9781416609568: Meeting Students Where They Live: Motivation in Urban Schools

How can teachers connect with and motivate students to embrace learning? According to Jonathan C. Erwin, the secret lies in forging positive relationships with students by meeting their individual social-emotional needs.

Inspiring the Best in Students includes step-by-step instructions for dozens of classroom activities for grades 3 12 that help build student-teacher relationships while teaching both content and skills. Also included is a thorough overview of William Glasser's Choice Theory and such core teaching and learning concepts as internal control psychology and total behavior.

The more students are given the freedom to make choices in a safe environment while also having fun, the more their enthusiasm for learning deepens. By following the advice in this book, you can ensure that the students in your class will remain engaged and inspired to achieve their best.

From the Inside Flap:

Motivation and hope are two items in short supply in many urban schools. But it doesn't have to be that way, according to Richard L. Curwin. Based on input from teachers across the United States and on his own personal experiences, Curwin offers suggestions that every school can use to keep students in the classroom and looking toward a brighter future.

In Meeting Students Where They Live, Curwin urges teachers and administrators in urban schools to move away from a focus on control, uniformity, lack of tolerance, and ironclad rules toward an approach based on compassion, understanding, tolerance, and safety for all. Each chapter examines problems common to urban schools and offers comprehensive, long-reaching remedies, plus concrete strategies for engaging troubled and hard-to-reach youth.

Meeting Students Where They Live explores ways to

* Welcome all students,

* Build lessons that involve and engage,

* Stay motivated and energized,

* Design assignments that students will actually do, and

* Use evaluation to encourage and build learning rather than defeat it.

Meeting Students Where They Live also includes classroom activity sheets submitted by teachers working in a variety of urban environments--from inner-city schools to a detention center.
