Description:

William Glasser, M.D., puts his successful choice theory to work in our schools--with a new approach in increasing student motivation. "Dr. Glasser translates choice theory into a productive, classroom model of team learning with emphasis on satisfaction and excitement. Working in small teams, students find that knowledge contributes to power, friendship and fun. Because content and the necessary student collaboration skills must be taught, teachers need to develop skills if they are to use this model successfully. The dividends are 'turned-on ' students and satisfied teachers." --Madeline Hunter, University of California at Los Angeles "Choice Theory in the Classroom is a landmark book, without question one of the most important and useful books for teachers to appear in a long while. Written with rare lucidity and grace, the book has numerous instantly usable ideas that will contribute fundamentally to the success of classroom teachers. William Glasser combines his extensive theoretical expertise and wide practical experience to provide a practical and illuminating guide for teachers [that] should be required reading in every college of education in the country." --David and Roger Johnson, University of Minnesota "Choice Theory in the Classroom presents an insightful analysis of what is wrong with traditional school and what need to be done about it. Dr. Glasser gives a compelling rationale for the use of learning-teams in schools to capture the excitement and commitment students display in sports but rarely in the classroom. The book is well written and persuasive. I hope every teacher in America buys it, believes it, and behaves accordingly." --Robert Slavin, John Hopkins University

William Glasser, who was born in Cleveland, Ohio, first earned a degree in chemical engineering from the then Case Institute of Technology and later became a psychiatrist. He found himself doubting much of the conventional psychoanalysis, in which often the patient is seen as the helpless victim of past traumas, and insisted that the cobwebs of the past be brushed aside and that the patient develop a plan of action for the future. Glasser's conviction that success breeds success and that failure breeds failure led him to develop his reality therapy, a remedy for people for whom conventional psychotherapy does not work and a prescription of use to people regardless of their circumstances. Glasser has also done much for and within the school system, dealing with the issues of motivation, quality in the school, and problems of delinquency. Glasser's books have been translated into many languages. He has wide experience as a psychiatrist in Los Angeles and has been a consultant to the school system there.
