qA new and practical way to look at students' negative attitudes toward school and schoolwork...and what you can do about it!q qChanging Attitudes is the first and only handbook to address the growing problem of negative attitudes. By using informal logic (critical thinking) you can now correct negative attitudes and thereby motivate your students to learn. The book lays out a three-step strategy: (1) Identify negative attitudes; (2) Show students how to express those attitudes as ideas; (3) Help students analyze the ideas and reach their own conclusions as to their validity. If some of your students hate school and lack respect for teachers, here's how to start correcting their negative attitudes!q qThe book offers techniques for identifying and classifying the most harmful attitudes, to expose the fallacious thinking underlying them; contemporary examples to help you and your students understand and use informal logic to critically examine negative attitudes; tips on guiding students in analyzing their negative thoughts, so they can understand why they feel that way - and why their attitudes are wrong; and suggestions on modifying classroom methods, to: (1) reduce the number of negative attitudes and (2) transform negative attitudes into positive ones.q--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
