Overview

On the New Edition of Building Classroom Discipline

“I feel the book is the best overview of Classroom Management for an entry-level teacher. It has a strong theoretical basis and provides students with a sound overview of classroom management. . . . [E]ach chapter is easy to follow and . . . [t]he case examples and the application examples strengthen each chapter. . . . I feel that Chapter 13 and 14 provide the students with a formula that helps them determine their knowledge of CM and the steps they can take to properly develop their own approach. . . . I like the format of Chapter 12, which looks at the eight fundamental questions in discipline. . . . It allows the students to become more cognizant of how they can apply CM in their future classes. . . . A true gem of a book!”

--Aubrey Fine, CA Poly University

“I like the approach this new edition takes. The author presents information that is accurate and up-to-date with the research in the field. I particularly like the author’s attention to detail, as he interacted with the authorities in the field (who were featured in this textbook) to ensure their points of view were accurate. . . . The activities at the end of the chapters (tests, self tests, case studies) were great reinforcements of the content covered in the chapters, enabling the students to apply what they have learned. . . . [Two things] I like about the new edition that the [previous edition did] not have [are] the chapter on self-assessment, as well as [the] inclusion of the Be the Teacher Scenarios in all the chapters. My students have enjoyed the Be the Teacher practice exercises a lot, and I am glad that with the new edition they will have even more opportunities to practice.”

--Madalina Tanase, University of North Florida

“Not only does Charles provide the essence of each model, but he focuses on how to execute the model in a classroom. The step-by-step approach is exceptional. . . . I believe the 11th edition is much more suited to college teaching in all aspects. The organizations of the chapters are much more ordered and the less explained/known theorists have been omitted. . . . Chapter 14 is a welcomed, refined addition! We have our students design their Classroom Management Plan and this certainly will provide them with an outline aligned with the content from the text.”

--Deborah Burris, Southern Illinios University – Carbondale

On MyEducationLab for Classroom Management

“I have used MyEducationLab for Classroom Management in the past. I find that this material is useful in expanding the learning experience outside of t he classroom and provides some great ideas for further explanation, exploration, and application of concepts learned in the class. I have also used Simulations in Classroom Management as part of my course. I do find them to be reasonable starting places to understand how to apply a theory to a classroom situation.”
