Here is an easy-to-read and inspiring text that explores the nature of young people and the effects traditional discipline strategies have on them. The author recommends humanistic approaches that promote personal growth in students rather than the common system of reward and punishment that aggravates underlying psychological issues and encourages resentment, retaliation, apathy, and failure. Includes: an academic review of educational psychology theories, step-by-step instructions on how to discipline students humanely and effectively, expressive artwork that illustrates how the principles of psychology manifest in the lives of real students in real schools. The ideas and stories emanate from the experiences of a K-12 teacher whose personal life has been profoundly intertwined with the teaching profession. This book will be of interest to practicing and pre-service teachers of all subject areas and grade levels.

MEDIA REVIEWS
(Gnezda has) discovered that troubled students often benefit from compassion and freedom to create than from punishment. ... But is Gnezda's altruistic approach successful? Her blue jays' stories speak for themselves. One is of an emotionally troubled boy who drew violent images. Later, he explained that drawing the pictures kept him from acting out. * NEA Today *
Nicole Gnezda does an excellent job of exploring the nature of our hard-to-reach students, the blue jays in our classrooms. ... Teaching Difficult Students would be good reading for teachers and principals, especially as they look for ways to communicate with those students whose in-school behavior is so deeply connected to the difficulties in their personal lives. * School Administrator *
