Edited by:


January 2009 | 64 pages | Corwin

Demonstrate how teachers can use proven disciplinary ideas and strategies in diverse classrooms!

Based on the third edition of Kay Burke's best-selling book What to Do With the Kid Who . . ., this guide gives staff developers and workshop leaders the tools to facilitate book study groups, seminars, and professional development events that demonstrate how teachers can proactively address common disciplinary issues before they become major problems. Facilitators will be able to show how teachers can establish a caring classroom climate that fosters a spirit of cooperation, respect, and love for learning while encouraging students to interact courteously with their teachers and peers. Participants will discover classroom management tips and RTI strategies, and electronic templates for 20 strategies from the book to address for students who have:

  • Trouble accepting responsibility for their choices and actions
  • Weak interpersonal skills
  • Behavioral problems or special needs
  • A tendency to cause disruptions

The chapter-by-chapter study guide follows the same format as the companion book and features: 

  • Workshop activities 
  • Chapter summaries 
  • "Big ideas" and "essential questions"
  • Suggestions for practical applications
  • Reflections
  • Handouts, overheads, and templates of 20 strategies on a CD-ROM 
  • Sample agendas for half-day, one-day, and two-day workshops
  • A workshop evaluation form

The Facilitator's Guide to What to Do With the Kid Who . . . is ideal for staff developers administrators, or anyone leading professional training for groups of any size—pairs, small workshops, or large seminars.
