Keep calm and teach, empowering K-12 learners with positive classroom management routines, Victoria Lentfer

"Developing classroom management skills and techniques that work can be extremely challenging for classroom teachers, especially new teachers. The purpose of this book is to provide educators with proactive strategies that address behavior management with all students, and especially students of poverty, English Language Learners, and at-risk students. The proactive strategies consist of teaching behavior expectations that are primarily addressed within the first month of school and taught through communication models, proactive behavior expectations, and a culture of inclusive practices. Teaching these expectations through modeling and providing student choices empowers students in taking responsibility in self-regulating their behavior. CALM Management stands for Communicate, Assess, Lead, and Motivate. Each portion of CALM is not a stand-alone concept; rather each pillar shares the vision of creating a calm, peaceful classroom for teachers and students to academically achieve at the highest level. Students of poverty are coming to school with academic and social behavior deficits. This book serves as a guide for teachers in high poverty districts that emphasizes defining respect by teaching positive behavior which will enhance relationships so students are able to academically achieve" --, Provided by publisher
