    One thought on “Lost at School: Why Our Kids with Behavioral Challenges are Falling Through the Cracks and How We Can Help Them”

    1. Having fairly recently completed my bachelor s degree in education, and remembering how little anyone can tell you about classroom management behavioural issues, I think this text should be mandatory reading for all who want to teach big statement eh Let me try to back that up Dr Greene s main idea is that kids do well if they can It s hard to believe that so many adults don t agree When a child is misbehaving for the 2nd or 22nd time it can be difficult to remember that he she is not trying to [...]

    2. I skimmed through parts of this book because it repeated itself, but I have been using Ross Greene s Plan B in my classroom and have seen the changes in my students I love the empathy step, where you really dive in to see what is troubling the student I ve found that most of the time my thinking was incorrect You cannot just assume you know what the student s issue is THEN, and only then, can you begin to problem solve together This gives the child the ultimate buy in They are helping to problem [...]

    3. I liked the author s focus on how acting out kids are lacking the cognitive skills they need to behave appropriately there s a useful list of what skills kids may be struggling with I liked his proposal of using collaborative problem solving CPS to address kids behaviors Even though CPS is mostly common sense, I thought he did a nice job of spelling out how to make it work.I was not convinced that CPS is the panacea he implies Also, he didn t really address how to teach lacking skills though I e [...]

    4. A good strategy to implement but I felt it could have been covered in one chapter or a short article.lots of common sense stuff that many good teachers do.

    5. Do you believe that kids do as well as they are able or as well as they want to Dr Ross Greene believes that kids do as well as they are able and oftentimes, adults treat the problem as if the kids are wanting to misbehave The truth is that kids who have the most behavioral challenges do so because they lack the skills necessary to behave appropriately and the disciplinary actions most often taken suspension or detention for school, or grounding, loss of privileges, etc for home don t make a dif [...]

    6. Although I am only at page 60 presently, I am finding many of the ideas present in this book interesting however at this point in the book I am having trouble trying to formulate HOW I would actually effectively go about implementing some of these ideas in a classroom setting As well as implementing them in coordination with other colleagues.I am finding yet again another book written about a topic I am very much passionate about yet mostly written for a non Secondary audience.At points I am ver [...]

    7. Dr Greene s approach is a humane, respectful and practical alternative to the ineffective discipline strategies we have been using in our schools for decades Dr Greene offers a new conceptual framework based on research for understanding the difficulties of kids with behavioral challenges and explains why traditional discipline is not effective in addressing these difficulties His work is based on the simple and positive notion that kids do well if they can Many kids just lack the skills to beha [...]

    8. Like many would be reformers, Greene starts off on the wrong foot by making some educators the villains of the parable a format which is much better used in the Arbinger Institute s Leadership and Self Deception Getting Out of the Box and The Anatomy of Peace Resolving the Heart of Conflict If I wanted to reform any institution from within, I would NOT start off with a hearty you guys suck position a bit too much the stereotypical male coach The author should revise this and allow the educators [...]

    9. It might not apply to every difficult situation at school, but it still should be required reading for every educator at the very least, those who are called upon to provide intervention for students with difficult behavior problems Sometimes, all it takes is to really listen to the student I had the opportunity to use almost the exact conversation on page 118 with a student who had already exploded and was out of the classroom I listened to him, reflected, invited to come up with a solution, an [...]

    10. I think this book is a valuable addition to teachers knowledge As a sub, I see that dealing with kids with behavioral challenges is consuming a huge amount of teacher time and resources Most of the elementary schools I sub in now have not only a counselor, but also a behavior specialist If this Plan B model can help solve some of these problems, I am all for it Although, again, as a sub, I don t have much chance to use it, except for the emergency model.

    11. I was given this book to read as summer homework by our school principal Obviously, the book resonated with our principal but it does not speak to me Especially, since it resulted in taking yet time out of my precious time off 1.5 weeks to read the book 2.5 weeks of other summer training As a result, I have a very negative attitude about this book.Before I began reading the book, I read many of the reviews posted by readers I found it interesting at the time that the majority of positive review [...]

    12. This book got a bit boring in places but it is an excellent resource for those who want to be very efficient in the model of CPS I spent a week at an advanced CPS training with Dr Green this summer and found him to be authentically concerned with the welfare of kids in schools who just don t seem to be getting their needs met in order for them to do well I work at a therapeutic school where we use this model as our primary treatment modality and although it is time consuming, it works when it is [...]

    13. This is a wonderful book I read it as a parent, not a teacher, but I still learned a great deal from it It gave me some wonderful new ideas about how to deal with my son s challenging behaviors Grounding, time outs, and loss of privileges only get you so far when dealing with a kid with severe adhd and ocd This book opened my eyes to a whole new form of behavior modification where the focus is on teaching the kid the coping skills he needs to avoid the undesirable behavior, rather than just puni [...]

    14. I have some questions about some of Greene s ideas, but his central premise is hard to argue with Kids don t violate the rules because they are broken They violate them because they don t really know how to follow them He advocates a structured from of problem solving with kids that allows them a role in coming up with a plan to teach them lagging skills I think most teachers would like this book He writes in clear language, and uses an ongoing narrative to illustrate his ideas.

    15. One of the best books I ve read on teaching kids with behavioral challenges Shifting our perspective towards the belief that Kids do well if they can changes how the adults in their lives prevent and respond to misbehavior It left me with some unanswered questions on practical applications, but overall is a great resource.

