    A positive and calm classroom environment enriches the teaching and learning experience for teachers and children alike. Using his invaluable experience working in pupil referral units and as a head teacher, David Wright shows how the ideal primary classroom environment can be achieved through many useful practical ideas and suggestions. 

    Backed by up-to-date research on how we learn and how best to teach, the clear and concise chapters cover broad teaching skills including:

    • how to create a positive learning environment where pupils feel valued, prepared to leave their 'comfort zone', and willing to ask questions
    • understanding what effects certain aspects of your behaviour can have on children
    • behaviour management strategies that allow the children to take responsibility for their actions
    • making the most of colleagues, parents and your community to provide memorable learning experiences.

    Written by a teacher for teachers, Classroom Karma is essential reading for all those looking to establish a successful learning environment where pupils feel valued and motivated in the primary classroom and beyond.
