"As times and students change, teachers are finding that the old methods of anger and intimidation are no longer working for classroom management. Discipline without Anger shows teachers how to successfully manage student misbehavior so that they can be free to teach at their full potential. Without a change, our schools and students will continue to suffer the consequences"--Provided by publisher.

Creating Joyful Classrooms is a practical response to the malaise in America’s schools created by high stakes testing, disrespect for the teaching profession, and resources being redirected to charter schools and private school vouchers. Classroom teachers feel helpless and students feel hapless. Joy has left the building. This book offers the antidote to return joy and passion to teaching and learning. Whether a beginning teacher or a seasoned veteran, this book shows the way back to timeless child-centered best practices that engage young children and increase academic achievement. As joyful classrooms multiply, their success will drive out the poisonous rancor of cynicism and despair to become beacons of hope for children everywhere. This book also makes the case for changing the status quo in the elementary school. The standard traditional grade school is failing to meet the needs of children growing up in the information age. Elementary schools must evolve into multi-grade, multi-dimensional safe havens that challenge children academically, while remembering to cherish childhood. Based upon the theory of invitational education, this book provides specific strategies, along with classroom management tools, to create highly engaging classrooms for young children. It also offers inspiring stories of heroic teachers who beat the odds to bring joy back to school. It’s not too late for a better tomorrow.

This is a book by an educator for educators. After teaching in public high schools for over twenty years, I have decided to try to give back. This work is the result. It is a thorough list of 365 tips for teachers who want to become better in every way, covering everything from discipline, relationships at school (teacher/student, teacher/teacher, teacher/administrator, and teacher/parent), wellness, mental health, and general success in an education career. I draw on what I’ve learned from my experiences (both positive and negative), my successes, my failures, and just plain common sense and logic. It took me a few years to compile this list and I feel like I can offer help for teachers over a variety of aspects of the teaching professions. My goal is simply that educators are better off for having read this book.

If school administrators and teachers adopt Jensen’s easy, direct, and effective ways to help students manage their feelings and focus their attention, the results will be two-fold: schools will foster a cooperative and high-performing learning community, and students will succeed academically while also mastering important social skills.
