Do you remember a time when you used the right words at the right moment, and they made all the difference? With the aim of helping you repeat that experience every day, this book provides hundreds of examples of what we call Great Teacher Language, a technique designed to help all teachers use words to transform student behavior and parent relationships. In their years of working at the K-12 levels, educators Hal Holloman and Peggy H. Yates have identified the exact phrases and key words you can use in your classroom to address inappropriate outbursts, a lack of respect and cooperation, student conflict, and more. Great Teacher Language will enable you to transform student behavior, parent relationships, and your classroom culture.
There are 11 Great Teacher Language Word Categories featured in the book, which you'll learn how to use in terms of self-talk, student talk, and parent talk: Words of Accountability, Words of Encouragement, Words of Grace, Words of Guidance, Words of High Expectations, Words of Hope, Words of Love, Words of Relationships, Words of Respect, Words of Understanding and Words of Unity.
Filled with helpful charts and Great Teacher Language examples, this resource will be one you turn to again and again, and will make a transformational difference for your students, your parents, and you!
