Overview

This book is one of a set of eight innovative yet practical resource books for teachers, focussing on the classroom and covering vital skills for primary and secondary teachers. The books are strongly influenced by the findings of numerous research projects during which hundreds of teachers were observed at work. The first editions of the series were best sellers, and these revised second editions of the series will be equally welcomed by teachers eager to improve their teaching skills.
Successful secondary teachers operate in many different ways, but they have one thing in common - an ability to manage their classrooms effectively. Without the skills required to do this, the most inspiring and knowledgeable teacher will fail.
In Class Management in the Secondary School, Ted Wragg helps teachers to clarify their own aims and to find the strategies which will work for them. Topics covered include:
*first encounters
*the establishment of rules
*relationships
*management of time and space
*specific discipline problems
There are certain skills that teachers possess that are of paramount importance - class management is one of those areas. Effective classroom management can be the single most influential factor in getting it right and is a core teaching skill that both trainee and experienced teachers should constantly be improving on.
