Nonviolent Communication A Language of Life Book Description:

What is Violent Communication? If "violent" means acting in ways that result in hurt or harm, then much of how we communicate—judging others, bullying, having racial bias, blaming, finger pointing, discriminating, speaking without listening, criticizing others or ourselves, name-calling, reacting when angry, using political rhetoric, being defensive or judging who's "good/bad" or what's "right/wrong" with people—could indeed be called "violent communication." What is Nonviolent Communication? Nonviolent Communication is the integration of four things: • Consciousness: a set of principles that support living a life of compassion, collaboration, courage, and authenticity • Language: understanding how words contribute to connection or distance • Communication: knowing how to ask for what we want, how to hear others even in disagreement, and how to move toward solutions that work for all • Means of influence: sharing "power with others" rather than using "power over others" Nonviolent Communication serves our desire to do three things: • Increase our ability to live with choice, meaning, and connection • Connect empathically with self and others to have more satisfying relationships • Sharing of resources so everyone is able to benefit

Authentic Classroom Management Book Description:

""It is essential for classroom teachers to be reflective. It is critical that they be aware of their own biases and prejudices. Larrivee does an excellent job of gently guiding the teacher through a look at his/her past. The first chapter creates a comfort zone with which the teacher continues to look at his/her past and consequently at his/her treatment of children."" Dr. Patricia A. Pintar, St. Mary-of-the-Woods College "Authentic Classroom Management" addresses the basics of classroom management by narrowing the gap between theory and practice to provide realistic and collaborative management options. This easy-to-read, practical text presents a broad theoretical background while focusing on the belief that effective classroom management requires careful preparation and goes beyond learning discrete skills. The text promotes a multi-dimensional and reflective perspective for managing classrooms that will prepare prospective and in-service teachers to successfully manage today's diverse classrooms. Highlighting a comprehensive range of strategies and philosophies, the text encourages alternative ways to support positive classroom behaviors. Its many exercises offer opportunity for skill development through reflection and self-questioning, emphasizing proactive ways of interacting with students to create and sustain a supportive learning community.

Nonviolence Speaks Book Description:

This book addresses the power of popular nonviolent action against repression, aggression, and oppression. A crucial aspect to effective nonviolent action is communication. Activists need to be able to contact each other and to mobilize support from other parts of the world. However, within the nonviolence literature, communication has been almost entirely neglected, while within the communication literature, nonviolent action is seldom mentioned. This is the first major study to focus on the joint dynamics of nonviolence and communication. Three case studies are examined: the popular action that forced the resignation of Indonesian President Suharto in 1998, the successful people's resistance to the Soviet coup in 1991, and the successful internationally coordinated campaign against the Multilateral Agreement on Investment in 1988. In each case, special attention is given to the role of communication in the struggle. Attention is then turned to theory. Surveys are made of nonviolence and communication theories, probing for insights relevant to the nonviolence-communication nexus. Gradually a model for analyzing people's communication is developed. The insights from theory are then used to prose a set of steps by which activist groups can analyze communication and develop effective communication strategies
