$16.00$200.00

“Tough Kids, Tough Classrooms” imparts practical ways to achieve healthy relationships with the most difficult students-relationships that empower teaching and learning. It is based upon 25 years of teaching emotionally disturbed children (K-12) in urban schools, Appalachia, and a reservation, sometimes in groups as large as 35. This book dispels common misconceptions about tough kids and decodes what tough kids say. It presents relational and instructional strategies that reach and teach the toughest kids. Rich with anecdotes and analogies, it provides an engaging, lively read. Katie McKy, the author, is Harvard educated and a former Harvard teaching fellow. She writes for many magazines and has two more books in development. Deemed a “brave and original thinker” by The New Yorker, Tough Kids blends the most current theories about behavior and group dynamics with two and a half decades of frontline experiences. Tough Kids, Tough Classrooms delineates strategies to cultivate compliance from the most resistant students, making your classroom a healthier, happier, and more productive place.CLICK HERE FOR SAMPLES
