This is the very best material we've yet encountered on classroom discipline, so we grabbed it!
Eminently readable, practical and 'common sensible'. The authors speak from the experience and wisdom accumulated through their years as teachers and principals. They maintain - and they are right - that it is much easier to establish classroom control than to recapture it once it has been lost and that a serene, emotionally intact classroom leads to productive learning and feelings of security and self-worth in students.
They leave nothing to chance and they deal in specifics - how to gain control and keep it, how to teach youngsters to self-start, how to plan ahead for possible misbehaviour, teacher voice and attitude and much, much more. It's all included in this user-friendly, nifty little book.
