This book offers teachers important insights into the emotional classroom climate necessary for successful and effective learning. Following from the first book, Confident Classroom Leadership, the authors present a range of ideas and understandings to support teachers in proactively building and sustaining an emotionally empowering classroom.
The beliefs and behaviors that underpin and develop positive self-esteem and strong motivation in students are described in an accessible and informative format. This not only invites readers to reflect on their teaching style, it also encourages them to comfortably integrate the strategies and ideas into their existing practice. As you would expect from two highly experienced practitioners, the book is firmly based in the reality of today's busy classrooms.
