This timely book explores the stresses exerted on today's students, and shows teachers how to reduce the atmosphere of tension and pressure in their classrooms. It emphasizes the power teachers have in building a positive environment, through kindness and stress reduction.
Committed to fostering a healthier classroom, Stop the Stress in Schools provides explicit ways to build healthy relationships and handle problems so that negative interactions, such as bullying, are reduced. It features calming strategies that include slowing the pace; increasing positive engagement and interaction, considering the perspective of the student; and celebrating process rather than product. Instead of targeting the symptoms of stress, this thoughtful book focuses on the social-emotional traits that are instrumental in helping children experience stress and navigate through it constructively. A comprehensive approach to reducing stress and frustration for teachers and students, the book includes practical examples, activities, and samples of student work.
