About the Author:

Review:

"The book provides very direct and practical strategies that will apply to a wide range of students who have been identified as struggling or possible reluctant learners. This book may also have appeal for those who mentor or coach teachers. The inclusion of concrete strategies and the charts that provide the sequence of actions/steps to be taken by the teacher are very appealing."

--Peggy Taylor Presley, Director, Teacher Support Unit, Los Angeles, CA

"Barbara’s book will be an absolute ‘godsend’ to all those teachers and trainers responsible for managing the behavior and learning of pupils. Barbara’s adoption of a ‘humanist’ approach towards teaching and learning is refreshing and will provide excellent guidance to those teachers who want to use these strategies in a more considered and robust fashion with their classes."

--Gererd Dixie, Educational Consultant and Member of the School Centered Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) Leadership Team, England

"I highly recommend this book for educators looking to improve the level of engagement of the students in their classes. Even if you try only one or two of the tips or techniques offered by Dr. Blackburn in this book, your students will benefit and your teaching practice will be positively affected."

--Karen Bloom, MIDDLEWEB
