Transformative Classroom Management The natural condition of any classroom is harmonious, satisfying, and productive, so why do so many teachers struggle with problems of apathy, hostility, anxiety, inefficiency, and resistance? In this groundbreaking book, education expert John Shindler presents a powerful model, Transformative Classroom Management (TCM), that can be implemented by any teacher to restore the natural positive feelings in his or her classroom—the love of learning, collaboration, inspiration, and giving—and create a productive learning environment in which all students can achieve. Unlike other classroom management systems that view problems as something to be "handled," TCM offers suggestions for creating optimal conditions for learning, performance, motivation, and growth. This practical book shows teachers how to abandon ineffective short-term gimmicks, bribes, and punishments and adopt the proven management practices and new habits of mind that will transform their classrooms. Praise for Transformative Classroom Management "Transformative Classroom Management is a practical resource that explains the how and why of classroom management for novice and veteran teachers. Dr. Shindler recognizes the importance of preserving the teacher's sanity while ensuring the student's development of a personal sense of responsibility and a positive self-esteem." —EILEEN MATUS, principal, South Toms River Elementary School, New Jersey "I have read many other management books by other authors, but Transformative Classroom Management has been the best so far at demystifying the invisible forces in the classroom." —WILL McELROY, 4th grade teacher, Los Angeles United School District "This book was an invaluable tool for me during my student teaching. It served as a reference book that I found myself continually drawn to while struggling to find ways to effectively manage 29 first graders. The ideas, concepts and suggestions in the book were so innovative and helpful that even my Master Teacher found herself implementing some of the ideas! A must have for all student teachers!" —CAROL GILLON, student teacher, Seattle University "Insightful and thoroughly researched, Transformative Classroom Management is an invaluable tool to help teachers, newbies and veterans alike, develop fully functional and engaged learning communities." —LISA GAMACHE RODRIGUEZ, teacher, Los Angeles Unified School District

This monograph focuses on school-based practices and programs that promote safe and drug-free schools. It begins with a description of the key characteristics of schools with effective programs and provides a model for school-wide support. Necessary steps for developing an effective system of universal prevention are listed and include: (1) establish a climate of mutual respect; (2) conduct a review of all policies related to safety, instruction, and student discipline; (3) recognize feelings of staff and students and what constitutes appropriate expressions of those feelings; (4) make identifying and managing feelings an integral part of the curriculum; (5) teach the concept of responsibility for ones actions throughout the curriculum; (6) recognize and intervene when early warning signs are observed; (7) implement programs to prevent alcohol and substance abuse; (8) train staff in topics such as diversity problem-solving skills, verbal de-escalation, cooperative learning, anger control, and aggression management; (9) avoid legal vulnerability; and (10) couple security procedures with a school-wide communication system and a crisis plan. Following chapters address the academic/behavior connection, the concept of a school-wide team to address prevention and intervention, and guidelines for selecting programs. Five specific programs are described and a list of additional resources is provided. (CR)

Faculty of Educational Sciences has recognized the importance of education for interculturalism, and it organizes the conference entitled "Education for interculturalism" every five years, so that all participants could gain new insights about interculturalism and strengthen their intercultural competencies. Modern interculturalism, as a modern and current topic in scientific and public educational policy, appears in the 20th century in the United States as an expression of pragmatic interest for international convergence of majority and minority ethnic groups. Education must be directed to the full development of the humans and strengthen respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms. It must promote understanding, tolerance and friendship among all nations, racial or religious groups, and further support the United Nations work on the maintenance of peace. Pedagogy as a scientific discipline has an important role in the development of intercultural society. It cannot take full responsibility for suppressing racism and promoting intercultural competencies, but it is important in facilitating the development of students' intercultural competencies, skills, attitudes, values and knowledge. Education which is aimed at only one culture is more and more undesirable and unfamiliar to today's students. It is important that the transformation of the education system, in addition to a series of plural democratic demands, pays much more attention precisely to cultural sensitivity that will meet the educational needs of every individual, and as an educational effect among young people, develop respect, appreciation and a positive attitude towards differences, education for diversity. The immediate implications of the new approaches to pedagogy are also reflected in the implementation level, national curriculum and the implementation in (school) practice: encouraging team work in the classrooms (cooperative approach), adopting European values, education for solidarity, empowering the personality and self-esteem of students, developing motivation for learning (changes in the way of work), (co)construction of the school curriculum, and towards the intercultural school community. The need for changes in traditional schools stems from the creation of a new paradigm: towards viewing life and the world from multiple directions and philosophical views, where the educational way of thinking changes as well as the structure of the school, from (pre)enhanced cognitive, towards social relations, democratic participation, the acquisition of competences, collaborative learning and solidarity. School can significantly influence, through intercultural curriculum, the formation of intercultural attitudes and preparation of students for mutual and equal relations. Therefore, the importance of indirect impacts hidden curriculum which is reflected in the organization, the social structure of students, school culture, relations between teachers and students, teaching methods, extracurricular activities of students is unquestionable. It is meetings of researchers and teachers from different backgrounds and countries, and in these conferences in the field of interculturalism that allow the exchange of educational experiences in learning and understanding of intercultural relations in different countries and have a significant, not only informative, but also educational value. The conference was very fruitful and stimulating with the conclusion that with such small steps we actually made a decisive step towards improving the position of Roma in education. Generally, investment in human capital is one of the most important foundations of the sustainable development of human beings, and their individual growth and development as well as investment in human society as a whole. Therefore, the sustaining of diversity and global exchange of goods represents one of the greatest challenges that humanity faces today, the solution of which depends largely on the principles governing the relationships between individuals in a society--what was promoted within the framework of all activities of the Project RO-ufos-luna-MI and presented in the context of scientific and professional papers of the conference. The Faculty of Education in Osijek, together with its partner, the Association of Roma Friendship Luna from Beli Manastir, has launched a project titled "The Improvement of the Position of Roma Children in Education in Baranja Region" (RO-ufos-luna-MI) in order to contribute to raising awareness of the importance of creating an intercultural atmosphere in the community. The associates on the project are the Osijek Branch Office of the Teacher Training Agency, the Dr Franjo Tudman primary school, and Cvrcak nursery school from Beli Manastir.
