Additional Book Details

"I found myself saying ′Amen!′ continuously as point after point was right on target with my experience and perspective. The authors present and thoroughly discuss such vital teacher attributes as empathy, humor, relationships, reflection, self-discovery, self-awareness, and motivation. This book would be an excellent focus for a faculty on professional development days."

What kind of teacher are YOU?

Are you an emotionally intelligent teacher who engages your students in learning? Because teaching behaviors and personalities can affect student achievement, teachers who develop their emotional awareness and interpersonal skills are better able to manage their classrooms and promote student success.

Based on Daniel Goleman′s five components of emotional intelligence, this guide shows how self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, social awareness, and relationship management can help teachers increase their effectiveness in the classroom. The authors provide research, case studies, and essential tools that help teachers:

Understand how their conscious and unconscious behaviors affect the learning environmentRefine their verbal and nonverbal communication skillsManage their feelings and frustrationsInterpret student behaviors, developing insight into how students perceive teachersHone their presentation skills

Becoming an Emotionally Intelligent Teacher includes practical activities and exercises that are perfect for enhancing your emotional intelligence independently or as part of a professional development opportunity.
