|||Calm, Alert, and Learning: Classroom Strategies for classroom regulation, by Stuart Shanker |
Recent research tells us that one of the keys to student success is
self-regulation the ability to monitor and modify emotions, to focus or
shift attention, to control impulses, to tolerate frustration or delay
gratification. But can a child’s ability to self-regulate be improved?
Canadas leading expert on self-regulation, Dr. Stuart Shanker, knows
it can and that, as educators, we have an important role to play in
helping students develop this crucial ability. Distinguished Research
Professor at York University and Past President of the Council for
Early Child Development, Dr. Shanker leads us through an exploration of
the five major domains, what they are, how they work, what they look
like in the classroom, and what we can do to help students strengthen
in that domain.
