This ready-reference is perfect for teachers looking for new and different ways to prevent or defuse behavior problems in the classroom. Its simple, easy-to-implement strategies are grounded in research on the connection between the brain, learning, and behavior. The booklet describes 16 Smoothies, each with a sample scenario that can be used at all school grade levels, with one student or a group, and without disrupting classroom routines. Smoothies offer a variety of approaches ranging from enhancing sensory capacity and underlying brain neuro-physiology in a particular student to changing the classroom environment and the teacher’s style for a more positive impact on all students in a class. Although these brain-based strategies are a relatively new approach, every one has been used successfully by countless teachers across the country to de-escalate one unhappy child or to shift a whole classroom from negative to positive energy.

With this valuable guide to dramatically altering negative behavior, teachers can decrease their frustration and help students spend more time learning and less time in the principal’s office.
