This is our most widely adopted classroom management book. It provides an overview of what teaching is all about—focusing on the important management skills every teacher needs. A unique feature of the book’s practical approach is the use of scripts that outline specifically how to teach students the various procedures. Ultimately students learn to manage their own behavior without depending on teacher supervision. The authors stress that these procedures will help prevent problem behaviors, keep students on task, and make the best use of everyone’s time and energy.
“The authors have presented in a concise and very readable format, a step-by-step approach to implementing a wide range of management procedures designed to significantly increase student time-on-task.”
—Richard Shields, NASSP Bulletin, National Association of School Psychologists
“The writers’ positive approach to education is encouraging. Their suggestions are manageable and leave one eager to employ them. Teachers should find these procedures to be very usable.”
—Deborah Simmons, Direct Instruction News
“The authors have put together a very readable text for teachers at both the preservice and inservice level. . . highly recommended for courses in discipline and classroom management.”
