Overview

Classroom management is the number one issue for both new teachers and experienced educators. Best-selling author Marsha L. Tate shows that with appropriate planning, a classroom manager can reduce learning problems and increase academic achievement. She demonstrates how to cultivate a physical classroom environment conducive to learning, develop a proactive classroom management plan, deliver brain-compatible lessons, and deal with chronic behavior problems.

Providing easy-to-implement strategies, this reader-friendly guide covers the use of lighting, music, humor, constructive conversations, movement, classroom rituals, and parental support to actively engage students in a positive way.

Each chapter follows a consistent structure and contains a clear definition of the strategy, the strategy's theoretical framework, numerous sample classroom applications, and reflective activities for creating your own strategies.

A renowned speaker, Tate has taught over 125,000 teachers, parents, and community leaders worldwide. Designed to complement her other best-selling books, this new work is sure to be an essential resource for all teachers.

Editorial Reviews

Kathryn McCormick
"This is the best book I've read on classroom discipline. Classroom management and discipline are tough topics for teachers. Marcia Tate includes fantastic ideas in a nonthreatening manner."
Denise Leonard
"Teachers of any grade level, Pre K through adult, can benefit from this book. It is an easy read, with useful ideas that are backed up by quality research. Teachers can read about a strategy very quickly, learn why it is important, discover the steps for implementation, and begin reflecting on how to apply the strategy to their own classroom. "
