About this product
- DescriptionFun and discipline sound like an oxymoron especially when applied to junior high school classroom management. However, The RAP Attack is just that; it s a method of classroom management that is fun, interesting, professional and effective. This book will instruct young teachers to conduct their class like an orchestra vigilantly watching, listening and changing various aspects of their class to act in harmony together-all the while having a lot of fun along the way.
Although The RAP Attack does provide a complete system of discipline, it is t about any one disciplinary tool or method; it s about many factors working seamlessly with each other on a daily basis. Classroom management is the smile on a teacher s face; it s the greeting of students as they enter your classroom; it s the thank you card sent to a student in thanks for a Christmas gift; it s the positive comment on a student s paper; it s the seating chart; it s the showing of honest compassion to students who are hurting inside; it s how a teacher decorates his or her walls, how they make their classroom inclusive, warm, earthy and inviting; it s about fragrance and charisma; it s about preparation and professional instruction; it s about humility and relevance. All of this and more is found in The RAP Attack.
WARNING: this book is t appropriate for those who wish to spend thirty years in junior high classroom yelling, screaming and demanding student acquiescence. This book is appropriate for those with a sense of humor, compassion and a genuine love of teaching and molding young minds. In short, this is a book for those wanting to teach and manage their classroom from the heart.
