Whether you’re a veteran teacher or spending your first year in the classroom, a new ebook may help you handle everyday classroom disrupters and disruptions with ease and skill while not interfering with teaching and learning.
Eight Classroom Disrupters: Getting Them Back on Track looks at eight student behaviors most likely to show up in every classroom across the country. The downloadable pdf file offers tips, suggestions, and tactics to help teachers effectively handle the issues and stay on their teaching tracks.
NEA says classroom management skills are essential for not only doing one’s best, but also ensuring that each student is successful. Eight Classroom Disrupters explores the toughest teaching challenges and offers solutions.
“From the chatterbox and the clown to the refusenik and the time gobbler, the ebook looks at common issues that most teachers have to deal with today,” says Michelle Chovan, NEA senior media specialist. “The ebook provides solutions for teachers from teachers who have faced these issues before.”
Chovan says much of the content is derived from a variety of studies, reports, and well-established practices, repackaged into an online resource that’s easy to use and helpful for teachers.
The ebook also offers ideas, tools, and web links to NEA approved sites to help you get the information you need for your classroom to create great learning opportunities for all your students.
