Overview

A brand new, comprehensive text for the field that takes a proactive, child-centered approach, Classroom Management: Creating Positive Classrooms for all Students walks teachers and pre-service teachers through a detailed, step-by-step plan that will enable them to develop their own personal and unique design for classroom management practices that they will enact in the classroom. Readers will be asked to examine their personal views and ambitions for classroom management, motivation and engagement; think about and develop their hopes and aspirations for the students that they will teach and the relationships and structures that they will build in order to attain their goals. Considering multiple perspectives, implementing and evaluating practices, the author provides the necessary needed to examine the full spectrum of classroom management practices including the student, family and cultural viewpoints, and understanding not only student needs but the teacher’s own perceptions in the context of the school and the community. Furthermore readers will appreciate the special attention that is given to these topics related to classroom management: professional collaboration with regard to school and classroom climate, inclusion, education of diverse learners, preparing learners for living in a democratic society, evidence-based practices, motivation and engagement, classroom management practices that enhance academic achievement, current research and practices, the role of social interaction in learning and behavior, examples of Action Research in the classroom, culturally-responsive classroom management, peer mediation and conflict resolution, real-life examples, excerpts from interviews of children and adolescents, and quotes from classroom teachers. An excellent textbook choice for all undergraduate- and graduate-level courses in Classroom Management, also suitable for courses in Educational Psychology.
