Section One: Becoming an Effective Classroom Manager

Lee Canter Solution Tree Press ePub

You can establish a classroom environment in which you teach and students learn free from the distraction of disruptive student behavior!

How can I make such a bold statement not knowing you or your students?

Over the last thirty years, my staff and I have worked with more than one million teachers at all grade levels and from all types of socioeconomic backgrounds, and we have learned firsthand that any motivated teacher can develop the skills and confidence needed to teach his or her students how to behave.

If you are ready to join this enormous contingent of educators who have learned to successfully manage their students’ behavior, then please continue reading.

If you are reading this book, you are either struggling with managing student behavior or concerned that you will soon be facing this issue.

Trust me, you are not alone.

Seventy-seven percent of teachers admit that their teaching would be more effective if they did not have to spend so much time dealing with disruptive students (Public Agenda, 2004).

Process Selection

2.1 INTRODUCTION

The long-time business success of any project greatly depends upon the selection of an appropriate sustainable process or technology. The routine financial calculations, such as return on investment, payback period, internal rate of return, and so on, are not adequate indices of success of any project that is being conceived. For instance, a project to manufacture ethyl tertiary butyl ether (ETBE) as an octane booster may be financially lucrative but its success over its lifespan will depend primarily upon availability of ethyl alcohol and isobutylene, as raw materials.

After having decided to go ahead with the project implementation based on preliminary feasibility report, a dilemma of selecting the most suitable process or technology arises. There may be more than one route available to manufacture the product under consideration. Also, after having selected the route, there may be more than one process licensor available for know-how.

114—Leadership in Action

TRC Interactive HRD Press, Inc. PDF

Preparation

• Make copies of the Instructions and Common Problems sheet for each

participant. You will also need observer forms for the problem situations selected by the participants. Please note that there are different forms for specific problems.

• Make one copy of the five Problem Description sheets (A, B, C, D, and E), cut

them apart, and hand them out after problem situations are chosen from the list.

• Provide pencils for participants.

• Have a whiteboard or flipchart and markers to process the exercise.

• Have a stapler and paper handy in case the training problem is chosen.

• The room should be flexible to accommodate a role play easily viewed by other

participants. You will need a desk or table and two chairs for the role play.

Process

• Distribute the Instructions and Common Problems sheet to participants. Ask

them to read the material and select one problem they would like to see role played.

• List the problem choices on the whiteboard or flipchart. You can do this by

going around the room and asking which problem each person has selected. For a group of more than 20 people, do a random selection and vote on the choice.

Lamps, Oils, and Lenses

Caldwell, Bill Down East Books ePub

Lighthouses were moneymakers—not for the sailors or the keepers—but for the contractors who built them, the inventors who patented lenses and lamps, and the oil dealers who won a government contract to supply the illuminating oil.

Winslow Lewis, for one, did well by lighthouses, and they did well by Winslow Lewis. Lewis is an important man in the story of our lighthouses. He was born in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, in 1770, the year of the Boston Massacre by British redcoats. As a young man, he went seafaring and stayed long enough to learn firsthand the need for lighthouses and the urgent need for better equipment in them. On his voyages, he began designing ways to make the light shine brighter and farther to ships at sea. So in 1810, at the age of forty, he swallowed the anchor and came ashore. This was the year he got a patent for the Lewis reflector and magnifying lens to use with lighthouse lanterns. In 1811, he installed his first reflector lantern in the Boston Light.

This was an ideal showcase for Lewis’s invention. He had plenty of personal influence around Boston Harbor because he had become commander of a group of mariners there called the Boston Sea-Fencibles, who had organized to defend the inshore islands, Boston Harbor, and the city’s waterfront in the War of 1812.

DAY 1: SAFER AT SEA

In the dark, in the wet, whirling roar of Hurricane Sandy, on a ship tipping so badly the deck felt like a steep, slick roof, the desperate, damaged sailor searched for a spot from which to jump. Close to the stern, he gripped the helm, now all but touching the water’s high black churn. He let go and paddled and kicked in the buoyant but clumsy blood-orange suit he had wiggled into not long before. The ship spat up a heavy wooden grating, and it landed on his head. Crack. His adrenaline surged. He thrashed, straining to get away from the heaving ship, her three masts of tree trunk heft rearing up and slamming down like lethal mallets, her thinner, sharper spars piercing the surface like darts, the ropes of the rigging like tentacles, grabbing, yanking. Pfffffft. The tip of a spar sliced down, catching the sailor, pushing him below. He gasped, choking on water, struggling back to where there was air.

