The Classroom Teacher's Trouble-Shooting Handbook: Practical Solutions to Problems with Students, Adults and Procedures
ISBN: 0966594703

Arthur Coyle Press. 1999

This problem-solving handbook describes situations that can occur in any elementary or high school classroom and offers productive resolutions. It addresses the myriad problems that can arise with students, as well as those with colleagues, administrators, parents, procedures, and unions. One hundred and fifty different situations are examined, including what to do if a student is suicidal, a screaming parent comes storming into the classroom, or a superior makes an inappropriate advance. Here are concrete steps to be taken to resolve a variety of classroom problems in a positive manner, as well as a clear list of actions to avoid.

The Classroom Teacher's Inclusion Handbook: Practical Methods for Integrating Students with Special Needs
ISBN: 0966594754

Arthur Coyle Press. 2006

Fourteen types of special-needs students are discussed in this handbook on meeting the needs of a diverse student population within a mainstream classroom. Ranging from students with behavior disorders, ADHD, and mental retardation to the blind, terminally ill, and gifted and talented, each profile includes a clear definition, characteristic behaviors, and suggestions for working with that student's specific strengths and weaknesses. A section devoted to inclusion strategies helps educators set goals for special needs students, define the roles of other students in the classroom, and work with the administration if mainstream placement is unsuccessful.

The Excellent Teacher's Handbook: Exercises to Take Your Teaching to a Higher Level
ISBN: 0966594746

Arthur Coyle Press. 2002

This practical handbook challenges both new and experienced teachers to review their thoughts and practices on 60 important issues that confront them throughout their careers. Topics include what students should learn in 12 years, how teachers can help students build self-esteem, the place of religion and politics in the classroom, and how teachers can make a difference in students’ lives. Issues are presented as challenging questions followed by several possible solutions. Space for writing and reaction is provided, engaging teachers directly with the text and making them active thinkers and players in the field of education.
