This book provides detailed, step-by-step methods for catechists on how to manage classroom behavior with love and grace. Catechists learn the time-tested methods for classroom discipline used by professional teachers, but applied specifically to the particular challenges of the parish religious education setting.
The book is unique in that it teaches catechists how to think through their approach to classroom management, how to assess new situations, and how to choose the right tools to solve problems as they arise. By developing skills rather than memorizing tips, catechists can be confident of their ability to respond to the changing needs of their students.