1. The Trail of Inspiration

Frock, Roger Berrett-Koehler Publishers ePub

9

FedEx originated the modern integrated priority package express industry, the first small-package airline to maintain direct control of shipments with a self-contained transportation system from pickup to delivery. Millions of people rely on FedEx every day for their most important business and personal deliveries whenever and wherever they must have overnight and time-definite service. The delivery service is so much a part of our lives that we can barely recall living without it.

It seems that FedEx has always been there, ready to respond to our most urgent needs, yet few people know how it was first conceived. When its efficient hub-and-spokes network was originally proposed, the concept was ridiculed as impractical. Existing regulations prohibited this form of nationwide delivery service, experts considered it a financial impossibility, and airline executives forecast its demise.

To understand the mountainous road to success, we must look back more than 40 years to glimpse the early dreams that inspired and motivated Frederick Wallace Smith, the Mississippi-born founder of the company.

28 February 1960

Wilfred R. Bion Karnac Books ePub

The scientist's mistrust of human intellectual effort tends to make him look longingly at the machine that can so often be made to appear the ideal recording instrument, a matter of rigid scales, pointers, unchanging weights, and so on. This attitude, which has something to commend it, yields matter for speculation if one considers it as betraying suspicion of anything that possesses life. How are we to find the truth, to gain knowledge, if facts can be recorded only by an object incapable of judgement or anything we regard as thought on the one hand, and on the other if thought is possible only by an object incapable of recording facts?

The difficulty may not be real in any significant way, but seems so because the method of formulation, in terms of knowledge, truth, and reality, leads to fallacious exaggeration of some elements of the problem, to the exclusion of others. Progress is less impeded if we consider ‘know’ to refer to a relationship, and reality and truth to refer to qualities of mental phenomena necessary to sustain mental health.

CHAPTER TWENTY-ONE: What is taboo and not taboo in psychoanalysis?

Karnac Books ePub

Rebecca C. Curtis

To understand what is taboo in psychoanalysis, we first need to have some agreement about what psychoanalysis itself is. For many clinicians and theorists alike, ideas about psychoanalysis have changed considerably in the past fifty years. In 1954, in a panel on the similarities and differences between psychoanalysis and dynamic psychotherapy, Fromm-Reichmann stated that the bases of psychoanalysis remained the doctrine of the importance of unconscious processes, the concepts of transference and resistance, and the significance of the childhood history. She added the significance of anxiety for the dynamics underlying personality. Psychoanalysts today probably agree with the major bases she described. There are, however, certain techniques and styles of conducting psychoanalysis that would, if used predominantly, render a treatment to be considered “non-psychoanalytic” by most in the field. Grotstein alluded briefly to such techniques as cognitive therapy, behaviour modification, guided imagery, psychodrama, and psychopharmacology in his chapter. Eagle dealt with the over-dependency upon transference interpretations in psychoanalysis. The issue of the reliance upon the interpretation-insight model is one that psychoanalysts must grapple with more fully as the modelof therapeutic action changes to one emphasizing new experiences. Most of the topics chosen by the contributors as potentially taboo, however, are concerned more with rules and traditions passed down by practitioners than with the differentiation of psychoanalysis from other forms of therapeutic treatment.

Controversies on different approaches in psychoanalytic research on early development and ADHD

Marianne Leuzinger-Bohleber, Jorge Canestri
and Mary Target

1 Introductory remarks

Surprisingly, psychoanalysts have only during the past few years actively engaged in the on-going and very important controversial discussions on attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) (for example, the casebook on learning disabilities by Rothstein and Glenn, 1999; the special volume of Psychoanalytic Inquiry, 2002; and the panel on ADHD and trauma at the IPA Congress in Rio 2005 reported by Sugarman, 2006 and at the IPA Congress in Chicago, 2009, summarized by Sugarman, 2010).1 Carney (2002: 301) writes in his prologue to this volume: ‘Not so long ago, some practitioners both inside and outside psychoanalysis discouraged the use of psychodynamic treatment for patients with AD/HD.’ Salomonsson (2004: 132) agrees, writing: ‘Psychoanalysis is an often-neglected treatment method for children with neuropsychiatric disorders.’

