Overview:
Over 50% of K-12 teachers leave the profession in five years due to classroom "discipline problems". Unfortunately, with pressure to pass these students on, with colleges' dire needs for admissions and financial pressures, and with the often "rough" culture of adolescence - higher education teachers/professors are now finding disruptive behaviors in their college classrooms. This book helps college instructors not just handle, but prevent these real-life disruptions in higher education so as to not lower learning standards. The book includes guidelines for preventive skills that respect the teaching style of the instructor/professor. Included are: concrete examples of problems and their prevention/solution; help with creating a better Course Syllabus that curtails problems; and training exercises to practice these skills. The best time to solve a problem is before it starts.
