Teaching Children Who Are Hard to Reach: Relationship-Driven Classroom Practice

Create lasting, positive change for our most troubled students!

How do you move beyond traditional classroom management to create a learning environment that engages our hardest-to-reach students—students who may be struggling due to emotional disturbances or disabilities or environmental circumstances? Michael Marlowe and Torey Hayden have the answer: through a relationship-driven classroom. With the help of their book, you will: Gain a meaningful understanding of troubled students and how to reach and teach them effectively; Learn how to change inappropriate behavior rather than just control it; Become more reflective about teaching and learning with challenging children

Drawing on real-life stories, including some of those described in Torey Hayden's bestselling books on working with troubled children, the authors shed new light on the challenges of working with hard-to-reach students and identify the key skills teachers need to build successful classroom relationships and facilitate learning for all.

“The authors have done a good job of putting ‘method’ to relationship teaching and have the real-life background references to authenticate what is said.”

—Sharon Jefferies, Teacher

Lakeville Elementary, Apopka, FL

“The case studies and research behind building relationships in classroom environments are major strengths, as is the myriad of methodology regarding discipline, identifying and managing troubled students, and how to decrease disruptions.”

—Tara Howell, AP Science Teacher

University City High School, San Diego, CA
