The course Motivating and Managing Disruptive Students centers of the work of Brian Mendler, author of “Watch Your Mouth.”  

 

Mendler has extensive experience working with challenging students in general education, self-contained, and inclusion settings. "Watch Your Mouth" features strategies for preventing and responding to difficult, disruptive, defiant, and unmotivated behavior. 

 

He is also the author of the best-seller "That One Kid" and has co-authored "Strategies for Successful Classroom Management," "Power Struggles," "TIPS for Teachers" and "Turning Tough Parents into Strong Partners." The books provide practical, in-depth ideas for working with unmotivated and disruptive students.

 

Mendler is a volunteer with the Big Brothers/Big Sisters and Special Olympics programs.
