The only book to focus on the use of language models to improve classroom management, Making Your Words Work offers a large repertoire of linguistic approaches to improve communication between teacher and pupil.
It provides a robust rationale of the causes of anxiety and dysfunctional behaviours, especially useful in situations where the pupil is a potentially disruptive influence. It also covers the latest developments in effective teaching through the modification of language use. Developing the skills and behaviour management strategies in this book will promote learning, improve relationships with pupils and result in a happier, more productive classroom.
