Am about halfway through the book, and so-so on it right now... I think it might be better for adults than adolescents and teenagers, unless the kid reading it likes to read. I think it may be more text than many kids would want to read. In terms of explanation of phenomena and strategies, I think it is very good (Again -- I still have about half the book to read).
In terms of the metaphor of the tiger, I can see how this might work, but for most students in American schools, I'm not sure if this is too abstract somehow -- And also, tigers are often used as mascots and in positive, non-threatening ways in our culture. My license is in ESL and last week I was in a classroom with some students from African countries. I could see how students from Africa or India might have more first-hand experience with the idea of a tiger being truly threatening. For myself, a tiger does not bring up negative, scary connotations, so in that regard, the title doesn't "work" for me 100%.
It's a useful book though. I'd like to find more materials that can help in working with students to lower stress and anxiety and to help them develop strategies they can use both in and outside of school.
definitively with the classic "stressors" in the lives
of most students. The presentation provides practical
coping strategies to identify stress and deal with it
in a timely and constructive manner. There is coverage
of the breathing techniques for greater oxygenation,
as well as strategies to handle limited time and
seemingly hostile peers and relevant others.
The book advises students to do the following:
o be assertive so that we have the time to attend to priorities
o build personal relationships
o take calculated risks in our decision-making
o make decisions over analysis paralysis
o stay healthy because we cannot do difficult sustained work
unless we are healthy
o deal with fear constructively and within the bounds of
people and things we can control
Overall, the volume would be a tremendous resource in order
to assist students with personal planning at school and elsewhere.
