"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

“What has impressed me the most about Positive Discipline is its philosophy of optimism in students taking ownership of their behavior. Supporting this philosophy, Positive Discipline Tools for Teachers offers a plethora of teacher tools and practices that are effective and applicable for all age groups.”
-Joseph P. Marshall, head of Trinity School
"As a PK-8 principal in an urban public school, I've found Positive Discipline Tools for Teachers to be both eminently accessible and incredibly powerful. When implemented well, the tools shared here have the power to transform student lives, teacher practice, classroom communities, and your school."
-Nate Manaen, principal
“This book should be in every guidance counselor’s toolbox. If the leadership in every school implemented this classroom management style, it would make their jobs a lot easier!”
-Nancy Page, director of guidance at St. Johns Country Day School
"To meet the social, emotional, and academic needs of the children in my classroom, I rely on Positive Discipline methods to inspire and motivate students to be active members of our classroom community. The easy to implement tools in Positive Discipline Tools for Teachers make an immediate impact, allow opportunities for engaged learning, as well as equip students with strategies to be solution seekers, creative thinkers, ethical decision makers, and collaborators who know how to communicate effectively and respectfully."
-Margaret Gunter, fourth grade teacher at Mount Vernon Presbyterian School, Atlanta, GA
"We have been using Positive Discipline in our school since we opened in 1999 because the respectful, holistic Positive Discipline approach fits so well with the Montessori philosophy. The clearly defined tools in this book, with real-life examples on how to effectively and realistically implement the tools when working with children, will help many teachers experience the success we have enjoyed."
-Karen Simon, director of Montessori School of Celebration

This would make a great gift for any teacher!
In short, there is something for every teacher in this book. The cartoons and quotations peppered throughout the book break up the text well. The author's tone is conversational and easy to read and understand. I received this book from the Blogging for Books program in exchange for this review.
**I received a copy of the book for my review from Blogging for Books but all opinions here are my own and my review was not required.
Anyways, in starting this book I found it wasn't going to be overly useful as I'm not a 'real teacher'. The topics covered are Understanding Your Students, Foundational Pricinicles, Forming A Bond, Classroom Management, Conflict Resolution, and general Teacher Skills. Teachers now-a-days wear so many hats - teacher, counselor, therapist, discipliner, role-model, etc. Children need so much emotional help as well as educational help - I believe this book does a good job helping teachers look beyond the surfacey actions to think about underlying causes. I'd recommend this book to a teacher - probably not homeschool mothers though.
Thank you Blogging for Books for a few review copy!!
I can see myself and educators at my school using this as a handy reference to be read over and over. Thank you!
