Lost At School: Why Our Kids With Behavioral Challenges Are Falling Through The Cracks And How We Can Help Them (2008)

About book: This is a very interesting read. The idea that a person will behave if they "can" is a different way to look at a situation. Ross Greene boils takes an approach of collaboration with challenging students using what he calls CPS Plan B (empathy, define the problem, invitation). He models for the reader what this process can look at one-on-one with a student, as a whole class, and as a whole school by constructing an ongoing narrative based on the stories of a couple of fictional challenging students. I found myself relating to the voices of the teachers and even saw some of my students listed.I think this is an excellent book for parents and educators to read. It gives concrete steps to try to help a student learn to manage themselves and learn. Such a powerful model for dealing with kids who need our help the most. I am eager to share it with my colleagues. In many ways, Greene's approach is a more formal version of the way I already choose to deal with kids. It's based on premise that kids would succeed if they could, and when they don't they need us to teach them how. Traditional discipline doesn't work. Punishments just make things worse. Greene outlines a Collaborative Problem Solving model that involves kids and adults working together to find mutually acceptable solutions. Highly recommend to all who work with kids.

Informative but he tends to say the same thing as a couple of other of his books I've read
Ale
Very similar to The Explosive Child, with some additional information for the classroom.

Thought-provoking examination regarding why children have behavior issues at school.

Changes your perspective on classroom management and schools, that's for sure.
