    One thought on “Teaching Children to Care: Classroom Management for Ethical and Academic Growth, K-8”

    1. Ever seen that teacher who has developed a classroom community of students that is filled with an eagerness for learning and joy at being at school? Ever wonder how they do that?The book, Teaching children to Care: Classroom Management for Ethical and Academic Growth, K-8, by Ruth Sidney Charney, shows educators how they can do this in their classrooms. In order to build a community, educators need to use positive language and have a clear sense of classroom expectations and routines. Many examp [...]

    2. Looks like Namazzi's teachers are already using many of the techniques from this book. Not sure it's working. Am reading this b/c of an incident that happened at the end of the year with a girl on the fringe who stood up for herself and was turned on by a 5th grade mob while a substitute teacher looked on agog. Namazzi says the sub's lack of authority created a dangerous power vacuum (paraphrasing) - I think as 11 year olds they should be able to see each other as a community already and resolve [...]

    3. Not a book for people who mistake cynicism for insight, wisdom, or profound feeling. (You know who you are, don't you?)If you teach through your heart and would like to become even more effective, then this is the book for you.The Holy Grail to creating a responsive classroom (social and emotional learning). Ruth Charney fills this book with practical theory/philosophy backed by John Dewey & Erik Erikson (et al). She extrapolates the details with many concrete examples.If there's a book avai [...]

    4. I wish this were required reading for all pre-service teachers. I've used Charney's ideas since I began my teaching career in 1999. Her approach is VERY effective. If you're looking for an approach to discipline that is loving, proactive, and student-centered, you've found the right book. She takes the time to teach children how to be kind to teach other. She creates an environment that allows ALL the children to feel cared for and appreciated, and as a result, behavior problems are minimal.

    5. Charney has written the bible of how to build social learning into the curriculum of a school. Her text should be essential reading for any elementary school teacher. Teaching Children to Care is filled with the specifics of how to create structures to help children build the social skills they need to be successful in life. In addition, she uses lots of examples to give the structures a face.

    6. Absolutely wonderful thanks to my friend and colleague, Ula, for recommending I read this. It has been a constant companion by my bed, reminding me before I fall asleep, what it means to be caring, compassionate, and how to achieve this with consistency and love. Now going to buy my own copy to keep with my Gideon's.

    7. I read this for my Classroom Management class and I loved it. I really believe in the Responsive Classroom approach to teaching and learning and this book is one of the foundation books for the theory of Responsive Classroom.

    8. currently re-reading. It's a classroom management textbook but reads so easily. I find it a good way to refocus on teaching. I also have a new inexperienced teaching partner so I want to raise my consciousness and pick out ideas to share with him.

    9. Here's a book every teacher, new or seasoned, should read. It offers a perspective on teaching and managing the classroom that is refreshingly open minded. It shows a democratic classroom in action as students learn to care for each other, their classroom and their learning.

    10. I re-read this every summer to gear up for the new school year. It is fabulous and indispensable. Reminders for new and old teachers on creating a community with children, helping them treat each other kindly and helping them behave appropriately, managing materials, etc.

    11. By far, THE best book on classroom management. But anyone I ever recommended it to, never really liked it as much as I did. It seemed so clearly written and self affirming.

    12. I read this book for my college education class and have been hooked ever since. The ideas are practical for the classroom and make sense. It's just good teaching practice!

    13. A great book on positive discipline and classroom management. I think this book would be especially helpful for upper-elementary teachers, but early primary teachers can learn a lot from it too.

    14. This was another required reading for one of my college courses, but it did not feel like the typical text book. In fact, I enjoyed this book a ton! I use this book as a resource for other classes.

    15. Awesome ideas for classroom management and character education. The ideas in this book really changed how I approached management.
