What's the book about?

Let’s face it—teaching can be stressful. In this generation of Common Core Standards and high-stakes testing, educators are often left without the time to plan positive behavioral supports or the sanity to cultivate compassionate relationships with their students. Even though they understand the critical relationship between behavior and instruction, they’re often left with the same hair-pulling question: "How can I empower—rather than overpower—my students, while still keeping a controlled classroom so that I can teach and students can learn?” The Empower Program delivers user-friendly strategies that are realistic for educators to implement and practical for their students to use. Included are:

  • Classroom Scenarios “When this happens...”

  • Research and Relevancy “Why did that happen...”

  • Concrete Strategies “What can I do?”

  • Ready-to-go Resources “How can I do this tomorrow?”

This book does not antagonize teachers with theoretical concepts in ideal contexts; it respects teachers and their classroom frustrations and provides practical steps that make buzzwords like “behavior management”...well...manageable.