Six Professional Development

Eric C. Sheninger Solution Tree Press ePub

SIX

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

For standards-based reform to work in science teaching and learning, teacher professional development needs to be sustainable, comprehensive, collaborative, and inquiry based. If possible, it should be embedded into the instructional day. It also needs to include a review of science concepts, particularly in the area of STEM, as well as methods to guide and assess student learning. Furthermore, it needs to address teachers’ fears and concerns about finding time to teach science and about their knowledge of the subject matter.

A main goal of professional development in science education is to strengthen teachers’ ability to design and teach effective, hands-on, inquiry-based lessons and create assessments that are authentic and multilayered. Since many teachers have never been exposed to scientific inquiry experiences, having them participate as learners in inquiry-based science provides them with the opportunity to understand learning from this perspective. In addition, the experience provides them with the opportunity to analyze their feelings as learners, discuss challenges from a teacher’s perspective, and increase their subject-matter knowledge. When modeling science teaching during staff development sessions, facilitators must continually pose the questions: What are we doing as teachers? Why?

3 Managing Financial Processes

R. Jennifer Cavalieri Sigma Theta Tau International ePub

Identifying and managing the financial aspects of a clinical trial is valuable regardless of whether an investigator is developing a study funded by the investigator’s “own time and dime,” negotiating with an industrial sponsor, or developing a budget for a research proposal to a federal agency. There are so many variables involved with budgets and payments that many investigators may just take a “best-guess” approach and deal with the consequences.

This chapter provides strategies for evaluating whether doing a study is feasible, tips on the contract process and the contract language, and examples of user-friendly research accounting tools for new investigators or finance administrators who are new to research. You will also find examples of how to gain a better understanding of site expenses and ways to leverage site resources. While there are no “one-size-fits all” approaches or processes, the real-world examples provided can help you understand the variables and customize a process for more control of research finances for your research site.

Money worries

Young, Courtenay Karnac Books ePub

Money worries are affecting more and more people. These are usually created by redundancy, sickness, or relationship difficulties: i.e., circumstances outside of your control. Debt levels for individuals (mortgages, credit cards, bank loans, etc.) are at an all time high—more than 1 trillion now! More and more families have to have both parents working in order to get by. More and more people are paying off mortgages later, taking mortgage “holidays”, having interest-only mortgages, or even having their houses repossessed. In 2008), we were faced with the “credit crunch” and also substantively increased prices at the supermarket and petrol pump. These have put increasing pressures on the family purse, and what was affordable and within budget is often now not so. We are going to have to “down-size” our spending and our expectations.

The extreme anxiety generated by such financial issues, and when people feel out of control of their finances, is now being called “money sickness syndrome” (MSS). This refers to a group of symptoms of extreme anxiety generated by people feeling that they have lost control of their personal finances, or that they cannot see any way out of a debt situation. This could affect as much as 43% of people (AXA survey); nearly four million people admit that money worries have caused them actually to take time off work; more than ten million people admit that money worries have affected their relationships; and one person in five (20%) says that money worries have affected their sex life. With the availability of all-too-easy credit cards, and average personal debt (excluding mortgages) now exceeding 4,000, MSS could be affecting as much as half the population. .

6: Roger’s Legacy

Vicki Clifford Karnac Books ePub

Below is an exploration of how contemporary person-centred therapists have responded to Rogers. As with Freud, many of Rogers’ followers are thinking people themselves and intent on building on the foundations which Rogers created: the death of the founder gives license for change. As we have noted, Rogers was adamant that the core conditions were necessary and sufficient, and that nothing else was required. Eugene Gendlin, a contemporary of Rogers, dabbled with the notion of adding what he called “focusing”. He believed that this could enable the client to locate feelings which were on “the edge of their awareness”. Brian Thorne also believes that “tenderness” could be added to Rogers’ “Trinity”. At a conference (in the University of Stirling, Scotland, 1990) three years after Rogers’ death in 1987, the followers of Gendlin and his ideas on focusing were gathering strength and confidence and even purists such as Bozarth and Temaner Brodley, who had been vehemently against any additions, were not challenging them in the way that they previously had. Although the tension has not yet been fully resolved between experientialists and purists, it may be that in time the reactions caused by the loss of the founder and the need to hang on to the, albeit illusory, authenticity of the tradition, will abate. The position of top dog in the person-centred tradition has as yet to be established: in the UK Thorne is certainly still a contender. The most recent evidence of this came at the BAPC conference (The University of Strathclyde 1999) where he behaved, and was treated, as if he was the new messiah, father figure of the person-centred approach.
