Disruptive Behavior In Your Classroom
We’ve never met, but I know a couple things about you:
1) You got into teaching for all the right reasons but find yourself occasionally frustrated by problem studentswho have the whammy on you and send you home feeling frustrated, defeated, disillusioned, unhappy, or worse.
And . . .
2) If someone gave you a new way of dealing with unresponsive and disruptive students — and it was an easy-to-follow method that actually worked — you’d want to hear more about it.
How do I know these things about you? I’ve been there myself!
I’ve made a career out of helping other teachers succeed with students that other teachers gave up on. And my methods flat-out work, because for more than 11 years, I was "in the trenches" working with some of the most unreachable, learning disabled kids in a major metropolitan school district.
Even if you never read my book or
my free 5-part report, do these four things
with your ADHD students and you will see
dramatic improvements almost immediately:
1. Find Out What Your ADHD Student Loves And Figure Out A Way To Involve That In His School Day. (In Chapter 8, I give you an absurdly easy way to do this on the first day of school.)
2. "Listen" To Your Students’ Misbehavior. Student misbehavior isn't just an annoying disruption --- it's a secret message the student is (unwittingly) trying to convey to you. And usually that message can be boiled down to two words: "Reach me." On page 45, I give you a way to do exactly that --- a method that is so effortless, effective and simple, you’re going to slap your forehead and wonder why you didn’t think of it first!
3. Get Your ADHD Students To Like You. I’m not talking about a loosey-goosey approach in which you undercut your authority by becoming their "friend." I’m talking about winning the respect from your student in such a likeable way that he then becomes comfortable letting his guard down and now is on "your side." You’ll be astonished what this technique alone will do, and you might even become a hero to him in the process. My book gives you the exact approach for doing this.
4. Stop Controlling And Start Coaching. Change your style of thinking from a controlling, adversarial mode to something more like coaching. You almost want to think of yourself as a personal trainer for these kids. The typical teacher is thinking, "I need to establish control, and the student needs to follow me and do what they’re told." And that works just fine for regular students. But it’s a whole different ball game with ADHD kids.
Don’t purchase anything on ADHD unless it meets the following three criteria:
- It is written by someone who actually has tested the techniques personally.
- It is written in plain English about situations you face every day.
- It offers at least a 60-day guarantee without fine print or strings attached.
"The ADHD Solution for Teachers" will give you a step-by-step approach that will transform your worst student into your best — or, more specifically, give you the exact blueprint to reach your highly distractible ADHD student so that you can go home feeling refreshed and energized instead of frustrated and defeated.
No more battles. No more power struggles. Just you and your students on the same page together working toward the same goal.
