❰EPUB❯ ✼ Lost and Found Author Ross W. Greene – Jobs-in-kingston.co.uk Implement a constructive approach to difficult students Lost and Found is a follow up to Dr Ross Greene's landmark works The Explosive Child and Lost at School providing educators with highly practica Implement a constructive approach to difficult students Lost and Found is a follow up to Dr Ross Greene's landmark works The Explosive Child and Lost at School providing educators with highly practical explicit Lost and PDF/EPUB or guidance on implementing his Collaborative Proactive Solutions CPS Problem Solving model with behaviorally challenging students While the first two books described Dr Greene's positive constructive approach and described implementation on a macro level this useful guide provides the details of hands on CPS implementation by those who interact with these children every day Readers will learn how to incorporate students' input in understanding the factors making it difficult for them to meet expectations and in generating mutually satisfactory solutions Specific strategies sample dialogues and time tested advice help educators implement these techniues immediatelyThe groundbreaking CPS approach has been a revelation for parents and educators of behaviorally challenging children This book gives educators the concrete guidance they need to immediately begin working effectively with these studentsImplement CPS one on one or with an entire class Work collaboratively with students to solve problems Study sample dialogues of CPS in action Change the way difficult students are treated The discipline systems used in K schools are obsolete and aren't working for the kids to whom they're most often applied those with behavioral challenges Lost and Found provides a roadmap to a different paradigm helping educators radically transform the way they go about helping their most challenging students. I really appreciated the strategies suggested in this book I was actually at a job interview where the coordinator suggested I read this book after I described my personal strategies in solving behavior challenges as they seemed uite similar Now I definitely see that I do the initial conversation naturally but need to work on following through and working on solutions with all students A book I would love to share with my colleagues Explains very well how changing our lens when we work with behaviorally challenging kids can be career changing This book isn’t too long and I found it accessible and am ready to continue trying Collaborative and Proactive Solutions with my students as I have been using it at home with my own kids “Kids do well if they can” Some good ideas in here for our team of 7th grade teachers to try with our at risk students next year A review of how well it goes would be better written after we have employed the techniues outlined here They seem to be worth our while and I'm eager to give it a shot with our students As an elementary school teacher that serves at a school that employs PBIS Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports I was under the impression that I was doing all I could to support my students to become successful participants of our society I had sticker charts conseuences for good and bad behavior belief that conseuences is just a thing that happens after something occurs not as a bad thing; and when students didn't work on their stuff they lost out on time to complete that stuffSounds good and responsible right? Well after reading Dr Greene's firestarter Lost and Found I'm extremely excited to get back to school in August with a new approach to discipline Greene's CPS model is simple and he explains away each worry with a A at the end of each chapter sort of like a safeguard from anyone having issues or uestions about the application He understands it's a wildly different approach to discipline; yet as he argues with a much needed sassiness throughout the book how's your current disciplinary system workin' out y'all? With chapters complete with rolling out the CPS system to examples of real life users who are reaping the benefits and even a chapter dedicated to The Others those students that spend 99% of their school life following directions being respectful and not having issues this is a must have book for educators administrators clinicians therapists counselors and anyone else blessed with the responsibility of helping our youngest citizens make it in the Real World successfully Please read this book Parents teachers and anyone This method of communication gives adults and children a sense of respect and love We all have unsolved problems in our life It is how we work them out I grew up with my parents deciding conseuences for me deciding what is right and wrong solving my feelings for me I felt I wasn't being listened to and or I didn't know better All of which has set me up to struggle in solving problems I have learned a lot since my childhood and arguing is not a good way to solve any problem This book will be so beneficial if the model is consistently used and we persevere though the hard times Being mindful of how we speak in the tough times will make the difference Basically throwing out all judgements preconceived notions and solving problems for the child will not be helpful to you Having empathy reflective listening understanding and gathering information will be significantly helpful to you when talking with your student child or relative This book gives you straightforward information very clear and concise in order to implement it every day conflicts I recommend 100% This is a much better book than its cousin Changeable Greene's ideas have a specificity lacking in the other with a detailed implementation plan The book is pitched for people dealing with challenging students in institutional settings but I'm interested in using it for my own child at home In which case some of the bureaucratic aspects may not be as necessaryThe one hesitation I have with the book though is its hidden assumption that behaviorally challenging children are actually rational actors with insight into their own motives This is not my experience and so some of his examples seem far too easily solved collaboratively than should be the case Nonetheless I still appreciate the baseline theory that children generally want to do right and when they are not its because of a lack of skill not willpower “Parents of behaviorally challenging kids know a thing or two about feeling ostracized They know they’re blamed for their child’s challenging behavior despite the fact that they have other children who are well behaved They don’t want to be defensive but feeling blamed doesn’t make that any easier They want to trust that their child is being well treated at school but there are many signs to the contrary Whatever the school is doing isn’t working – their child is still on the receiving end of countless counseling sessions detentions suspensions and worse – but the parents feel powerless to do anything about it”This paragraph in “Lost Found” might be the most insightful and powerful paragraph I’ve ever read This paragraph sums up the life my husband and I are currently leading when it comes to our child In one of the most frustrating worrisome and stressful situations I’ve ever experienced “Lost Found” gave me some hope Hope that my child’s behavior is not due to choices made or personality issues – but because of a lack of skills to cope with or process certain situations Dr Greene posits that “Kids do well if they can if the kid could do well he would do well and that if he’s not doing well he must be lacking the skills to do well”He also notes that rarely if ever do the punitive actions taken by schools help the situation They remove the child from the situation briefly but when she comes back the situation is still the same if not worseHe gives advice on using a tool called ASLUP Assessment of Lagging Skills and Unsolved Problems so that teachers and parents can best identify where skills need to be taught that then will help change behavior It is very detailed and in depth and really gets to the heart of issuesSchool is out for the summer thank GOODNESS – but when it is back in session – I hope to be able to use this advice and that tool to make my child’s school life dramatically better Great book on helping instead of managingSome students are easy to manage Class flows well and they need only the slightest in adjustments to do what you wantneed from them But what about the others? The ones that respond to Would you like if someone did that to you? with I wouldn't care This book guides teachers and parents in effective ways to truly connect and work WITH students to create a plan together that is both realistic and mutually satisfactory Beyond working with students this is a way to totally change how you think about problems with ANYone and ways to better work through those problems I read this book on just a little over a day and would HIGHLY recommend it to everyone A very different behavioral program for schools one that steps completely outside of the typical ideas of punishment and reward to address the real issues of what students and staff are looking for in the school environment and how to address it together As a teacher in both formal and informal environments for the last twenty years I can't say that anything we ever did worked to address student issues as well as I believe this techniue can The mock scenarios are especially helpful in understanding how the program may work out in reality However I did find the teacheradministrator testimonials a bit overdone some of that space could have been taken up effectively in additional scenarios and troubleshooting advice Great follow up to Ross Green's Lost at School on the same topic and model Although in many ways it mirrored Lost at School Green does a nice job in taking the CPS model a step further including providing the website to access necessary tools and training resources throughout the chapters Lost and Found explains the components of the model then explains or provides an approach to develop the skills to implement the strategies Green even discusses how to get CPS running in schools in a realistic way What better way to an educator's heart?
