Mainstreaming and other inclusion policies have greatly increased the number of students with behavior and adjustment problems in regular elementary and middle-school classrooms. How can teachers and other school professionals most effectively motivate these children to improve their skills, attitudes, and coping abilities? Presenting research-based strategies for helping students with problems succeed in school, this volume integrates the latest research on child development, educational psychology, and the literature provided by treatment professionals. It also includes the results of the Classroom Strategy Study (CSS), a comprehensive study which examines strategies that teachers have used - both successfully and unsuccessfully - in dealing with a broad range of commonly encountered student problems, such as underachievement, aggression, defiance, immature behavior, and excessive shyness. With special attention to how teachers, parents, and other school professionals can collaborate to help problem students while maintaining an effective and supportive learning environment for all students, this accessible volume is an indispensable resource for anyone working in the schools. It also serves as an excellent text.

In this book an experienced classroom teacher and noted researcher on teaching takes us into her fifth grade math class through the course of a year. Magdalene Lampert shows how classroom dynamics--the complex relationship of teacher, student, and content--are critical in the process of bringing each student to a deeper understanding of mathematics, or any other subject. She offers valuable insights into students and teaching for all who are concerned about improving the learning that happens in the classroom. Lampert considers the teacher's and students' work from many different angles, in views large and small. She analyzes her own practice in a particular classroom, student by student and moment by moment. She also investigates the particular kind of teaching that aims at engaging elementary school students in learning fundamentally important ideas and skills by working on problems. Finally, she looks at the common problems of teaching that occur regardless of the individuals, subject matter, or kinds of practice involved. Lampert arrives at an original model of teaching practice that casts new light on the complexity in teachers' work and on the ways teachers can successfully deal with teaching problems.
