Title:

How to talk so kids can learn– at home and in school : what every parent and teacher needs to know / Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish … [et al.].

Publication info:

New York : Simon & Schuster, 1996, c1995.

Physical description:

272 p. ; 22 cm.

General Note:

“A Fireside book.”

Summary:

Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish developed this book in response to constant requests to adapt the unique communications strategies that hallmark their books, lectures, and audio-visual workshops to specific concerns of the classroom. To do so, they teamed up with two award-winning teachers who well know the problems of our faltering school system. This book utilizes the dramatically effective “dialogue” technique (what to say and how and when to say it) that has made Faber and Mazlish’s work famous worldwide. It also features engaging “right and wrong” cartoons that show how to handle typical learning situations so kids will be inspired to do their best. Each chapter includes questions and answers and stories from parents and teachers that illustrate how both have successfully used this method to help kids handle the schoolwork, behavioral, and peer problems that interfere with learning. In every chapter there is a one-page “quick reminder” that sums up that chapter’s salient points for speedy reference.
