This latest new edition of Effective Classroom Management is written for new teachers and those who train and guide them. It combines sound practical advice on lesson organisation and teaching methods with an exploration of teachers' feelings about themselves and the children they teach. In this second edition, classroom management is considered from four aspects: management in the classroom; mediation with individuals; modification of behaviour and monitoring school discipline.
From reviews of the first edition:'The authors combine the virtues of good stimulating lecturing with obvious recent firsthand experience of classrooms … every school would benefit from a copy … good value for a student or probationer teacher - to derive comfort, common sense, new ideas and explanations, support, and a sense of proportion.' - Education
'For the supportive and yet challenging stance on which this book is based it would get a vote for Birmingham from me every time.' - Therapeutic Care and Education
(2nd Ed)'This is a very readable book that should be recommended reading for all members of staff. ..it is a very useful addition to the teacher's library and particularly helpful to the newly qualified teacher and those who are mentoring those teachers.' - Managing Schools Today
