Though this was written in the 70's, this book opened my eyes to how to make students responsible for their own decisions, how to let them know I heard what they said without judgment from me, how to not accept others' problems as my own (BIG idea for me). This was my first indepth look into NOT praising (a roadblock for real communication...go figure)and not interjecting my input and biases into the mix of someone else's problems, but to trust them to figure out their own solutions. I resisted ...more
The typical program for "classroom management" focuses either on discipline (how to be assertive and fair) or procedures (how to plan ahead to avoid problems). These are both useful tools, but there is a subtext to these discussions: the ideal classroom is free of conflict, and if there is conflict, it is either the fault of the teacher or the student. But, as any real teacher will tell you, a classroom free of conflict is a fantasy.

Students and teachers can't help but bring their clashing value
There were really practical suggestions for any interaction with other humans -- what can be found in here is not just limited to classrooms and teacher/student relationships. Active Listening is the most interesting aspect from this book for me. I'm going to pay much more attention to the attention I give others.
T.E.T. Teacher Effectiveness Training has been in my personal collection of professional books for many years. It offers so many helpful suggestions about learning to listen to your students, value what they say and let them know how much you value them. I have used it for as a reference for many college papers for classes I have taken over the years. Communication skills are among the most important skills for a teacher (or anyone) to develop to accomplish our goals. T.E.T. is easy to read, wri ...more

Eğitim bilimlerine giriş dersimizde hocamız bize bu kitabı önermişti ve ödevimiz de kendi alanımız üzerine yazılmış bir kitap okumak olduğu için bu kitabı uygun gördüm. Kitap öğretmenlik ile ilgili güzel şeylerden bahsetmiş. Öğretmenlere ve öğretmen adaylarına oldukça faydalı bir kitap bence tavsiye ederim. Kitaba 5 Kasım gibi başladım ve okuma sürecinde bana birşeyler kattığını belirtmek isterim. Günlük hayattan örneklerle, diyaloglarla da anlatım zenginleştirilmiştir. Öğrencilere nasıl davranı ...more
College textbook from years ago.

Etkili Öğretmenlik Eğitimi kitabı içerisinde öğretmen öğrenci ilişkilerine dair örnek olaylar vardı.Bu örnek olayları okuyup öğrendiğimde bende nasıl bir öğretmen olacağımı kurguladım.Kitaptaki bilgiler ve olaylar öğretmenlik duygusunu son derece hissettirebilecek nitelikte.Her eğitimcinin okuması gereken kitaplardan biri de Etkili Öğretmenlik Eğitimi kitabı olmalı bence.Kitaptaki kavram açıklamaları ve örnekler çok güzel bir şekilde ele alınmıştı.Tavsiye edilebilecek güzel bir kitap.
I found this interesting if not applicable to the school I work at. The material is a bit outdated - most schools don't do the 1960's style power-heavy teaching style anymore, but that part fit my school like a glove. On the other hand, I'm not teaching in a democracy, and my school is run like a business, so lots of the material about making students into active participants still doesn't apply.
I read this for my classroom management class during college, and while then I thought that I wouldn't use anything in this book, I proved myself wrong during my student teaching.
This book is very focused on "I" messages, which I used with 3rd graders and it worked very well. I employed some of the other strategies with success.
It's a great read for any person who works in a setting with children.

bu tarz bir kitabı ilk defa okuyorum bir öğretmen adayı olarak etkili öğretmenlik eğitimi kitabı öğrenci öğretmen ilişkisini güzel bir şekilde ele almış ve örneklendirmeler yapılmış. kitap sadece bize değil hayatın içinde de çocuklarla iletişim anlamında herkese bir şeyler katabilecek nitelikte.

Wonderful book that relates to any teacher's teaching experiences. Goes over the struggles, road blocks, disciplining, communication, respect and offers perspectives for respecting students and yourself as a teacher and individual.
A very good read for teachers, highly recommended. Helps with class management and discipline. Very good info on i-messages, among other things.

Parents should read PET, Parent Effectiveness Training.
How to talk so that people will listen. This is helpful for teachers but also for all human beings who wish to communicate effectively with other human beings.
A little out dated and narrow.
