I found this book really helpful, and I m looking forward to putting the ideas into practice next week when the students start school The idea behind teaching with love and logic is that, instead of having a discipline system of rules and punishments, teachers address discipline issues on the basis of principles This means that each instance is addressed uniquely It also means that the kid is made to do most of the work in resolving the problem and thereby actually learns how to problem sol I found this book really helpful, and I m looking forward to putting the ideas into practice next week when the students start school The idea behind teaching with love and logic is that, instead of having a discipline system of rules and punishments, teachers address discipline issues on the basis of principles This means that each instance is addressed uniquely It also means that the kid is made to do most of the work in resolving the problem and thereby actually learns how to problem solve as opposed to the teacher doing all of the work of thinking about the appropriate consequence to fit the crime What was revolutionary to me was the idea that consequences don t have to be implemented at the moment of the misbehavior Instead, the teacher can acknowledge the appropriate behavior and inform the student that she will think about how to handle this and will let the student know of her decision at that time This avoids plunging into a power struggle in the heat of the emotional moment The authors also stressed the importance of giving students choices Saying, Would you like to work quietly like you re supposed or would you like to go to the dean s office is not really a choice since it s obvious which choice is preferred Instead, students need to be offered real, enforceable choices For example, Would you like to continue working with a partner quietly or would you like to work by yourself in a different area I really liked the idea of informing students what you, the teacher, will do instead of trying to dictate what the students will do So, instead of Sit down, be quiet , you can say, We will begin the lesson when everyone is seated and quiet If students refuse to sit in their assigned seats, instead of entering into the expected battle, you can simply say, I will mark present students who are in their assigned seats This informs the student of the implied consequence and allows the student to make a good decision instead of being ordered around.I think these new methods will take time to become second nature, but, with the help of this book, I m hoping to have a much calmer and smoother year Of all the books I ve read so far on classroom management, I believe the Love and Logic approach fits best with my personal philosophy give the students as much control as possible over their environment, backed up with natural and reasonable consequences and teacher consistency The goal is to educate students in making good decisions while preserving their self concept while off loading work from teachers onto students.The problem is that the book while it has a solid philosophy is di Of all the books I ve read so far on classroom management, I believe the Love and Logic approach fits best with my personal philosophy give the students as much control as possible over their environment, backed up with natural and reasonable consequences and teacher consistency The goal is to educate students in making good decisions while preserving their self concept while off loading work from teachers onto students.The problem is that the book while it has a solid philosophy is difficult to read You have tips and experiments spread throughout the book, often with little connection to the surrounding text There are lists and lists and examples and examples, but often not enough connective tissue to put it all together There were a few times when the authors would refer to the Four Principles of Logic and Love, and I would go what were those again You also have the problem of different chapters written by different authors with slightly different agendas That begin said, the last chapter with specifics on strategies of intervention works very well I m intrigued by the idea and think it has definite possibilities, but the material in this book was not well compiled and edited I found it redundant in some places and unclear in others. I love the love and logic series This makes me a better teacher and really it should be read once a year I read a copy of the old edition and it was definitely dated Basic premise is good speak to kids respectfully and make them share responsibility for solving preventing behavior problems in the classroom It includes sample dialogues and suggested phrases and questions to use in particular situations The book itself is pretty repetitive and way longer than it needs to be The writing is a little smug and many of the dialogues do not sound realistic. I m currently re reading this book because it requires continued study and reflection It s probably one of the best tools I ve found for behavior management in a classroom, and possibly the only system that can work in an online teaching environment The ideas seem so simple, but the application with a cool head under pressure takes much study and practice I ve found I ve mastered several of the ideas put forth in the text and am mining it for the next ideas I can apply.As for the writing itse I m currently re reading this book because it requires continued study and reflection It s

writing itself, the main issue reader may have is the slightly clunky transition between authors There is not a lot of co writing in the book, but individual chapters written by two men Honestly, there are times when one of them gets on my nerves in his prose, but I have pushed past it in order to get the total message.For my friends who have young kids, you might want to go look for the original Love and Logic guide for parents I could TOTALLY stand working with parents who have already exposed their children to this way of thinking and deciding I put my name in to be a substitute teacher in Strafford School working from K to 8 in any or all areas Sadly, I told a friend who works before and aftercare in nearby Somersworth, that the words I m taking names escaped my lips and how

book How to use this book take the advice in Chapter One work on one thing at a time Before you change a student s behavior, you need to change yours I read this book in small sections, took notes, and applied the ideas to the classroom I did not move on to another chapter until I had it down.Quotes from the book work immediately in classrooms Put them on note cards, then literally pull it out of your back pocket examples below I learned to rephrase requests to avoid confrontation, giving control to students where applicable, showing empathy, making connections, and how to handle extreme behavior both disruptive and those students who chronically underachieve I will listen to you when you use a soft voice Oh, that s too bad It must feel frustrating to work hard and have points taken off for being late I am available to hear complaints at 4 00 pm You can talk as long as you are quiet I believe in you, let me know if I can help This is the second book by these guys I ve read The only detractor is that they have becomeprofessional and clinical in their approach The first book Parenting with Love and Logic wasgritty and humorous Either one, five stars While I found this book interesting and gleaned some useful information from it, I did not find it as useful as I thought I might I may have find ituseful if I reread it during the summer when I havetime to study books and

been updated since initial publication.I actually thought the book fairly good until one of the authors related a series of stories in which he mentions striking two different children He uses these as negative examples and things that he learned from However, these two stories left a bitter taste in my mouth that I could not set aside as I finished the book In my time teaching granted, only two and a half years at this point , I have never once even come close to hitting a student, unless I accidentally move my arm unaware that a student had walked behind me To me, these stories undermined the author s credibility and generated a lot of doubts about the method.In the end, I think that the love and logic method has several good techniques to choose from even amongst some impracticability

choices Yes, you can turn that in on Friday, but you know what will happen if you do, right Also applying a lot of the Socratic questioning A lot of times, they sort of rat themselves out, ya know And some of it I already knew and was already applying without really realizing I was doing so.It s an easy read and I m sure it s one I ll go back to, scanning the highlighted text Although some of it I m just not sure about, I think a lot of it will come in handy I m sure I ll let some of you know
