Overview

Elementary Classroom Management, 5/e

By C. M. Charles, Gail W. Senter

Mindful of current legislation, this teacher-friendly, standards-driven edition of Elementary Classroom Management examines issues and models of management concerns in twenty-first century elementary classrooms.

Well-conceived classroom management helps establish positive environments and programs where communication, cooperation, and dedication to learning prevail. This text is designed to assist teachers, both novice and experienced, in developing and refining management skills that lead to learning and enjoyment in the classroom. While based upon proven research methods, the aim of the text is to provide clear, practical advice. Case studies and vignettes are used to illustrate key ideas.

Here’s what your colleagues are saying…

“I have enjoyed using the Charles and Senter textbook for 3 semesters. The text is extremely well organized, easy to understand, and includes eye-catching and at times, humorous illustrations. It provides a valuable theoretical base for discussions on various components of a classroom management plan.”

—Janice Janz, University of New Orleans

“This is the most comprehensive and one of the best overall texts that I have read in a long time. I like the balanced approach in general.”

—Penelope A. Wong, California State University Chico
