who are quick to anger or who flaunt an indifferent attitude.

Using real-life tales from the classroom, Safe and Effective Secondary Schools illustrates how highly charged situations can be neutralized using people skills and practical teaching methods. These techniques form the foundation of the Education Model and are expanded upon to include useful information on types and levels of aggression, how conflicts excalate, early warning signs of violence, and characteristics of safe schools.
