Cracking the Hard Class

At some point in every teacher's career he/she will encounter the 'hard class' and from day one the countdown to the end of the day, term and year is on in earnest. But as demanding as it may be, a difficult class does not have to dominate and permeate through all waking moments. Bill Rogers, in Cracking the Hard Class, Second Edition, highlights many practical strategies that can be implemented to overcome the hard class syndrome. These include: identifying what makes a class 'hard'; developing a class behaviour plan; developing colleague support; following up on disruptive students; changing patterns of bad behaviour; and assisting relief teachers and the hard class. As well as constructive ideas and strategies, Cracking the Hard Class, Second Edition also highlights the normality of the pressures and stress felt by teachers dealing with these classes.

The Challenging Behaviours Pocketbook

All children are challenging to some extent, but some are more challenging than others. Students with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties (SEBD) can be tough to support and teach. "The Challenging Behaviours Pocketbook" focuses on three particular behaviour disorders: Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) and Conduct Disorder (CD). Making extensive use of cartoons and diagrams to support the text, the book explains why some children are prone to developing a can't learn, won't learn or don't care attitude. The author devotes a chapter each to ADHD, ODD and CD. He illustrates each behaviour type through the characters Liam, Vicky and Darren, identifies typical characteristics and then offers classroom strategies for supporting and managing students with these SEBD. Lesson scenarios with example dialogues demonstrate how different teacher responses can lead to different outcomes and a final chapter suggests a whole-school approach to promoting good behaviour.
