This user-friendly resource will help K–12 teachers become more effective classroom managers. Tracey Garrett provides a new perspective that has been well received by thousands of preservice, novice, and veteran teachers. Each chapter of the book concentrates on a key area (physical design, rules and routines, relationships, engaging instruction, and discipline) and focuses on the importance of that particular area in relation to a teacher’s overall classroom management plan. Examples of specific techniques and strategies are presented through three classroom teachers, each representing a different grade level. In addition, four students share their beliefs and experiences related to the different aspects of classroom management and provide unique insight into the lived experience of students in real classrooms in a variety of contexts, including urban and suburban schools. Effective Classroom Management is a concise guide designed to prevent problems that require active discipline before they arise. Book features include classroom examples, case studies, and study questions. There is also an app, Classroom Management Essentials, available from the iTunes store featuring videos of the author and other teachers discussing classroom management strategies and experiences addressed in the book. Tracey Garrett is a professor in the Department of Teacher Education at Rider University in New Jersey where she was recently awarded the university’s Distinguished Teaching Award. “In just over 100 pages, Tracey Garrett has captured the essence of classroom management. I am particularly impressed with her attention to the physical environment of the class, as well as the importance of human relationships in teaching. This book would be an excellent addition to any program in preservice or inservice teacher education.” —Anita Woolfolk Hoy, professor emerita, The Ohio State University “This practically minded book offers an important focus on prevention of classroom management problems. It is unique in its attention to student perspectives on why specific management strategies work and it offers examples of how teachers can use basic management principles across varied grade levels.” —Joan Walker, associate professor, School of Education, co-director, Pforzheimer Faculty Development Center, Pace University “In Effective Classroom Management, the author assembles key practices together with some often-forgotten management components in her messages to practitioners on developing relationships and on hearing student voice. Garrett understands that effective classroom management requires doing the work with people at the forefront of the process.” —Kay Brocato, associate professor, College of Education, Mississippi State University

What is the most effective way of managing pupils' behaviour? The effective management of pupils' behaviour has long been a principle concern, not only for classroom teachers, but for all involved with the management of schools. Finding ways of motivating students, preventing disruption, whilst developing positive relationships, can be difficult to implement. Roland Chaplain argues that a multilevel approach is the key to coping with the diverse pressures of teaching and managing behaviour. This approach recognises the importance of management on individual as well as whole school levels, and not just in terms of teacher-student relationships. This well-organised and thoroughly researched book handles a variety of crucial issues with clarity and vision. A range of topics are discussed in detail, including: * teachers' personal development * whole-school level management and effective strategies to anticipate and eliminate minor disruption * classroom-level management which sets out effective routines designed to promote learning and minimise disruption * individual assessment and intervention with students who have emotional or behavioural problems. The book is enhanced throughout with evidence from contemporary research carried out by teachers and young people, which is used to support the advice and guidance offered. Each chapter includes thought-provoking activities and questions which encourage the reader to evaluate and reflect on their own practice. Teachers, student teachers, and headteachers will find this an indispensable guide.
