Modern society has many temptations which draw a child from a commitment to a Torah life style. Today more than ever a mechanech bears the dual burden of teaching a subject and at the same time instilling a love for Torah and all that it represents. Both of these goals can be achieved only when there is class discipline. Merely controlling a class and teaching the material is simply not enough. More than any other aspect of classroom teaching, it is the problem of discipline which causes many otherwise dedicated young men and women to throw their hands up in despair and abandon the teaching profession. This book is a blend of practical advice on how to run a classroom, together with common sense counsel on how to build a meaningful and long-lasting bond with students. It should be required reading for teachers, both in order to help them gain a new perspective on the vital role which they play in the future of the Jewish people, and to offer fresh insights into the day-to-day problems and challenges they face in the classroom.