    16. Really interesting book about treating children s challenging behaviors like learning disabilities and dealing with them through collaborative problem solving rather than impositions of adult will It s geared toward teachers than parents, but applicable for both and and is probably something I ll come back to when actually parenting.

    17. This book the philosophy method within it are game changers If I could give it than 5 stars, I would Lives hang in the balance, we must reach our challenging kids My constant companion The words, Kids do well if they can Let s all start figuring out what skill those tough kids, and adults, in our lives are lacking, or behind, on and engage them in helping find solutions that build those skills.

    18. As a fifth year teacher, I appreciated the approach that this book has for dealing with student s challenging behavior I come from a RJ restorative justice background, and my school believes in RJ as our means to deal with behavior What struck me was thinking about the student s unsolved problems triggers Us teachers are dealing with so much that it is hard to think that there are times where we ourselves trigger behaviors and we have the power to stop it For anyone thinking that what they ve re [...]

    19. Excellent ideas, in theory Looking forward to seeing how they pan out in practice If a whole school were to get on board I can see how the Collaborative and Proactive Solutions method could make a significant difference in classrooms and in the lives of students It would require commitment on the part of all parties, but would be so worth the effort.

    20. I have mixed feelings about this book On the one hand, I agree that the current system of punishment does not work for most kids But there are certain situations when it is necessary student threatens a teacher, brings weapons to school, etc All things that have happened with my students in these first couple months of school As a licensed mental health and behavioral counselor in an alternative school, I like the idea of a collaborative relationship with students When I meet with each of my stu [...]

    21. I read this for a book study at work In response to a world where discipline doesn t necessarily seem to bring about lasting, positive change in children with challenging behaviors, Dr Greene presents a different conceptual framework for viewing and interacting with those children The premise is that children will do well if they can If they aren t doing well, then that is likely indicative of a skill deficit they have Not only does Dr Greene offer a general for all children and all behaviors ar [...]

    22. This book was an exceptional foray into the modern approach to students who are falling through the cracks in today s approaches to traditional discipline and rewards in situations namely public schools The issue at hand is not readily apparent unless you read a few chapters in, but the bulk of the thesis is that many young people who are constantly dropping out or doing bad in school academically, behaviorally, et al, are suffering from emotional delays They are basically behind in some aspect [...]

    23. Lost at School written by Ross W Greene is about children with behavioral issues In the book it describes situations in school where children act out The book reveals ways to handle situations in schools so they do not get out of hand For example Greene tells a story of a student who acted out in class The teacher did not handle the situation well and the student responded defensively Greene makes us aware that not all kids develop at the same rate When a students responds that they do not know [...]

    24. An important book Essential for educators to read Greene boils down a therapeutic approach to dealing with challenging students that he calls collaborative problem solving, or Plan B He models for the reader what this process can look at one on one with a student, as a whole class, and as a whole school by constructing an ongoing narrative based on the stories of a couple of fictional challenging students Given that he s got a point to make, the narrative is somewhat artificial of course, but it [...]

    25. Excellent book on implementing a conflict resolution style of classroom management in a school Some of the conversations Greene records in this book are trite and too simplistic, but at the heart of this is a different way of dealing with problem kids Greene s theory is that kids who struggle with behaviour do so because they are lacking fundamental skulls like conflict resolution and task persistence By teaching these skills to the children, we will then allow them to better integrate into the [...]

    26. This book reminded me that a core tenant to restorative justice which seems nearly identical to the Collaborative Proactive Solutions model outlined in this book is focusing on the students unsolved problems so that teachers students can focus on developing the lagging skills that fuel this problem Super smart, humane, and disciplinary in the truest sense of the word I d love to true to use the ALSUP with a team try Plan B Maybe I can find a way I also appreciate the fictional narrative woven th [...]

    27. I don t disagree with the premise of the book, that traditional punishments aren t working in a lot of cases and I applaud him for putting the idea out there However, I found the delivery to be condescending and the situations used for examples to be idealistic What about the child that says screw you when you introduce the idea and doesn t stop, no matter how persistent you are Because those children most certainly exist I also don t believe that all children want to succeed but lack the skills [...]

    28. This book has been both enlightening and reassuring It confirms what I have always believed, that to teach a child effectively we must listen to them as well It has also taught me new things and helped me to refine my approach to classroom management That discipline is only useful if it teaches skills and meets the needs of both parties involved, rather than just the adult s That empathy is key to classroom management That finding excuses or causes doesn t define problems or teach us how to over [...]

    29. AMAZING BOOK All teachers should have to read this This book is perfect for the educator who may have heard or experienced parts of the CPS process but not all This book is explaining the whys Now I understand what counselors, admin, eveyone else in the know knows but I didn t I have never had Collaborative Problem Solving explained to me in one setting Empathy, Define Adult Concerns, and Invitation The scenarios that are included help a teacher prepare a way to respond in different situations I [...]

    30. p.8 Consequences don t teach kids the thinking skills they lack or solve the problems that set the stage for their challenging behavior.The strength of the text is the wealth of examples within the CPS model Only during the first quarter of the material does the author recapitulate his research Mr Greene does not present the blow by blow of how he has accumulated information for study thank you Ross Greene The CPS model is educational model for dealing effectively with troublesome students Mr Gr [...]
