Incredible Teachers: Nurturing Children’s Social, Emotional, and Academic Competence

The Incredible Teachers book is for day care providers and teachers of young children ages 3-8 years. The book presents a variety of creative classroom management strategies for teachers to use to meet children’s developmental milestones and teach emotional literacy, friendship skills, self-regulation and problem solving skills.

Teachers are encouraged to set up individualized programs for children who are at risk due to learning difficulties, hyperactivity, impulsivity, attention deficit disorder, language and reading delays, depressive or aggressive behavior. The author shows how teachers can integrate individualized, culturally sensitive interventions for such children in the mainstream classroom. The book also shows how to partner with parents to promote their children’s social, emotional, language and academic competence.

This book is the text for teachers using the Incredible Years Teacher Classroom Management Program and the Child Dinosaur Emotional, Social and Problem Solving Curriculum. It can be useful as a stand-alone guide for teachers and caregivers.
