Emotional Literacy

The heart of classroom management

By Patricia Sherwood

Emotional Literacy is a pioneering book for primary school teachers, counselors, and therapists who wish to develop emotional literacy skills in classroom situations. The book provides resources for managing the 'feeling' life of children and offers: a classroom management model that creates opportunities for healing emotions, rather than emotions being denied, repressed, discounted, or excluded from the process . an understanding of the non-verbal languages and skills needed for children to identify the basic human feelings of anger, grief, aloneness, fear, judgment, and the bully and victim behaviors arising from such feelings . group classroom exercises that help to reduce the possibility of major behavioral problems or psychological disturbances . simple self-managed processes that give children basic skills to identify and manage their own emotions.
