The Classroom of Choice:
Giving Students What They Need and Getting What You Want
by Jonathan C. Erwin
If you are a teacher attempting to implement Choice Theory in your
classroom, you are going to love this book. It takes Choice Theory out
of the theoretical realm and gives commonsense practical examples for
implementation in your classroom.
This book is filled with ideas for how to actually put Dr. Glasser's ideas into use in a school setting. Mr. Erwin takes the five basic human needs of Choice Theory and devotes a chapter to each one--giving suggestions for just how to structure one's classroom so that teachers and students alike can each get their needs met in a responsible, productive way.
Mr. Erwin also gives ideas for how to manage disruptive behavior in a way that doesn't involve removing students from the classroom and teaches them the self-discipline skills needed to be successful in all areas of their lives.
I highly recommend this book for teachers, school administrators, school board members, parents or anyone interested in improving the situation in schools and who may be seeking practical advice on just how to make "No Child Left Behind" (NCLB) actually work.
