Classroom management is a topic of enduring concern for teachers, administrators, and the public. It consistently ranks as the first or second most serious educational problem in the eyes of the general public, and beginning teachers consistently rank it as their most pressing concern during their early teaching years. Management problems continue to be a major cause of teacher burnout and job dissatisfaction. Strangely, despite this enduring concern on the part of educators and the public, few researchers have chosen to focus on classroom management or to identify themselves with this critical field. The Handbook of Classroom Management has four primary goals: 1) to clarify the term classroom management; 2) to demonstrate to scholars and practitioners that there is a distinct body of knowledge that directly addresses teachers’ managerial tasks; 3) to bring together disparate lines of research and encourage conversations across different areas of inquiry; and 4) to promote a vigorous agenda for future research in this area. To this end, 47 chapters have been organized into 10 sections, each chapter written by a recognized expert in that area. Cutting across the sections and chapters are the following themes: *First, positive teacher-student relationships are seen as the very core of effective classroom management. *Second, classroom management is viewed as a social and moral curriculum. *Third, external reward and punishment strategies are not seen as optimal for promoting academic and social-emotional growth and self-regulated behavior. *Fourth, to create orderly, productive environments teachers must take into account student characteristics such as age, developmental level, race, ethnicity, cultural background, socioeconomic status, and ableness. Like other research handbooks, the Handbook of Classroom Management provides an indispensable reference volume for scholars, teacher educators, in-service practitioners, and the academic libraries serving these audiences. It is also appropriate for graduate courses wholly or partly devoted to the study of classroom management.

The field of classroom management is not a neatly organized line of inquiry, but rather consists of many disparate topics and orientations that draw from multiple disciplines. Given the complex nature of the field, this comprehensive second edition of the Handbook of Classroom Management is an invaluable resource for those interested in understanding it. This volume provides up-to-date summaries of research on the essential topics from the first edition, as well as fresh perspectives and chapters on new topics. It is the perfect tool for both graduate students and practitioners interested in a field that is fascinating but not immediately accessible without the proper guidance.

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

Secondary Classroom Management presents an introduction to classroom management in secondary schools. Written in a lively, engaging, conversational style, it combines what research has to say about effective classroom management with knowledge culled from practice. This text focuses on real decisions made by real teachers as they manage the complex environment of the secondary classroom. The text integrates the thinking and the actual management practices of four real secondary school teachers into discussions of research-based management principles. Readers come to "know" these teachers. We hear about the classes they teach and about the physical constraints of their rooms. We hear them reflect on their rules and routines and watch as they teach these rules and routines to students. We listen as they talk about motivating students and building community, and as they discuss appropriate ways to deal with misbehavior. Secondary Classroom Management is well-organized and more comprehensive than many classroom management texts, with chapters on building safer, more caring classrooms; working with families; using time effectively; motivation; working with troubled students; and violence prevention. It also addresses the managerial challenges involved in a variety of instructional formats, such as recitations, discussions, and groupwork.
