“Michael Grinder has given us the management skills needed to successfully reach the hard-to-reach students — we have to reach them to teach them.” ~ Pearl Nitsche, Educational Consultant
With A Cat in the Doghouse, the last in Michael Grinder’s Classroom Management trilogy, he again proves why he’s the go-to-person to learn to deal with the difficult and at-risk children in our classrooms today.

In A Cat in the Doghouse he uses the analogy of our beloved household pets — cats and dogs — so that we can easily understand what motivates all of our students. The techniques and tools Michael shares will transform your classroom into a more humane society.

Years ago as a classroom teacher, Michael discovered our “dog” students love the routine of a traditional classroom, while our “cat” students who love tension and risk tend to be disruptive when they are bored.
Management by power just doesn’t work with our hard-to-reach (cat) students — with A Cat in the Doghouse you will learn what does work to create a happier, safer classroom.
