The purpose of this paper is to present select findings from a case study of a single suburban middle school. The purpose of the investigation was to explore and describe teachers' and students' perceptions of the caring leadership practices that seventh grade teachers used in their classrooms and the differences between those perceptions. The seven leadership practices of Kouzes and Posner's (2003) theory of "encouraging the heart" served as the conceptual framework. Data were collected using in-person interviews with 10 seventh grade teachers and two focus groups with 15 of their students. Both teachers and students reported that teachers mainly set and modeled behavioral standards, which were focused on students assuming responsibility for their own learning and demonstrating self-control. Neither group of participants described specific instances of the teachers setting academic standards or content-based goals. Implications for future research are offered. (Contains 1 table.).

For courses in the Guidance and Management of Young Children. This text examines the nature of conflict among 2- to 8-year-olds from a research-based, constructivist/ecological perspective - integrating themes of caring, building classroom community, connecting curriculum, involving family and community, and responding to the current educational climate. The author thoroughly discusses children's conflicts, emphasizing that peer and community culture make up the foundation for preventing and resolving conflict, and advocates teaching conflict resolution skills via a "three-layer-cake" of understanding, management, and resolution. Coverage presents ways to create a caring classroom - both in physical environment and curriculum, to work with other adults in a child's life, and to implement peer mediation. Throughout, the material stresses the need to understand all children in light of applicable theory and current "best practice" in culturally responsive and inclusive classrooms.

Intending to ground the theories of caring in education, this book expands the current discourse on caring. The work of those who have examined the ethic of caring has provided a rich and useful discussion of the topic from people who, no doubt, are caring and are committed to caring in practice. However, the representation of reallife expressions of caring within educational contexts has been missing from the literature. This books fills this void by providing a collection of current expressions of educators' and researchers' experiences as they seek to manifest caring.

This text offers teachers a concise and applied guide to successfully managing the elementary school classroom within the context of new No Child Left Behind and standards-driven concerns. Mindful of NCLB legislation, this teacher-friendly, standards-driven new edition examines issues and models of management concerns in 21st century elementary classrooms. Well-conceived classroom management helps establish positive environments and programs where communication, cooperation, and dedication to learning prevail. This book is designed to assist teachers, both novice and experienced, in developing and refining management skills that lead to learning and enjoyment of the classroom. New to this Edition: New chapter correlations to the Interstate New Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium (INTASC), the Praxis Series, the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS), and the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) are included to provide easy reference for students. A new section in Chapter 13 presents ways to deal with the emotions of stress that result from unexpected or disastrous events. Discussion of No Child Left Behind legislation, which asks for best practice and research-supported practice, is infused into all chapters. Updated technology, including technology to assist teachers and students with special needs is included (Ch 6) with a clear distinction between students learning from technology versus students learning with technology. New to the chapter on Managing Special Groups (Ch.8), are references to specific assistive technologies for the student and teacher. Chapter 9 discussesextreme behaviors including " the bully, the bullied, and the bystander" that are all too common in today's schools. Related Titles: "Building Classroom Discipline, 8/e" Carol M.
