Description

– Engaging Students at Risk Through the Power of Relationships – Foreword by: Robert Jackson.

Research shows that discipline problems are prevalent in public schools and continue to be one of the greatest challenges in education. In Building Bridges, author Don Parker shows educators how to address this issue head-on. He shares an array of evidence-based strategies to build teacher-student relationships and create a welcoming learning environment that fosters student engagement, motivation, and achievement.

Support students at risk by creating a positive school culture and building trust:

  • Consider the student behaviours, characteristics, and experiences that are typically barriers to success in school
  • Learn how and why punitive punishments and zero-tolerance policies have failed to curb poor behaviour in schools or provide adequate interventions for struggling students
  • Understand the importance of teacher-student relationships in teaching students at risk and the ways in which trust and positive relationships improve student behaviour
  • Develop your ability to build positive teacher-student relationships through educational techniques, classroom management strategies, and teaching methods
  • Study the research that supports the many academic and social benefits of positive teacher-student relationships when teaching students at risk
  • Examine the ways in which school culture and climate affect the behaviour of students and classroom engagement
