Preventing Classroom Discipline Problems is a handbook, with its own self-improvement exercises, for all the skills needed to implement successful classroom management and eliminate discipline problems. It features a unique training video and CD both cued to the book for: education workshops, administrators, teachers, and education students. The video can be shown at faculty meetings, education workshops, classes, etc., and the CD can be used for independent training at each student or teachers' private computer. With access to Online, Confidential Help, and a professional seminar, from the author, a national consultant on Classroom Management, at: http://www.ClassroomManagementOnline.com/ The video/CD demonstrates both the ineffective and effective teacher with real classroom discipline problems. These scenes are spontaneously acted out by real teachers and student-teachers. Instead of following a written script, they act out how their real disruptive students would actually behave, and what they, the teachers, would actually say in these classroom situations. If "the teacher" in the scene does something that is ineffective, what you will see is how their real students would actually respond. If, on the other hand, the teacher is effective, then you'll see how their real students would actually change their behavior. These materials (book, video, CD) do not just help with handling discipline problems, but also help educators diagnose the causes of discipline problems, and thereby help with the prevention of disruptive behavior (rather than just controlling discipline problems) for more effective classroom management. All the suggestions can be implemented without asking educators to change their personal teaching styles, and without the need for a school to revamp its entire program (as some discipline programs require). The book and video/CD can be used by individual teachers and administrators who wish to cut down on referrals to the of

Addressing the increasing number of culturally and linguistically diverse students in today’s schools, Behavior and Classroom Management in the Multicultural Classroom, by Terry L. Shepherd and Diana Linn, provides general and special education teachers with the knowledge, skills, and strategies to make the proactive, active, and reactive interventions necessary to create a positive classroom environment in which all students can learn. Going beyond the traditional rules and hierarchy of consequences and reinforcements, the book demonstrates how to incorporate basic classroom management plans, functional behavioral analysis, functional behavioral assessments, and behavioral intervention plans into the development and implementation of response-to-intervention and school-wide positive behavior support programs. In every chapter, the authors use real world examples and case studies to explore how language and culture affect students’ responses to behavior and classroom management. Unique chapters cover social skills training and collaborating with families of diverse students.

Designed for pre-service teachers and teachers new to the field of ELT, Volume II and its companion are companion textbook, Volume I, are volumes organized around the key question: What do teachers need to know and be able to do in order for their students to learn English? Volume I covers the characteristics of the context in which teachers work, how English works and how it is learned, and the teacher’s role in the larger professional sphere of English language education. Volume II covers the three main facets of teaching: planning, instructing, and assessing. The focus throughout is on outcomes, that is, student learning. The texts work for teachers across different contexts (countries where English is the dominant language, one of the official languages, or taught as a foreign language); different levels (elementary/primary, secondary, college or university, or adult education), and different learning purposes (general English, workplace English, English for academic purposes, or English for specific purposes).
