Inhaltsangabe: In this groundbreaking book, Eric Toshalis explores student resistance through a variety of perspectives, arguing that oppositional behaviors can be not only instructive but productive. All too often treated as a matter of compliance, student resistance can also be understood as a form of engagement, as young people confront and negotiate new identities in the classroom environment. The focus of teachers’ efforts, Toshalis says, should not be about “managing” adolescents but about learning how to read their behavior and respond to it in developmentally productive, culturally responsive, and democratically enriching ways.
Noting that the research literature is scattered across fields, Toshalis draws on four domains of inquiry: theoretical, psychological, political, and pedagogical. The result is a resource that can help teachers address this pervasive classroom challenge in ways that enhance student agency, motivation, engagement, and academic achievement.
The coauthor ofUnderstanding Youth: Adolescent Development for Educators (Harvard Education Press, 2006), Toshalis blends accessible explanations of theory and research with vignettes of interactions among educators and students. In Make Me!, Toshalis helps teachers perceive possibility, rather than pathology, in student resistance.
From the Back Cover:
In this groundbreaking book, Eric Toshalis explores student resistance through a variety of perspectives, arguing that oppositional behaviors can be not only instructive by also productive. The focus of teachers’ efforts, Toshalis says, should be on reading rather than “managing” adolescent behavior and responding to it in developmentally productive and culturally responsive ways. Toshalis effectively synthesizes theory and research with vignettes of interactions among educators and students to show the possibility, rather than pathology, in student resistance.
“With poignance and skill, Toshalis shepherds educators away from yearning fro prescriptive classroom management heuristics to spaces where they embrace the ‘remaking’ of themselves in their journey to serve, build, and respond to the humanity of students. Make Me! is a pre-service and in-service teacher education gem that will surely improve the way classroom management is taught, understood, operationalized, and practiced.” — H. Richard Milner IV, Helen Faison Endowed Chair of Urban Education, University of Pittsburgh
“Eric Toshalis offers a research-based, humanistic, and enlightened perspective and alternative that every school counselor, teacher, and administrator should read.” — Angela Valenzuela, professor, educational policy and planning program, University of Texas at Austin
“Toshalis bears witness to the charged relationships between teachers and adolescents, making sense of the frustrating dynamics of resistance through a range of thoughtful perspectives. His smart, empathic, and actionable synthesis breathes new life into the national conversation about school and classroom culture.” — Kathleen Cushman, cofounder, What Kids Can Do
Eric Toshalis is on the faculty of the Graduate School of Education and Counseling at Lewis & Clark College.
