Building classroom success: eliminating academic fear and failure
School has the potential to be a major source of personal and academic fulfilment.
However, the reality is that fear and failure pervade many students' academic lives.
Rather than respond to these fears in constructive and courageous ways, many students engage in self-defeating, avoidant and helpless behaviours.
This book examines the counterproductive strategies students use in schools today, and suggests successful practices educators can adopt to eliminate fear and failure in the classroom and help students respond to their problematic behaviours in more positive and productive ways.
Through building student success, educators build classroom success.
