How can you really make a difference for your students? Teaching Tough Kids delivers a refreshing collection of realistic ideas to sustain the organisational and behavioural transformations of all students, particularly those who 'do it tough'; who learn and react differently. They are complex kids who find life tougher than most. Managing their emotion and behaviour presents educators with a spectacular challenge in schools today, and numbers are on the rise. Filled with inspirational case studies, this book focuses on building improved relationships, structures and behaviours, rather than seeing the student as 'the problem' that must be fixed. Highlighting the value of promoting positive connections with students of all ages, the author presents ways to incorporate inclusive ideas into everyday practice and construct pathways for students to become engaged in their learning and achieve success. This stimulating book shows teachers how to: build student connectedness to learning; set achievable goals for each individual child; support emotional stability; strengthen organisation patterns; address behavioural issues; improve homework planning; create friendships and deal with bullying. Teaching Tough Kids takes a particularly close focus on students identified with Learning Disability, Attention Deficit Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder and Asperger Syndrome. Another group of students with executive functioning difficulties are emerging in schools. These are the kids who have endured neglect or too much stress and uncertainty in their lives and as a result display classic symptoms of hyperactivity, hyper vigilance and impulsivity. Teaching Tough Kids will be of immense interest to teachers, student teachers, staff in Pupil Referral Units, SENCos and all those involved with Behaviour Support work.

For more than twenty-five years, Lee Ann Perry has been counseling others out of anxiety and depression. When faced with the emotional trauma of the breakup of her own marriage, Lee began her ascent to happiness by reaffirming her fundamental belief that there is always a way to overcome adversity. Through the years, Lee observed that some people recover quickly from setbacks while others linger in pain. She resolved to be like the former, moreover, she was determined to discover the most direct path back to thriving. Over her lifetime, Lee has been a seeker of inspiration and enlightenment. Given her interest in spiritual evolution, her marriage ending was compelling evidence that something was off in the way she had interpreted and applied what she had come to believe. That disconnect impelled her to a rigorous examination of the evolution of her spiritual and philosophical path—which beliefs and practices had contributed to her overall happiness, and which had not. Lee was convinced that both staying stuck and moving on were choices; she recognized that she did not have to be a victim of her circumstances. She sought an empowering alternative and tapped into profound happiness in the process. Her experience went far beyond confirming her belief that adversity can be turned into opportunity. She discovered that her capacity for happiness expanded with her self-awareness. People began to notice how joyful she was, and their eagerness to learn how to get similar results inspired her to write down the details of her process. This book recounts Lee’s journey from despair to elation in thoughtful, lucid, and sometimes amusing anecdotes. You can follow this unfolding and apply these insights to expand your own experience of happiness and well-being. “Insightful and inspiring. The heartfelt tale of a counselor’s journey from pain to self-acceptance and the transformational power of living a life of love.” Dr. Marion L. Cavallaro Professor, The College of New Jersey, Department of Counselor Education

Rick and William Ayers renew their challenge to teachers to teach initiative, to teach imagination, to “teach the taboo” in the new edition of this bestseller. Drawing from a lifetime of deep commitment to students, teaching, and social justice, the authors update their powerful critique of schooling and present classroom stories of everyday teachers grappling with many of today’s hotly debated issues. They invite educators to live a teaching life of questioning—to imagine classrooms where every established and received bit of wisdom, common sense, orthodoxy, and dogma is open for examination, interrogation, and rethinking. Teaching the Taboo, Second Edition is an insightful guide to effective pedagogy and essential reading for anyone looking to evolve as an educator. What’s new for the second edition of Teaching the Taboo! A deeper exploration of issues of white privilege and racism and war and peace. A more thorough examination of the problems with math and science education, including possible solutions. An expanded exploration of the importance of creative writing for validating individual and community experiences. A more thorough discussion of Freire’s work and comparison to the radical teaching projects of African American activists in the south during the Freedom Schools. An in-depth look at how students can be part of co-constructing historical narratives and analyses. An update on school struggles in Atlanta, Chicago, and Seattle. Praise for the first edition of Teaching the Taboo! “For those frustrated by the thrust of educational 'reform'…this book provides what can be described as both a challenge and a set of alternatives.” —Education Review “Drawing from a lifetime of deep thinking about education and courageous commitment to precious students, Rick and William Ayers have given us a marvelous book. Their devastating critique of the pervasive market models in education and their powerful defense of democratic forms of imagination in schools are so badly needed in our present-day crisis!” —Cornel West, Princeton University “Teaching the Taboo is provocative, challenging, funny in places, wild but sensible enough to be useful, inspiring, and practical for educators who are working to negate the educational madness that is infecting the schools.” —Herb Kohl, author of 36 Children and Painting Chinese Rick Ayers is a university instructor and founder of the Communication Arts and Sciences small school at Berkeley High School, and teaches at the University of San Francisco. William Ayers is a school reform activist and a Distinguished Professor of Education and Senior University Scholar at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
