All too often teachers struggle to meet the needs of students with emotional/behavioral needs. In many instances these struggles are based on a fundamental misalignment of purpose. By focusing attention on the keynote relational, reflective, and connective elements of teacher, students manifesting emotional/behavioral needs can be far more successful in school. This issue of NASET's Practical Teacher was written by Christopher Gough and Greg M. Romaneck. It highlights five areas where teachers can concentrate efforts aimed at establishing the environment necessary to encourage student learning and growth. These tips focus on cognitive strategies, relational foci, limit setting, and instructional approaches linked to metacognitive teacher behavior.
