Unconditional Positive Regard: The Science, Psychology, and Strategies That Create A High-Performing Classroom (book) $89.95
Relationships are at the heart of high-performing classrooms, and unconditional positive regard (UPR) is a key strategy used to build and develop strong relationships. Bringing UPR into classrooms and schools will give teachers more time to teach and students more time to learn. The authors demonstrate how to build a classroom full of respect, empathic understanding, compassion, fairness, trust, patience, self-control – all key components of UPR, and all necessary for authentic, culturally responsive, classrooms. The authors provide doable strategies and activities to implement and nurture each of these components so that teachers may bring unconditional positive regard into their classrooms and the wider school community and enjoy high-performing classrooms.
