Abstract:

"In Teaching the Restless, master teacher Chris Mercogliano issues an urgent call for a shift in how our society perceives hyperactive (ADHD) children - away from theories of faulty brain chemistry and toward an understanding of children's lives. This is the first book by a teacher about one school's unique approach to teaching these special children." "Mercogliano codirects the Albany Free School in Albany, New York. There, he and his faculty have developed numerous ways to help hyperactive children relax, focus, modulate emotional expression, make responsible choices, and forge lasting friendships - all prerequisites for learning - without assigning them pathological labels or resorting to the use of biopsychiatric drugs like Ritalin." "Teaching the Restless profiles a handful of Free School students, six boys and three girls. All were either labeled and drugged in their previous schools, or would have been had they not thrown in their lot with the Free School. While in Mercogliano's mind there is no such thing as a "typical" child, these nine kids represent the multititudes across the country - estimates currently run as high as 6 million - who have been diagnosed with learning and behavioral disorders and prescribed corresponding drugs."--Jacket.
